Compact Self-Retracting Lifelines

Personal Fall Limiters are designed to be lightweight, durable, and comfortable. They reduce fall distance to mere inches, which reduces the forces put on your body during a fall. The Diablo series from Guardian are some of the lightest on the market.



They come in a variety of sizes, styles, and from a hand full of different brands. And you can use them as a single leg, or twin-leg device. There are even some designed specifically for foot level tie-off.


Connect the SRL to your dorsal d-ring using a rated carabiner, and then pull the lanyard from the device to tie-off. Many compact twin-leg SRLs, like the DBI Sala Nano-Lok and the FallTech Duratech lines use a carabiner or connection device that actually slides under the webbing below the dorsal-d ring on your harness. This leaves the d-ring open in case a rescue is necessary. The video below shows how to install the Duratechs.
