Fall protection

Self-retracting lifeline


The Werner Bantam Switch is the first reverse-system SRL for professionals working at height. The SRL transfers the weight of the housing unit from the user’s back to the anchor point and lightens the load to zero pounds. It minimizes the fall arrest distance to less than 32 inches while keeping average arrest forces to less than 900 pounds. The SRL is available in 6- and 9-foot working lengths, single leg or twinleg, and snap hook or rebar hook.
