Product History 1987 to 2017

Genuine Lifehook products are the original line of articulated fall protection anchors for utility pole climber safety. Lifehook is the leading safety anchor used in pole climber training of apprentice line workers in a variety of industries. This innovative brand of articulated fall protection anchor was produced in Connecticut between 1987 and 2017.

The industry’s first pole-top design was the “L” series introduced in 1987, and it featured a 360º rotating davit, an adjustable mounting bracket, and an exclusive rust-proof hot-dip galvanized finish. This series had three design generations (#3, #54, and #55). Later versions featured increased breakage strengths, optional oversize mounting brackets, and an optional royal blue painted finish.

Another Lifehook innovation is the “FB” series, the industry’s first height-adjustable articulated fall protection anchor for utility pole climber safety. These models featured a 250º rotating davit that could be set at any height on the pole. They could be used alone or with other Lifehook products for training two workers on the same pole. First generation models (#5) had a safety red painted finish, second generation models (#6) were royal blue. A special batch of first generation models featured an exclusive rust-proof hot-dip galvanized finish.

Through the years, the patented Reeve design spawned special models for other industry hazards including ladder safety and rescue applications. The last design concept was the “M” series, a complete pole climber fall arrest safety system that is compact and portable, made of lightweight materials, and featured a folding articulated davit with integrated load/impact indicator.

The Lifehook brand has become synonymous with innovation, industry leading design, and for setting the highest standards for product quality in the utility safety market. After thirty years of saving lives and preventing countless thousands of injuries, production of the Lifehook fall protection anchor ended in 2017. Lifehook products continue to be used in electric utility, telephone, cable television, and government training applications across the USA, and at military bases in Germany, Italy, and Japan.
