“Available May 2018”

Work positioning lanyards (NEW)

Petzl positioning lanyards allow the user to position him/herself precisely at a workstation, with feet supported on the structure. They can adapt to different anchoring configurations.

Easy handling

Sewn terminations with plastic sheaths

Sewn terminations increase strength (compared to a knotted termination) while reducing bulk. These plastic sheaths protect the stitching from friction and facilitate handling by holding the connector in position.


Double mode use

The Petzl GRILLON lanyard can be used in double mode (on the harness side attachment points) when the user works with weight on his/her feet. This type of attachment ensures better load distribution on the belt. The user precisely adjusts his/her position by pressing on the lanyard’s pivoting cam.

Single mode use

When the anchor is located above the user, the Petzl GRILLON lanyard is connected to the harness ventral attachment point, so that the load is comfortably distributed between the belt and leg loops. The user adjusts his/her position by operating the handle while holding the free end of the lanyard.

Differentiation of lanyard lengths

Lanyard length is immediately identified by a colour-coded label at the connector end.

Replacement ropes available

Petzl GRILLON lanyard ropes are also available individually.

Choosing your work positioning lanyard

Without connector

Petzl GRILLON lanyards are sold without connectors, so that they can be combined with any type of connector, depending on the user’s requirements.

With HOOK connector

Petzl GRILLON HOOK lanyards are equipped with a HOOK auto-locking connector, ideal for connections using the harness side attachment points.


Petzl GRILLON lanyards, in combination with an MGO auto-locking connector, are ideal for connection to metal structures or to large-diameter cables and bars.

Petzl RIG is a compact self-braking descender designed for experienced rope access workers. It has an ergonomic handle that allows comfortable descent control.

The AUTO-LOCK system allows users to easily position themselves at the work station without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle. The safety gate allows the rope to be installed with the device remaining connected to the harness, facilitating passage of intermediate anchors. The stainless steel wear plate improves durability by reinforcing the rope friction zone.

Installation of the rope

Rope installation is quick and easy, thanks to the rope guide and markings.

Ergonomic handle

The ergonomic handle allows the rope to be released for a comfortably controlled descent.

AUTO-LOCK system

The Petzl AUTO-LOCK system allows users to easily position themselves at a work station without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device: as soon as the user releases the handle, the rope is automatically locked in the device.

Cam manipulation

The cam can be manipulated for easily taking up rope or for belaying a lead using climbing techniques.

“Available May 2018”


The Petzl EASHOOK OPEN carabiner is designed for use at the ends of a double lanyard or work positioning lanyard.

The gated connection point allows for direct attachment of the carabiner to the lanyards. If the lanyard is damaged, the connector can thus be reused. The excellent grip and automatic locking system facilitate handling when passing intermediate anchors.

Combination of EASHOOK OPEN with ABSORBICA-Y lanyard.

The EASHOOK OPEN carabiner is easy to integrate with a lanyard with an ABSORBICA-Y energy absorber, thanks to the gated connection point.

Combination of EASHOOK OPEN with PROGRESS ADJUST lanyard.

The carabiner has a wide gated attachment hole for easy integration of a PROGRESS ADJUST progression lanyard.

Keylock system.

To ensure optimal efficiency, EASHOOK OPEN carabiners use the Keylock system: the body/gate interface does not have a hook that could snag on anchors, ropes, harness equipment loops, etc.
