This lanyard style utilizes a friction-creating Prusik folded midline to
provide the user with adjustment and full security at minimal cost.
Designed originally for linesmen scaling telephone poles (which have minimal taper), the buckstrap required very little
adjustment. Although used frequently by tree care workers, the buckstrap
provides limited range on dramatically tapering trees. A secondary
limitation of this lanyard is that the Prusik hitch (adjusting
mechanism) will sometimes be located in a difficult-to-reach location on
the opposite side of the tree because of the way the system is
adjusted. If you like or are used to this type of lanyard, consider a
Prusik-adjusting lanyard that keeps the Prusik on your hip!
