Easy Steps for using the BuckHook™ system:
- 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.
- 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.
- Once in place, climb up near BuckHook™.
- 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.
- 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.
- Once the lifeline is installed, other climbers can connect their harness to a mobile fall arrester and ascend and descend the lifeline.
