Triple Safety Line 2.0m
This 2m triple hook safety line ensures you are always clipped on when moving about on deck. The middle hook is 0.5m from one end, especially useful for working at the mast.
- Safe and solid, but heavy. Review by Slightly Dampened Dave
I've used one of these clips and never had any trouble with it, so I can't complain about it not keeping me safe. But the clips are stainless steel and there's three of them, so it weighs a ton. Also it clanks a lot - makes you sound like you're wearing a suit of armour and wakes up the off watch when you're trying to brew tea at 2am.
Finally, the clips are so heavy that one of my skippers was worried about my bashing them on his gelcoat!
Some of these problems are generally true with all the "marine" safety clips. I'm currently investigating alloy climbing gear instead. It might not last as long in salt water, but it's cheaper, lighter, and just as strong/stronger.
