Lanyard Management Clips 3-Pack (Assorted Colors)

Lanyard Management Clips 3-Pack (Assorted Colors)


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.
