The Universal Three Point Crotch Strap Small is for adjustment up to 105cm, as a guide it is more suitable for wearers typically less than 5ft 4 / 162cm.
This Universal Three Point Crotch Strap Small will fit most lifejackets and it is manufactured in the UK. It can give more stability than a conventional single point strap following inflation.
This crotch strap is made of strong webbing as used in the lifejacket webbing. Key seams are all box and cross-stitched off with red thread allowing the wearer to easily identify any signs of wear.
The adjustment is up to 105cm allowing ample adjustment but as a guide more suitable for wearers typically less than 5’4″/162cm so that the wearer doesn’t have a long length of excess strap to contend with.
You need to consider whether your lifejacket is a chest belt or waist belt. A chest belt “Hi-Line” jacket will require a longer strap setting.
To aid setup please check out the pictures on the listing. The rear of the belt loops through itself around the lifejacket webbing at the back. The small front pieces loop over either side of the buckle on the front or can be looped through themselves to the side of the jacket lobes. Connect the 2 loops to the main strap with the quick release buckles and adjust to ensure a comfortable fit.
The Commercial sector is really pushing the use of crotch straps. Many offshore industries will not allow workers to wear lifejackets without crotch straps. They provide greater security for the wearer should they end up in the water and all lifejacket wearers should consider using one.
You may prefer to consider the standard length Three Point Crotch Strap with adjustment up to 140cm.
