Abstract : This patent is for a ship deck lifeline which has an insulator fiting interposed between the metal cable and the metal end stanchion. The lifeline cable is insulated from the metal ship deck thereby reducing electrical interference with the ship's electronic instrumentation. The insulator fitting is designed to be easily retrofit to existing lifelines.
