Helivac lanyard for ground drop-off/recovery

The IGUANE lanyard is designed for ground helivac.

Manipulation is easy thanks to the instant identification of the attachment elements by color coding. Lanyard available in two lengths.



  • Designed for helivac at altitude:
    – on the metal frame, a large upper hole for rapid attachment of the helicopter winch
    – adjustable arm allows its length to be adjusted for connecting to the belay station
    – double lower end allows the rescuer and victim to be connected
    – carabiner fixed to the metal frame to attach a litter
  • It allows the drop-off/recovery phases to be secured: if the helicopter needs to suddenly leave its stationary position, the adjustable arm instantly ejects to free the victim, rescuer and the helicopter
  • Easy manipulation:
    – instant identification of the attachment elements, thanks to their color coding
    – very quick and precise length adjustment of the adjustable arm, thanks to the ergonomic shape of the ADJUST rope adjuster
    – facilitated clipping due to connectors held in correct position
  • Lanyard in low-stretch kernmantel rope allows optimal deployment (1)NOTE: Because of the specificity of the LEZARD helivac lanyard, training on how to use the product is mandatory, through Petzl or a certified body.

    (1) The LEZARD helivac lanyard does not have an energy absorber. It should thus only be used if the fall factor is less than 1 (used below the anchor point).

    The LEZARD was developed by Petzl and based on a patent filed by Jean-Louis Rocourt.
