Fall arrest protection: The Jelco Pole Choker™ is cited to be the ultimate and most widely used wood pole fall restraint device in North America. This device was designed on the principles of a standard pole strap. The 1 3/4 inch wide yellow nylon inner strap "chokes" the pole; while the roller's teeth "dig in" to provide the gripping force required to prevent you from falling to the ground.
The yellow choker strap is adjustable, helping the worker to extend his reach in a safe manner. When the choker strap is disconnected, it functions the same as a standard pole strap. The Pole Choker is available in four sizes, from the smallest distribution pole to the largest transmission pole.
