Ergodyne has announced the expansion of its Squids line of tool tethering systems to prevent dropped objects on the job.
Tested to the ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 standard, Squids Coil Tool Lanyards offer workers multi-use versatility, easily attaching to hard hats and other small hand tools with single or dual carabiner options made of lightweight and durable aluminum. The tether’s coiled design stretches from a compact 12 inches to 48 inches to prevent snag and tangle hazards in addition to dropped objects.
“The coiled design makes for a low-profile, compact solution that stays out of the way when the tool’s not in use,” said Brent Velenchenko, senior product specialist, Ergodyne. “It’s a popular choice for hard hats, but that’s hardly the limit… They’re also ideal for tools like smaller screwdrivers or hex wrenches.”
Three new tool tethering kits provide workers with everything they need to tether screwdrivers, hex keys, pliers, combination wrenches, mobile devices and power grinders. The 3194 Hand Tool Tethering Kit and the 3195 Cell Phone Tool Tethering Kit feature the new 3156 Coil Tool Lanyard in addition to other ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 compliant components to take the guesswork out the sometimes-confusing task of tethering small hand tools, mobile devices and other implements workers are taking to heights.
