Just a casual observation, but...
Since this thread started I have been looking while driving around town for
utility line crews. While most have been using bucket trucks only, I have
seen three working on poles -- two power companies and one telephone
company. All were using simple waist belts with web-type loops. I asked a
local CATV tech about their equipment. He said all the company issued to
him was a waist belt with a rope loop.
I guess this new-fangled stuff is slow to get out here in the boonies.
Just my observations... (for what it's worth).
(Reminds me of my admonition to my childern more than a few times: "Do as I
say do, not as I do (do).")
Best wishes for the Memorial Day weekend.
