Safety products: Self-adhering tape trap

Safety products: Ergodyne announced the addition of a new Squids® Tool Connector: the Squids® 3755 Self-Adhering Tape Trap. Without the use of a heat source or messy adhesives, the 3755 creates a secure connection point for nearly any tool in a matter of seconds (when used with Squids® Web Tails™).

"Creating a secure connection point for tools shouldn't be difficult or time consuming," said Nate Bohmbach, senior product manager at Ergodyne. "The new tape trap requires zero tools for application - workers won't have to use a heat gun or clean up after a messy tool connector with the 3755."

The cut- and puncture-resistant tape is truly no muss, no fuss. Because it fuses to itself, workers can apply it without additional tools and - since it lacks adhesive - remove by simply cutting it with a utility knife. When used with the Squids® Web Tool Tails™ and Squids® Elastic Loop Tool Tails™, the Squids® 3755 Self-Adhering Tape Trap creates a tethering system that will keep your tools secure from start to finish and is third-party tested using a 2:1 safety factor.

"We're leaders in Objects at Heights safety and constantly testing new and efficient tethering solutions,"said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. "Adding a tape that doesn't need a heat source to secure an attachment point is a no brainer."

Ideal for those working at heights or where FME (Foreign Material Exclusion) or FOD (Foreign Object Damage/Debris) are a concern, the Squids® 3755 Self-Adhering Tape Trap is now available at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
