Harness lanyards are an extremely versatile product which can be used for a number of functions by a wide variety of organisations and individuals. They are used primarily for holding onto documents and items at work or held onto by security personnel as a measure of safety. They can also be used to hold personal items such as keys and phones, and come in a variety of different materials and colours. While there are many different uses for the harness lanyard, one of the most common uses is to hold an extension lead (also known as a retractor).
The major difference between an extension lead and a safety harness lanyard is that the latter does not have a clip to connect to a strap. Instead, the lead has a small, adjustable clip that can be clipped onto any waistband or belt to which a safety harness lanyard will attach. The advantage of using the clip-like extension system rather than the more traditional buckle or pull system is that it provides the user with more versatility and makes it possible to wear the lanyard in ways which wouldn't be possible if the lanyard were simply worn around the neck. For example, the small clip-like internal shock lanyard will attach to a waistband or waistline whilst the larger external shock lanyard will attach to a backpack or messenger bag, which would not be possible without the use of a harness.
Another very common use for the harness lanyard is as a form of identification. Harness lanyards can be made in a variety of different sizes and colours, and these can be used to create your own unique identification tag. These tags can be used to hold onto your bike, luggage, pocket etc. and are highly customizable, allowing you to add your name, logo or even text in order to personalize your lanyard. Even a simple "Thank You" message from you can be added to a harness lanyard, so you can always be sure that whoever you're with is aware of where you're going and what you're doing.
The third most common use for harnesses and lanyards is as a non-shock absorbing component for an electronic device. These typically come in the form of a USB cable, which allows you to charge your laptop, mobile phone or other electronic device while still keeping your hands free. As well as being able to charge these items, they also give you the freedom to carry them around in order to access various components of your electronic device without having to remove them, allowing you to concentrate on the task at hand.
One of the most common uses for the harness lanyards is as a means of communication. Most phones come with built in cameras and microphones, which allow for people to share images and videos with the rest of their family quickly and easily. As well as being able to upload these images or videos to social media sites such as Facebook, many devices also allow users to send and receive text messages from their phones. This communication feature between devices makes using a long cable or cord extremely impractical, meaning that most modern phones are tethered to a wall in order to make it possible to enjoy these additional features.
The Fall protection lanyard are usually very durable, as they're often used to secure small items. They're also very small, making them perfect for keeping within the waistband of a bag or shirt. Because they're usually made from a material that doesn't conduct electricity, you can expect that a harness lanyard which has been left on in the environment will remain safe and secure. A harness lanyard which has been left on in a stressful situation will inevitably become frayed and lose its ability to hold, making for an embarrassing situation for anyone wearing it.
