It’s a keeper!
Gear Keeper’s new Retractable Industrial Tool Lanyard is a tool safety device ideal for contractors, electricians, linemen and phone technicians – even for workers observing at the foot of the drop. The Gear Keeper Retractable Industrial Tool Lanyard is engineered specifically to provide reliable, versatile, access to the gear you need at your fingertips when on the job. It can be used for a wide variety of tools such as wrenches, hammers and pliers, the company said. Innovative features of this handy device include a tough Nylon/Spectra line built for high strength and durability as well as a strong stainless steel coil spring mechanism housed inside stainless steel hardware — providing reliable performance for years of rugged abuse on the job. The unit is available in two models — each built specifically to protect a variety of tool weights from a full-range drop. The RT4 model is designed to handle tools up to 16oz. and provide users with minimum retraction force (3 oz.) while allowing the tool to extend a full 36 inches. The RT3 model is ideal for slightly heavier small tools as it can grasp onto tools weighing up to 32 oz., and provides 12 oz. of retraction force while reaching out for up to 42 inches.
