Lightweight Pole Climber Kit Designed for Lineworkers' Comfort

Oct. 3, 2023
The new aluminum pole climber kit weighs only 5 lbs. per pair.

The ComfortLite Pole Climber Kit is said to be Buckingham Manufacturing's lightest and most comfortable climber kit. Weighing just 5 lbs. per pair, it is nearly 1 lb. lighter than any existing Buckingham Climber Kits.

The kit is ergonomically designed to relieve pressure points and direct pressure to non-sensitive areas of the leg while climbing. This was accomplished using both a dual layer of compression padding and a lightweight plastic cuff that achieve the ultimate fit for comfort.

Features & Benefits:

  • More than 4 lbs. lighter than the closest competition, according to the company. 
  • The ComfortLite cuff is a one-piece design removing the need for additional components traditionally seen on our kits. 
  • New weighted web-end designed to create grip, rigidity and add weight to the end of cinch strap making it easier and faster to cinch and uncinch pad.  
  • 4-in. wide upper strap with a cinch loop ensures a secure and snug fit.
  • Patented GRiP (Gaff Ridge Position) technology keeps gaff pointed toward the heart of the pole, promoting ease of climbing and a more natural upright position.
  • Hook and Loop cinch Foot Straps (21401C-BL).
  • BuckViz Green Magnetic Gaff Guards (6909M2).
  • Gaff length: 1 ¾ in.
  • 350 lb. user weight capacity. Meets ASTM F887 standard.
