Easy Steps for using the BuckHook™ system:

  1. Attach a short lifeline and mobile fall arrestor to sternal attachment on harness. For connecting lanyards longer than 12″ a shock pack should be attached to the dorsal attachment.
  2. Using the extension pole with BuckHook™ and 7/16″ or ½” non-stretch rope attached, lift and secure hook onto lattice so that the end of the pole is below foot level.
  3. Once in place, climb up near BuckHook™.
  4. Secure secondary positioning lanyard around tower leg. Once secure, move BuckHook™ to next highest point making sure end of the pole is below user’s feet.
  5. Once at the work site user should secure an anchor sling to a suitable anchorage point. The primary vertical lifeline can then be attached to the anchor sling.
  6. Once the lifeline is installed, other climbers can connect their harness to a mobile fall arrester and ascend and descend the lifeline.
