Fall protection harnesses

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Fall protection harnesses covered by this policy

A full body harness is a body holding device used to protect from falls, by distributing the force of the fall over a large area of the body. These products ensure that the subject of the fall remains suspended in an upright position after the fall has occurred. Full body harnesses are designed to minimize the risk of injuries caused by suspension.
