Vi-Go Ladder Climbing Safety Systems (Cable)
Continuous fall protection when climbing fixed ladders

New Vi-Go™ Ladder Climbing Safety Systems provide the ultimate in safety with continuous fall protection when climbing fixed ladders. Systems are available in easy-to-install kits or as a build your own option.

Vi-Go Ladder Climbing Safety Systems offer many unique advantages:

  • Lower cost of ownership – Do-it-yourself kits for easy installation and inspection. No costly, annual manufacturer inspections often required by other systems.
  • Option to cut cable lengths on site for greater versatility.
  • Accommodate up to four (4) workers at a time – Increasing productivity.
  • Select Automatic or Manual Personal Fall Arrester Cable Sleeves – Both cable sleeves are designed to follow the user along the lifeline while ascending or descending, instantly locking in the event of a fall.



Vi-Go Continuous Ladder Climbing Safety Systems with Automatic Pass-Through


  • Uninterrupted fall protection – Uniquely-designed, patent-pending Vi-Go Cable Sleeve automatically bypasses intermediate cable guides, keeping both hands free for climbing; travels smoothly along cable and locks instantly in the event of a fall.
  • Easy, one-hand operation for attachment/detachment from the system. No pins/chains or external parts to lose or damage.
  • Automatic pass-through cable guides secure lifeline to prevent cable wear and enable the system to accommodate curves.
  • Withstand harsh environments – The Vi-Go Cable Sleeve is constructed with durable, corrosion-resistant aluminum and stainless steel components.
  • Attachment mechanism engineered to prevent incorrect installation, ensuring greater safety. Unit will not open if attached incorrectly.
  • Cable sleeve integrated shock-absorbing element
  • – Provides a “dual shock-absorbing system” to further reduce fall forces. Protects the system and ladder from damage.
    – Once a fall occurs, the deployed shock absorber indicates the unit must be taken out of service.
  • Accommodate 5/16-in. (8 mm) or 3/8-in. (10 mm) cable.



Cable sleeve must be purchased separately.
