Default Safety lanyard

I like to wear my lanyard but I hate the cheezy connection to my wrist. I would like to buy a better quality wristband to connect the lanyard to. Can anyone tell me where to find a good one?

We have these and everyone seems to really like them:

I attach mine around my ankle- it stays out of the way of the steering and throttle controls, and doesnt bother me at all. Little easier to forget its there and walk away with it still on though!

We have tried to persuade manufacturers to employ basic human factors engineering (HFE) and install the switch directly under the throttle so the lanyard does not become entangled in the wheel.

By doing this the wrist band becomes the brain link to the lanyard and the operator is naturally reminded to wear it.

I have a carbiner attached to mine. I attach that to my pants or life vest. This way it's not in the way of the wheel or controls.

I ordered this pwc lanyard from Overtons and cut off plastic keys. Didn't like the wrist band (kept getting wrapped around the wheel) so I just use the clip and hook it too a belt loop or drawstring on my swim suit. Works great, matches the boat, and looks 100 times better than the crappy red one that came with it.

Here's what I use. All Jet Ski stuff from Overtons. When I'm wearing my Lifeline I unclip the wrist band and snap it on the D ring.
