A Catcher In The Concrete

by Don Friedman on April 29, 2017


During window replacement in my apartment, the gadget above was used to provide an anchor point for safety lines for the workers leaning out the unguarded window opening during removal and installation. The piece of wall to the left (behind the fridge) and right are parts of an internal concrete shear wall and provide solid anchorage; the steel bar with feet lying on the floor bears horizontally on the wall without attachment to the wall or floor.

Pretty clever.
