Helivac lanyard with securing of the drop-off/recovery phases
The LEZARD lanyard is designed for helivac at altitude. It allows the drop-off/recovery phases to be secured thanks to an adjustable arm that can be instantly ejected to free the victim, the rescuer and the helicopter if the latter needs to suddenly leave its stationary position. Handling the LEZARD helivac lanyard is easy thanks to the instant identification of the color-coded attachment elements and the very quick and precise adjustment of the adjustable arm with the ADJUST rope adjuster.

- Easy manipulation:
– instant identification of the attachment elements, thanks to their color coding
– very quick and precise length adjustment of the adjustable arm, thanks to the ergonomic shape of the ADJUST rope adjuster

It should thus only be used if the fall factor is less than 1 (used below the anchor point).
The LEZARD was developed by Petzl and based on a patent filed by Jean-Louis Rocourt.
