The anchoring stick is a component of the protective equipment against falling from height, used within the fall arrest system, in order to obtain of an anchoring point of the flexible anchoring support on the metallic consoles of poles and the lattice of metallic poles of high voltage overhead power lines.
The anchoring stick can be used by a single person whose personal protective equipment must include a fall arrest system with a sliding fall arrester specified in SR EN 353-2.

The connecting carabiner between the stick and the anchoring support, the flexible anchoring support and the fall arrester with energy absorber and connector are not part of the product, but can be delivered separately as optional equipment.
