Mobile fall arrester with locking function
Meets ANSI Z359.15 criteria when used with a RAY 12mm rope with a sewn termination. System includes Petzl's: ASAP LOCK, load limiting energy 'SORBER INTERNATIONAL (20 or 40 cm)and BM'D triact locking carabiner with a CAPTIV positioning bar.
The ASAP LOCK mobile fall arrester is designed to facilitate handling during rope ascents. In normal use, the device moves freely along the rope without any manual intervention and follows the user in all his/her movements. In case of shock or sudden movement, the fall arrester locks on the rope and stops the user. The integrated locking function allows the user to immobilize the device in order to reduce the length of a fall. The connection arm makes the system drop-resistant when passing intermediate anchors. The ASAP LOCK is used with an energy absorber to work at a distance from the rope.
NOTE: Use of sternal fall arrest rings requires a maximum freefall distance of 2 feet to meet OSHA's standards. Tight ropes and minimal slack are necessary in any safe system.

The top guy, tie or brace of completed scaffolds shall be placed no further than the 4:1 height from the top. Such guys, ties and braces shall be installed at each end of the scaffold and at horizontal intervals not to exceed 30 feet (9.1 m) (measured from one end [not both] towards the other).
