IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE – Dirty Rigger Tool Lanyards (Update January 2024)


We previously issued a safety notice informing users of an inaccuracy that may have occurred during the testing phase of the Dirty Rigger Interchangeable Lanyard and the Dirty Rigger Podger Lanyard. As a result, the point in which the lanyard fails may be closer to the stated Working Load Limit (WLL) than we deem safe. We are not aware of any reports of failings or injuries. However, at the time, we recommended you stop using these products, while we investigated this issue.

Unfortunately, this investigation is still ongoing and has taken much longer that we would have liked.

We appreciate the delay is not our customers fault and this is not the service we like to offer. As a result, we’re offering and recommending a free exchange/upgrade to the new Dirty Rigger Interchangeable Lanyard V2.0.

Please return your Lanyards and any additional accessory loops to the below address, or your original place or purchase. Alternatively, they can be exchanged at many of the major shows and exhibitions that Dirty Rigger are exhibiting at in 2024. Keep an eye on our website and social media for more information on where we’ll be this year.

Return address:

Dirty Rigger Safety Team
Le Mark Group Building
Unit 1 Houghton Hill Industries
Sawtry Way
PE28 2DH

Please include a return address and the reference DR-LYD-FB-563 with your package.

We apologise for any inconvenience. Again, your safety, and the safety of those around you, is our absolute priority.

For more information, please contact us on the below details.


For the avoidance of doubt, the current advice is still not to use the Dirty Rigger Interchangeable Lanyard or the Dirty Rigger Podger Lanyard and to return them. If you are a distributor viewing this notice, please contact your account manager promptly.
