safety equipment Ergodyne

Safety equipment: Ergodyne has announced a new addition to its Squids® Lanyards Line. Now, workers can choose a Tool Tethering Kit to take with them for work at heights and know they’ve got exactly what they need.

Too often, workers are left guessing which safety solution will most effectively prevent dropped objects. But that’s a dangerous game to play when lives are at stake. These kits were created to give more convenient and confident at-heights safety.

“These kits provide workers with a complete tethering system,” said Nate Bohmbach, senior product manager. “Workers can simply grab one and feel confident that they have everything they need to tether their tools safely and effectively.”

Each of the six kits comes complete with two to three Squids® products (full details below in “Key Features”). Depending on the weight of their tools, workers can choose from the following new Squids® Tool Tethering Kits:

• 3180 2lb (0.9kg) Tool Tethering Kit (for up to six 2lb (0.9kg) tools)
• 3181 5lb (2.3kg) Tool Tethering Kit (for up to four 5lb (2.3kg) tools)
• 3182 10lb (4.5kg) Tool Tethering Kit (for up to three 10lb (4.5kg) tools)
• 3190 Tape Measure Tethering Kit (for one standard tape measure)
• 3191 Power Tool Tethering Kit (for one standard cordless power tool)
• 3192 Wrist Lanyard Tethering Kit (for up to four 3lb (1.4kg) tools)

“Tool tethering doesn’t have to be complicated,” said Tom Votel, CEO and president of Ergodyne. “And with these new straightforward kits, it won’t be.”

Ideal for workers at heights in industries ranging from construction and telecommunications to oil & gas, manufacturing, and more, the Squids® Tool Tethering Kits are available NOW at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
