Work Positioning Lanyards / Fliplines (non-steel-core)

Rope fliplines/safety lanyards provide a secure attachment to the tree, without the stiffness or weight of a steel cable. Rope safety lanyards feature locking rope clips and are available made from a wide selection of ropes, from as small as 11mm (7/16") up to 16mm (5/8") for different grips.

All of our positioning lanyards are available in money-saving kits.

The splicing professionals at Iron Street Rope Splicing can make a custom flipline for you using any spliceable rope and suitable hardware. Just ask!

Super-durable flipline made from Yale's R.I.N.G. (Red is No-Go) rope. The modified Technora over-braid maximizes cut and abrasion resistance. These fliplines have added ease of inspection thanks to the red core in R.I.N.G. rope. If you see red, you know the rope jacket has been compromised. These safety features make the R.I.N.G flipline a great worry-free option.

Available as a lanyard kit with Positioner.

Many climbers are discovering the benefits of carrying an extra-long lanyard with them as they ascend. The length of the lanyard lets it be used like a second climbing line, and can be switched to when the main climbing line needs to be advanced. The extra length in a positioning lanyard opens up possibilities for working the canopy, and when you don't need the full length, store the excess in the lanyard pouch or Climb Bucket.

Lanyard comes with RIT prusik, SMC micro pulley, and 2 x Rock Exotica oval carabiners.

These fliplines are made from shorts of rope left over in our splicing department so you get a great deal on a new flipline! The ropes will vary, but they will always have a minimum break strength of at least 5,000 lbs so you can count on their strength. We will be making these from some ropes we don't normally make fliplines out of, so it will be a good choice if you are looking for a flipline in a unique color. Lengths will vary between ten and fifteen feet. Available with your choice of aluminum or steel snap.

Buckingham once again brings us a great flipline for demanding jobs. This flipline features the same stiffness you would see in a wire core flipline without the metal core, which makes it ideal for "hitchhiking" and climbing near energized lines. The extra rigidity makes it easier to handle and more durable on coconut and palm trees than regular non-steel core fliplines, and has a red wear indicator to warn when the product should be replaced. Features 7/16" Uniline rope, a 1" integral loop, snap hook, and Buckgrab Adjuster.

Lanyard Management Clips 3-Pack (Assorted Colors)

Lanyard Management Clips 3-Pack (Assorted Colors) New in 2018!

fli904

3-packs of plastic lanyard clips, ideal for managing the slack on your tree-climbing lanyards up to 1/2”. These can be installed on the gear loops of many harnesses, such as the treeMOTION, Sequoia, and many Buckingham harnesses. A pair of needlenose pliers can be used to help install the clip. If your harness does not have cord gear loops, you can always install the clip on your own with some 5-6mm accessory cord. Once installed, the clips give you a quick place to snap the loose end of your lanyard to get that slack out of the way.

Colors vary pack to pack.
