Lifesaving Systems Corp. is pleased to announce that our TRITON Rescue Harness has received FAA Approval under TSO C167 – Personnel Carrying Device Systems (PCDS). This approval comes after significant independent laboratory testing and review by the FAA. As more and more sea rescue operations move to contracted services, the requests for regulatory approval likewise increased and LSC responded.


Only TRITONS manufactured after the approval date are allowed to carry the TSO C167 designation and we expect the first production run to be complete and shipping in September.

About the TRITON

The TRITON is LSC’s second generation helicopter hoistable rescue harness with dual recovery capability. It is standard equipment for the USCG Aviation Rescue Swimmers and Canadian SAR Techs. Building on the foundation and comfort of the TRI-SAR, the TRITON offers numerous enhancements. Several equipment pockets improve improved weight distribution and comfort. Quick release buckles on the leg straps allow for easier donning and doffing of the harness, and a chest strap allows for better fit adjustment.The available integrating low profile flotation vest provides variable buoyancy up to 35 lbs with reduced drag when in the water. (Note: The TRITON Vest holds no FAA Approval) The recovery hook is an LSC Talon II safety hook with swivel and locking gate. All components and materials are corrosion resistant stainless steel or Titanium for the marine environment.
