G.Guard Load Arrestors

The Globestock G.Guard series of load arrestors is designed to instantly stop the descent of an overhead load. It behaves in a very similar way to a seatbelt, while the load descends steadily, the brake will not engage.

These load arrestors are incredibly versatile and have been used for fall arrest applications on car production lines, in theatres and even in nuclear power stations! We offer G.Guard Load arrestors in a selection of maximum weight capacities and cable lengths.

Here at SafetyLiftinGear.com, we stock a wide variety of scaffold hoists and scaffold hoist accessories to give you the best choice on the lifting gear market.

In keeping with that theme, we’ve added a few new additions to our solid selection of scaffold hoist goodies, with four new products to lift your spirits as well as your lofty loads.

Read on for the complete low-down on these high-quality hoist accessories.



Raise your game with these new additions to the scaffold hoist accessories range:


Brick Lifting Basket

Specifically designed for building materials, this steel lifting basket is perfect for construction jobs and site work.

With solid mesh sides for transparent visibility as well as product stability, the basket also comes adorned in bright orange paint for enhanced prominence and an eye-catching appearance.

With an overhead crane lifting point built-in, this reinforced lifting basket is capable of hoisting up to 250kg – roughly the weight of three and a half beer kegs.

Whether you’re lifting bricks or beer, rest assured that this basket won’t let you down.


Liftable Wheelbarrow

The pride and joy of Italian hardware experts, Imer, the Liftable Wheelbarrow does exactly what it says on the tin, offering mobility and lifting capabilities all in one barrow.

Despite weighing less than 20kg, this heavy-duty wheelbarrow is capable of holding up to 10x its own weight, with a maximum capacity of 200kg in the polymer tray.

For freedom of movement and structural reliability, the Imer Liftable Wheelbarrow is the perfect product to lift your spirits for the long haul.



Wheelbarrow Lifting Chains

Also newly added, our Wheelbarrow Lifting Chains provide a sturdy and reliable lifting attachment to be used with liftable wheelbarrows.

This three-legged chain sling includes two rings for the handles and a pigtail hook for the front for three-point stability of the load.

Speaking of pigs, this simple attachment is capable of withstanding 250kg of weight (coincidentally the average weight of a pig).

While we don’t recommend using this product to hoist hefty hogs, these 1-metre lifting chains are the perfect accompanying product to a liftable wheelbarrow.


Hoist Tipping Bucket

Another Italian import, this time from the mighty Boscaro company, this lofty tipping bucket is as simple to operate as it is to tip, with a simplistic tipping mechanism for easy discharge.

Made from the highest quality materials, the Hoist Tipping Bucket is ideal for use with a variety of lifting hoists, including scaffold hoists, with a max capacity of 60 litres/132kg.

While it is slightly less capable than the two options above in terms of load bearing capabilities, it makes up for it in simplicity and price, making it a great economical option for basic lifting.

1983 was a pretty big year for innovations across the pond in the USA.

Over the course of 12 months, the very first Microsoft Word package made its debut, Michael Jackson monopolised the airwaves with the Thriller album and, most importantly, McDonald’s introduced the world to the almighty McNugget. God bless America!

That same year, the US revolution continued as safety gear specialists, Ergodyne, also began operating in Minnesota. The company has been relentless in their quest to provide top class work gear for the masses ever since.

This includes two brand-new, retractable tool lanyards, available now at SafetyLiftinGear.com!



Squids 3010 and 3011 from Ergodyne

Building on the existing success of the Squids 3001 version, the new 3010 and 3011 models are the latest additions to the popular Squids range.

These new models were primarily invented to reduce the amount of snag hazards and tangles that occur when tethering tools. Created for functionality, both products are third-party certified and specifically engineered to withstand the demands of the working environment, as well as the task at hand.

How so? Let’s take a closer look…

Ergodyne Squids 3010 Rectractable Tool Lanyard

When working at height, dropped objects can spell disaster for anyone unlucky enough to be in the vicinity below. Luckily, the Squids 3010 provides ample safety for any tool carrying butterfingers that finds themselves working high above ground.

Weighing in at just 0.5lb in total, this extremely lightweight lanyard is surprisingly durable, capable of carrying tools up to ten times its weights (max load of 5lbs/2.26kg). The product also features a fixed belt loop for easy mounting to both work belts and fall protection harnesses.

Made of high-strength, cut-resistant material, the cord also comes with a protective sleeve to reduce wear and tear. Meanwhile, the casing is specifically textured for grip enhancement and additional protection of the inner workings.

A manually adjusted trigger switch allows you to set the cord at a fixed, working length, with a retracting flip switch/pull release mechanism for easy length adjustment.

It even features a revolutionary impact indicator in the form of a red cord. This red indicator becomes visible when the belt is exposed to excessive force of over 110lbs, immediately indicating if a drop has occurred.


Ergodyne Squids 3011 Rectractable Tool Lanyard

Much like its 3010 counterpart, the 3011 is also an extremely durable tethering solution when working at height.

The Squids 3011 offers all the perks of its brethren, providing lightweight, industrial grade tool support, with several additional benefits applied.

Unlike the 3010, the 3011 version is capable of withstanding additional weight, with a limit of up to 8lbs (3.6kg). Despite this fact, it still weighs in at just 0.5lbs.

The additional load capabilities allow you to attach heavier tools such as drills, grinders and wrenches, for safe work at height.

Boasting a dual carabiner, the 3011 is ideal for mounting to a D-ring user’s belt or a separate anchor point. It also includes a swivelling anchor end, ideal for reducing cord tangles when using rotating tools.


Why choose the Squids 3010 or 3011?

Designed for heightened safety in every sense of the word, these products are backed with nearly four decades of industry knowledge and expertise, resulting in two new products that are the pinnacle of retractable lanyard technology.

Watch the video below for a closer look at both products:

Ideal for use with lifting slings and tow ropes, shackles provide secure fastening and connection for a diverse range of jobs.

However, it's worth noting that not all lifting shackles are the same. In fact, there are many different types of shackles to choose from - examples include:

Galvanised Steel D Shackle

D shackles

Most commonly used on single-leg slings, D shackles (or dee shackles) - as the name suggests - are shaped like the letter D. They also resemble a loop of a chain, which explains why they are sometimes referred to as 'chain shackles'. SafetyLiftinGear stock a wide variety of High Tensile Stainless Steel D Shackles, perfect for lifting heavy loads with ease. 

Side or racking loads may bend a dee shackle, so think carefully about how you will use your shackle before making your final choice.

Black bow shackle

Bow shackles

Recognisable by their 'O' shape, bow shackles (aka omega shackles) are commonly used on multi-leg slings. Ideal for jobs such as rigging, bow shackles provide an easy way of fastening chains and straps securely. These shackles come with a variety of weight limits and in a range of colours, which can be particularly useful for live event rigging where black shackles (as pictured above) can minimise their visibility.

Green pin shackle

Green pin shackles

One of the most popular lifting shackle types in our range, our green pin shackles are essentially alloy bow shackles, providing durable reliability in eye-catching green for heightened visibility and easy identification.

These dependable fastenings are typically used with wire rope slings. Their weight limits range from 0.75 tonnes to 85 tonnes.

Safety pin shackle

Safety pin shackles

Designed for maximum security, safety and reliability, these shackles use a nut and bolt, with a safety pin providing further stability and assurance.

This particular fastening option is a popular choice for many lifting firms, including some of the leading lifting rental companies in the UK.

View Safety Pin Shackles >>

Screw pin shackle

Screw pin shackles

Primarily used for temporary applications, screw pin products are great for jobs where shackles regularly need to be removed and re-attached. When using screw pin shackles, it's important to remember to check the pin prior to each lift and re-tighten if necessary.

For jobs that include notable vibration, wire mousing can help to prevent the pin from coming unscrewed; however, safety pin shackles are usually preferable for such jobs.

Stainless steel shackle

Stainless steel shackles

Extremely durable and long-lasting, our stainless steel shackles are the ideal connection for use in tough conditions, making them the perfect fastening mechanism for sailing and industrial rigging jobs.

Simple to use and extremely reliable, these stainless steel shackles come in 1 tonne or 2 tonne varieties, with varying dimensions to suit your requirements.

Piling shackle

Piling shackles

Fully tested and certified, these long-bodied shackles provide a strong and sturdy solution, making them suitable for a variety of lifting jobs.

With a self-coloured finish, our piling shackles come in a range of durable weight categories, with weight limits ranging from 1 to 5 tonnes.

View Piling Shackles >>


In addition to all of the above, we also stock a selection of untested shackles for purely connective purposes. While these zinc-plated dee shackles cannot be used for lifting jobs and are unsuitable for carrying weight, they do make perfectly adequate connectors in situations where no force is being applied.
