FRANKLIN, PA. (November 15, 2011) — Honeywell Safety Products announces the new Miller StopFall™ Fall Restraint Device, is a work positioning and fall restraint system designed to help linemen easily and naturally climb (hitchhike) wood poles with a circumference from 20-in. to 60-in.

 

Its minimal points of adjustment allow for quick and easy operation, while the unique spring-loaded cinching feature provides an effective non-slip system that keeps the unit in constant contact around the pole.

 

Other features include:

• Unique, corrosion-resistant, stainless steel spring-loaded gaffs provide excellent stopping power on dry or wet wood poles.

• Integrated gaff pullers have an easy-to-grasp design, even when wearing heavy-duty linemen’s gloves. Fingers are protected by keeping them away from the gaffs while climbing.

• Protective spring cover with non-metal zipper allows for easy access to inspect and clean spring

components.

• Two-piece spring assembly prevents a continuous electrical path.

• Cam buckle webbing adjuster on inner strap provides easy one-hand adjustment for proper pole

circumference.

• User-friendly design makes training quick and easy.

 

The Miller StopFall Fall Restraint Device meets OSHA and CSA Z259.14-01 Type A performance requirements. Innovative Miller fall protection products enhance worker safety and productivity.
