Webbing

    Inspect the entire surface of webbing for damage. Beginning at one end, bend the webbing in an inverted “U.” Holding the body side of the belt toward you, grasp the belt with your hands six to eight inches Apart. This surface tension makes the damaged fibers or cuts easier to see. Watch for frayed edges, broken fibers, pulled stitches, cuts, burns and chemical damage.

Hardware Condition:

    “D” Rings/Back Pads: Check “D” rings for distortion, cracks, breaks and rough or sharp edges. The “D” ring should pivot freely. “D” ring back pads should also be inspected for damage.
    Attachment of Buckles: Note any unusual wear, frayed or cut fiber, or distortion of the buckles.
    Tongue/Grommet: The tongue receives heavy wear from repeated buckling and unbuckling. Inspect for loose, distorted or broken grommets. The webbing should not have any additional punched holes.
    Tongue Buckle: Buckle tongues should be free of distortion in shape and motion. They should overlap the buckle frame and move freely back and forth in their socket. The roller should turn freely on the frame. Check for Distortion or sharp edges.
    Friction and Mating Buckles: Inspect the buckle for distortion. The outer bars and center bars must be straight. Pay special attention to Corners and attachment points of the center bar.

Wire Rope / Lanyard Retraction & Tension Test

    Do not pull lifeline out of the housing or let it retract while the unit is lying flat. Always inspect and operate the unit in a mounted position. The purpose of the lanyard retraction & tension test is to ensure the lifeline is retracting smoothly into and out of the housing.
  • Cuts / Frayed Areas

  • Worn or Broken Strands / Wires

  • Overall Deterioration / Excessive Outside Wear

  • Modifications by the User

  • Corrosion / Pitting

  • Crushed / Jammed or Flattened Strands

  • Bulges in the Rope

  • Gaps Between Strands

  • Heat Damage / Torch Burns / Electrical Arc Strikes

  • Kinks / Bird Caging

  • Core Protrusion

SRL Retraction & Tension Test

    The purpose of the lanyard retraction & tension test is to ensure the lifeline is retracting smoothly into and out of the housing.
    Steps:
    1.) Mount retractable on anchorage point
    2.) Pull out 50% of the lifeline length
    3.) Maintain a light tension on the lifeline (approx. 1 lb. (0.45kg)
    4.) Allow lifeline to retract back into housing.
    5.) Repeat Steps 2 to 4 this time pulling out 100% of lifeline length
    Do not allow lifeline to retract into housing uncontrolled – this could result in injury and damage to the unit.
    Note: If lifeline does not pull out smoothly or sticks when retracting, pull the entire lifeline out of the housing and allow it to retract slowly under tension. Then repeat the above test.
    Result – The lifeline should pull out freely and retract all the way back into the unit. Remove from service if device does not pass this test.
  • Does SRL Pass the Requirements of the Retraction & Tension Test?

  • Date SRL is removed from service?

Braking Test

    The purpose of the braking test is to ensure that the retractable braking mechanism is working and engaging.
    Steps:
    1.) Mount retractable on anchorage point
    2.) Grasp lifeline and apply a sharp steady pull downward until brakes engage
    3.) Keep tension on lifeline until brakes are fully engaged
    4.) Release tension
    5.) Allow lifeline to retract into housing under light tension
    Result – Brakes should engage. There should be no slippage of the lifeline while the brakes are engaged. Once tensions released, the brakes should disengage and the unit should return to retractable mode. Remove from service if device does not pass this test.
