MSA is streamlining lanyard options to make selection easier and faster. Introducing the latest additions to the V-Series family: standard, tieback, and stretch lanyards! As a reminder, MSA will be phasing out select lanyard families in the near future.


The V-Series Standard, Tieback, and Stretch Lanyards are the latest addition to the MSA V-Series family of Fall Protection products.  With their new look, smaller energy absorber, and improved label protection, the transition from older styles of lanyards will be an easy choice.

The new V-Series Lanyards will help simplify the product selection process using iconography that will make identifying lanyard type quick and easy.  Attached are conversion guides for each of the mentioned lanyard families to assist in the selection process:
