A heavy-duty lanyard perfect for keeping track (and possession) of your essentials… pliers, fish grips, Boga Grips, Mirage Drive, phone case, etc.
Stainless steel cable inside, coated with clear, durable plastic. The ends are looped and crimped and build to last. Comes with a small carabiner on each end which works great for clipping to belt loops, surf bags, or kayak pad-eyes. Coils up to approximately 4-6″, and stretches to about 48″.
When I asked my supplier how strong these were, he didn’t really have an answer for me. All he told me was, “I haven’t broken one yet.” So I’ve put these through about as much testing as I’m capable of in my own workshop. Being primarily a kayak fisherman, I’m always a little paranoid about trusting my gear to those cheap little plastic lanyards that come with your pliers and fish grips.
So far I’ve personally tested these lanyards with a 60# Boga on one end & a 30# Boga on the other. My buddy and I bottomed out both Boga scales and he pulled me across the room. I’ve even used them to tow another kayaker when the battery on their little motor died, so yeah, they’re pretty heavy-duty. But to be fair, I don’t personally make them; I buy them wholesale and share the love because I think they’re an excellent product. So far I haven’t broken one, but I’ll be sure to update this listing if I ever find out the true strength rating.
I also have aluminum crimp sleeves and heat-shrink wrap for permanently attaching these heavy-duty lanyards directly to your gear (to bypass one carabiner). If you’d like to take advantage of this, please contact me first and we can arrange to meet at a show or we’ll have you ship the pliers/fish grips to us.
