Explanation:
Using a traditional lanyard and connecting the snap hook back onto the lanyard itself is called “choking” the lanyard.
Either the gate on the snap hook can be overloaded, or since the lanyard strength can be reduced greatly when you choke, the lanyard itself can fail. http://simplifiedsafety.com/blog/2013/11/

Verbind verbindingslijnen niet onderling of bevestig een verbindingslijn niet aan zichzelf, tenzij die speciaal voor dat doel is ontwikkeld.
