How to Measure Life Lines
Note: Please read and follow these instructions completely. If you have questions or are unsure about something, call or email us before you place an order for rigging. We're happy to answer any questions you may have.
What you will need:
A fiberglass or Steel (no-stretch) measuring tape at least as long as the rigging you will be measuring.
A fixed anchor point
Note: You will be providing us lengths from bearing surface to bearing surface. Please visit this page in sure you are measuring from the bearing surface.
Note: We are unable to reuse any hardware from existing lifelines.
Note: coated wire traps salt and moisture, makes visual inspection difficult and leads to early life line failure. APS makes lifelines from non-coated 1x19 wire only; required to pass ORC regulations.
2. Measure and record your lifeline dimensions from bearing surface to bearing surface on the printed measurement sheet.
3. Indicate all requested part numbers on the measurement sheet.
4. Fax or mail the print out to APS to place your order. Fax: (410) 268-0527
