The Eaglehook Fall Restraint System was developed to prevent workers from falling from transport trailers that are 102 inches wide and fitted with a top rail. This system was designed to comply with CSA standard Z-259.16-04 and ANSI Z359.0-2007 for fall protection. The Eaglehook Fall Restraint System prevents workers from traveling to the edge of the trailer or to a surface that may present a fall. It is ergonomically designed and made of lightweight aluminium to enable the worker to lift the mount to the trailer top without difficulty.
