How to use a Work Positioning Belt


   Step 1 – Attach the belt around the waist and adjust it.


Step 3 – Attach the positioning lanyard into one of the side D-ring.


   Step 2 –  Buckle the Work Positioning Belt around your waist for snug

Step 4 –  Position yourself on the positioning object (pole, post, trunk etc.)

Step 5 –  Adjust the Lanyard length with the adjuster in order to work comfortably with both hands free.

Inspection of Harness

Step 1 – After inspection of your Harness is complete, hold harness by rear D-Ring. Gently shake Harness to ensure all straps are not twisted.


Step 3 – Fasten Chest strap and waist straps (if fitted) with buckle, ensuring each buckle plate lays flat on each other. Chest strap should fit on Upper chest.

Step 2 –  Put your Harness over each shoulder similar to putting on a coat. The rear dorsal D-ring or attachment point should now be between your shoulder blades.

Step 4 –  Reaching between your legs, connect right strap to right leg buckle ensuring buckle plates fasten through each other and adjust strap for a snug fit. Repeat for left leg. Ensure straps are not twisted or crossed.

Step 5, 6, 7, 8 – When finished above steps, ensure your harness is secured correctly including the strap which is positioned under the buttocks. The finished fitting should feel snug but not restrict movement in anyway. Finally, secure loose ends with keepers and check for twists, misaligned webbing and disconnected buckles..
