Full description


Petzl Double Absorbica Y Elasticated Lanyard 150cm

Designed to offer continuous protection when passing intermediate anchors or progressing around or up / down a structure by successively detaching and re-attaching the two arms, this Petzl Absorbica-Y lanyard is equipped with elasticated arms which keep the set up as compact as possible and avoids the issue of excess tape or rope getting in the way when working or moving.  

The energy of any fall is absorbed by the tearing of Absorbica shockpack energy absorber, which is suitable for users weighing between 50 and 130kg. Progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users. This 'naked' lanyard gives the user the opportunity to retrofit a range of connectors onto each end of the lanyard. The Absorbica (shockpack) end comes complete with a 'String' (rubber keeper) which should be fitted to the connector of your choice to help reduce the risk of improper loading of the connector (it stops the connector from rotating). 


Twin Lanyard Use


How much does the lanyard stretch?

Approx. 50cm

What is the length of the lanyard unstretched / stretched (lanyard and Absorbica shock pack)

Approx. 90cm / 140cm

What connectors do you recommend to use with this lanyard?

If you are regularly taking the lanyard on / off your harness then we would recommend using a Petzl Am'D double or triple action karabiner or similar. The double and triple action karabiner lock automatically once the karabiner gate is released. These should be used with the 'String' to ensure the karabiner loading is end to end. For a more semi-permanent attachment, we would recommed a Petzl Ring Open or Swivel Open

How do you fit retrofit scaffold hooks to the lanyards?

Use either the new Petzl MGO Open Double Action Scaffold Hooks or any of our scaffold hooks connected using an 8mm Standard Shape Maillon 

What is the maximum clearance distance required?

This depends on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the weight of the user and the fall distance. Petzl provide a very good guide which can be found by clicking here
