User Instructions must always be available to the user and are not to be removed except by the user of this equipment. For prop er use, see supervisor, User Instructions, or contact the manufacturer. Compliant fall protection and emergency rescue systems help prevent serious injury during fall arrest. Users and purchasers of this equipment must read and understand the User Instructions provided for correct use and care of this product. All users of this equipment m ust understand the instructions, operation, limitations and consequences of improper use of this equipment and be properly trained prior to use pe r OSHA 29 CFR 1910.66 and 1926.503 or applicable local standards. Misuse or failure to follow warnings and instructions may result in serious personal injury or death. PURPOSE The RAF100N is an anchorage connector designed to function as an interface between the anchorage and a fall protection, work po sitioning, rope access, or rescue system for the purpose of coupling the system to the anchorage. Any references to “anchorage connector” in th is manual include, and apply to, the RAF100N. USE INSTRUCTIONS 1. A user must be of sound mind and body to properly and safely use this equipment in normal and emergency situations. Us ers must have a physician ensure they are clear of any medical conditions that may aff ect the proper and safe use of this equipment in normal and emergency situations. 2. Before using a personal fall arrest system, user must be trained in accordance with the requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 19 10.66 in the safe use of the system and its components. 3. Use only with ANSI/OSHA compliant personal fall arrest or restraint systems. The anchorage must have the strength cap able of supporting a static load, applied in the directions permitted by the system, of at least 10,000-lbf (44kN) in the absence of certifi cation. 4. The user shall be equipped with a means of limiting the maximum dynamic forces exerted on the user during the arrest of a fall to a maximum of 6 kN (1350-lbf ) 5. Use of this product must be approved by an Engineer or other qualifi ed person to be compatible with any and all structural & operational characteristics of the select ed installation location and system to be connected to this anchorage con nector. Improper use may result in serious personal injury or death. 6. The anchorage connector must be inspected prior to each use for wear, damage, and other deterioration. If defective components are found the anchorage connector must be immediately removed from service in accordance with the requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910.66 and 1926.502. 7. The anchorage connector should be positioned in such a way that minimizes the potential for falls and the potential fa ll distance during use. The complete fall protection system must be planned (including all components, calculating fall clearanc e, and swing fall) before using. 8. A rescue plan, and the means at hand to implement it, must be in place that provides the prompt rescue of users in the event of a fall, or assures that users are able to rescue themselves. 9. After a fall occurs the anchorage connector must be removed from service and destroyed immediately. USE LIMITATIONS: The anchorage connector shall not be used outside its limitations, or for any purpose other than that for which it is intended. 1. The anchorage connector is designed for up to two users at one time as part of a fl exible horizontal lifeline system with a capacity up to 310 lbs (140kg) per user including clothing, tools, etc. (See anchorage requirements in the User Instructions for the fl exible horizontal lifeline system). When used as a direc t anchorage connection, the anchorage connector has a single user max capacity of 310 lbs including clothing, tools, etc. 2. The anchorage connector may be pulled in any direction shown in the LOADING CONDITIONS DIAGRAM. 3. The anchorage connector is designed to be used in temperatures ranging from -40ºF to +130ºF (-40°C to +54°C). 4. Do not expose the anchorage connector to chemicals or harsh solutions which may have a harmful eff ect. 5. Do not alter or modify this product in anyway. 6. Caution must be taken when using any component of a fall protection, work positioning, rope access, or rescue system n ear moving machinery, electrical hazards, sharp edges, or abrasive surfaces, as contact may cause equipment failure, per sonal injury, or death. 7. Do not use/install equipment without proper training by a “competent person” as defined by OSHA 29 CFR 1926.32(f ). 8. Do not remove the labeling from this product. 9. Additional requirements and limitations may apply depending on anchorage type and fastening option utilized for instal lation. All placements must be approved by an engineer or other qualifi ed person. Improper use may result in serious personal injury or death. 10. This anchorage connector should not be used as part of a horizontal lifeline system that has not been designed and or approved to be used with 10,000-lbf anchorage connectors. 11. The anchorage connector should only be used for personal fall protection and not for lifting equipment. COMPATIBILITY LIMITATIONS Anchorage connector must only be coupled to compatible connectors. OSHA 29 CFR 1926.502 prohibits snaphooks from being engaged to certain objects unless two requirements are met: it must be a locking type snaphook, and it must be “designed for” making such a connec tion. “Designed for” means that the manufacturer of the snaphook specifically designed the snaphook to be used to connect to the equipment liste d. The following connections must be avoided, because they can result in rollout* when a nonlocking snaphook is used: • Direct connection of a snaphook to horizontal lifeline. • Two (or more) snaphooks connected to one D-ring. • Two snaphooks connected to each other. • A snaphook connected back on its integral lanyard. • A snaphook connected to a webbing loop or webbing lanyard. • Improper dimensions of the D-ring, rebar, or other connection point in relation to the snaphook dimensions that would allow the snaphook keeper to be depressed by a turning motion of the snaphook. *Rollout: A process by which a snaphook or carabiner unintentionally disengages from another connector or object to which it is coupled. (ANSI Z359.1-2007) MAINTENANCE, CLEANING AND STORAGE Cleaning periodically will prolong the life and proper functioning of the product. The frequency of cleaning should be determin ed by inspection and by severity of the environment. Clean with compressed air and/or a stiff brush using plain water or a mild soap and water solution. Do not use any corrosive chemicals that could damage the product. Wipe all surfaces with a clean dry cloth and hang to dry, or use compressed air. When not in use, store anchorage connectors in a cool, dry, clean environment, out of direct sunlight and free of corrosive or other degrading e lements.

Set the unit with a slight tug on the anchor loop. 7. The stop sleeve must always be partially inserted into the hole. 10” REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS: 1. When removing anchor, place your thumb inside the anchor loop and your fi rst two fi ngers around the trigger. Squeeze fi ngers and thumb together till the trigger and spring fully compress. 2. While squeezing the trigger pull the anchor out of the hole. 3. If the anchor becomes stuck, insert a punch, screwdriver or other object into the hole until it touches the top of the cleaning bushing. 4. Lightly tap with a hammer making sure the tool is touching the top of the cleaning bushing while squeezing the trigger. (The cleaning bushing should be easily visible at the edge of the hole). 5. If tool was required to remove the anchor inspect thoroughly for damage after removal. If damage is found remove from service and destroy immediately. 10” Compliance: OSHA 1926.502 & 1910.6 CE 0321 / EN 795:1996 (+A1:2000) Class B
