One of the commonly used names for a Retractable / Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL) is a”YOYO.” While having a name like “YOYO” would make it seem fun to an egghead like me. Spending your time researching and money on buying a “YOYO” certainly is not.
My goal at Humpty Dumpty’s Retractable review is to make your decision a little easier by comparing products from the most trusted manufacturers in the business. And guiding you to the best places to buy them. I also have a page with Other Stuff that I think everyone should consider before doing work off of the ground (so that you won’t get egg on your face.)
I break down the two basic categories of “Retractable” in the links below. The bigger Self-Retracting Lifeline (YoYo) and the smaller Self-Retracting Lanyard (Retractable.) The YoYo is intended to be hung from the structure with the lifeline extending out to the worker’s harness. The Retractable on the other hand hangs from the worker’s harness and the lifeline extends to the structure or equipment.
