Anchor Trolley™

The Anchor Trolley™ is our ultimate innovation in rolling trolley technology. The Anchor Trolley is designed with cone teeth made of hardened alloy steel that act as a braking mechanism and engage the steel track in the event of a fall. The engagement of the trolley teeth and track causes the trolley to anchor into place without changing the track, virtually eliminating post-fall drift. The Anchor Trolley greatly increases the opportunity for conscious and able-bodied workers to perform a self-rescue after a fall event. Like our other trolleys, the Anchor Trolley is made from non-consumable materials while being weather and temperature-proof. This design ensures that you still have the same smooth movement that has come to be associated with Rigid Lifelines® enclosed track fall arrest trolleys.

Features & Options


How it Works

The Anchor Trolley™ uses a simple design that engages automatically during a fall event. The attachment point for the self-retracting lanyard (SRL) hangs below the enclosed track. If at least 80 pounds of force, including the weight of the SRL, are exerted on the SRL attachment, the hands-free brakes will engage. When the brakes are engaged, a series of eight hardened-alloy steel contact points create friction against the enclosed track. The friction generated by the contact points, in conjunction with the weight of the worker, causes the trolley to stop all movement on the track. After the weight of the worker has been removed from the trolley, the contact points are lifted and the trolley can resume rolling along the track.

Other Benefits

The Anchor Trolley™ has been built with non-consumable parts, meaning the Anchor Trolley requires minimal maintenance and minimal parts that may need repair. In addition to requiring little maintenance, the Anchor Trolley is weather and temperature-proof. To ensure that you have a full range of motion while using the Anchor Trolley, our engineers designed the swiveling connector (where you attach your SRL) to have 360-degree rotation and allow for 30-degree off-center loading (as allowed by OSHA).
