    Speaker Notes:

    Now for the device that ties the anchorage and the body harness together … the connector or lanyard.
    • Dee-rings and snap hooks shall have a minimum tensile strength of 5,000 pounds.
    • Snap hooks must be size compatible with the connection point to prevent unintentional disengagement, or shall be a locking type snap hook.

    Unless the snap hook is a locking type and designed for the following connections, snap hooks shall not be engaged:
    • Directly to webbing, rope or wire rope; (1926.502(d)(6)(i))
    • To each other; (1926.502(d)(6)(ii))
    • To a Dee-ring to which another snap hook or other connector is attached; (1926.502(d)(6)(iii))
    • To a horizontal lifeline; (1926.502(d)(6)(iv)) or,
    • To any object which is incompatibly shaped or dimensioned in relation to the snap hook such that unintentional disengagement could occur by the connected object being able to depress the snap hook keeper and release itself. (1926.502(d)(6)(v))
