For use as a personal retention lanyard in a helicopter. Designed using the first all black, non reflective, oxide plated quick release shackle made of stainless steel by Ronstan. Oversize quick release shackle allows the user to easily release from harness or belt in the event of an unplanned landing. Swedged release pin (SOCOM requirement) eliminates plunger pin from releasing in the event the retaining ring is broken. Retaining split ring is safety TIG welded. Quick release shackle uses velco to secure the release tab in place to lessen the chance of inadvertent release. Built with 4000lb. mil spec 5625 tubular webbing. Lanyard rated strength 3400 lbf. (15kN). Kong Tango double locking snap hook is classified to meet NFPA 1983/2006 edition standards. Strength 7425 lbf. (33kN). Made in USA. Yates SCREAMER Shock absorber added for energy absorbtion. In the event an activation force of 2.5 kN (600 lbs) is exerted on the lanyard during a fall the SCREAMER has the potential to absorb 2-3 kN of energy if fully activated (11 inches).
