Chainsaw lanyards are meant to keep your chainsaw attached to your saddle while climbing. The loop end of the lanyard wraps around the connection point on the chainsaw and the non locking carabiner attaches to your saddle. The extra O-ring on our chainsaw lanyards allows you to snap your saw close at hand then when need be, unclip the large ring to use the saw while still keeping the saw attached to your saddle in case of an accidental drop. This 2-in-1 chainsaw strap has a built in bungee cord that stretches freely when you’re reaching with the saw and retracts neatly when hanging close to your side. Non locking wire gate carabiner included – attached to the strap.
