- Read the technical notice before viewing the following techniques.
- It is important to fully understand the information provided in the technical notice before using this complementary information
- Mastering these techniques requires training.
- Consult a professional before attempting to perform these techniques on your own.
A JANE can be knotted to form a Y-lanyard for progression and/or work positioning.
A figure-eight knot must be tied into the harness attachment point.
The short arm must measure no less than about 10 cm (without connector).
Ideally, the knot in the JANE should be tied into the metal attachment point of the harness.
Petzl has noted that some users tie directly into the harness textile attachment point. In this case, the (textile) lanyard rubbing against the (textile) attachment point can result in a high level of wear. A detailed inspection of the condition of the harness and lanyard must be done after each use and may lead to the retirement of the worn components.
Follow the Instructions for Use for the JANE, your harness, and all of your equipment.
Limit the potential for a fall:
The JANE is not an energy absorber, but its dynamic capacity allows it to absorb short falls (see table). The tightening of the knot also contributes to shock absorption: the knot should loosened on a regular basis.
