Fliplines and Lanyards

Steel-core fliplines are made with braided arborist rope over steel cable. This gives a steel-core flipline extra rigidity, making it easier to flip up the tree - especially on larger stems. A running chainsaw will easily sever a steel-core flipline; and they should not be considered chainsaw-proof. Caution must always be used in the tree.

Rope lanyards are ideal for work positioning in the canopy of trees, for spur climbing when a conductive flipline cannot be used, or any time a lighter flipline is desired.

2-in-1 fliplines and lanyards let you advance over limbs or obstacles by clipping the second end to your saddle above the obstruction before releasing the first end. Alternating ends in this way, it is easy to climb past limbs that aren't being removed without ever being untied from the tree.

Hip Prusiks

A friction knot tied using a prusik loop is another way of adjusting fliplines. With a micro-pulley, it becomes just like tending your hitch on doubled rope.

This older style safety lanyard is no longer as popular because the prusik used to adjust it is often difficult to reach around the back of the tree while climbing.
