The Bearpaw is a part of the Ballantyne Gear Eveook Non-Penetrating Anchorage Connector and is the connector at the front of the Eveook which connects the Eveook to the Ropes. The Bearpaw-L I is made to be compatible with the 12 inch wheels and is made with 2 connector holes for 2 vertical lifelines. 2 connector holes can be particularly useful for rope access work. The Eveook, using the Bearpaw-L I meets the ANSI Z359.6 standard, when used as a part of the engineered system that is described within the Technical Instruction Manual for Eveook and Systems. With the Bearpaw-L I, the Eveook system also meets OSHA 29 CFR 1926.502 and OSHA 1910.140, when used as specified in the Instruction Manual.
The Eveook and the Bearpaw were originally designed to support 2 Vertical Lifelines, but since the ANSI Z359.18 Standard on anchorage connectors does not provide guidance for more than 1 connector hole, for fall protection on an anchorage for residential style sloped roofs, the Eveooks come with a Bearpaw (the Bearpaw II) that has only 1 connector hole for a Vertical Lifeline.
