Developed and tested by individuals with extensive experience working at heights, the Fossil Lanyard will become your new favourite lanyard, aka “cowstail.”

We understand what you want in a product and try to make it as versatile, comfortable, and durable as possible. This is the lanyard you will brag about to your colleagues.

Tested through various harsh conditions and specially developed for rope access work over 15 years, the Fossil cowstail/lanyard will suit your needs—and so do those already using it.

Made using a dynamic kernmantle rope in which a 30% reinforced sheath ensures a long lifespan and a programmed, automated stitched end-termination (Wolf’s Bight), the Fossil Lanyard is exceptionally strong and durable. Nobody makes lanyards like we do.

Furthermore, the Fossil Lanyard comes in a variety of lengths and colours, and you can add our tower hook to accommodate your work positioning needs. Yep, we thought of that.

Contact us if you want us to add your favourite hook to the end-termination.

Inspection Points for your Fossil Lanyard

Make sure you regularly inspect your lanyard visually and tactually. Look for:

Cuts – Are not allowed under any circumstances.

Abrasions – If a rope is extensively abraded, do not use it. It might indicate extensive use or it might indicate you have a problem. The latter should be investigated and dealt with using appropriate protection.

Product – Such as paint, cement, oil, dirt, etc. These types of contaminations can affect the strength of the lanyard.
Do not use the lanyard anymore.

Discoloration – Due to UV exposure or chemicals. Please stop using the lanyard; it is compromised.

Dents – Typically due to being crushed by a car or heavy load. Do not use the lanyard anymore.

Lumps – Also known as hernias, happen when a rope is crushed or resting on a sharp bend. In most cases, the mantle is damaged, and the rope’s kern is visible.

Excessive stiffness – Due to falls or contamination; in either case, do not use the rope anymore.

Glazing – Due to a fall over an edge. It would be best to find out what happened before using the lanyard.

Crispiness – Due to chemical contamination. Stop using the lanyard.
