Ergodyne has introduced the next-generation of its innovative shock-absorbing tool lanyards. The newest Squids products prevent struck-by object incidents below while protecting those tethering above.
The new additions to the product line include:
- 3100F(x) Tool Lanyard Single Carabiner
- 3110F(x) Tool Lanyard Dual Carabiner
- 3108F(x) Tool Lanyard Single Locking Carabiner
- 3118F(x) Tool Lanyard Dual Locking Carabiner
“Ergodyne’s new, innovative Squids Lanyards represent our thought leadership in the tool tethering category,” said Nate Bohmbach, Senior Product Manager at Ergodyne. “While most companies treat these products as mere accessories to fall protection or tools, Ergodyne prioritizes lanyards as we continue to revolutionize drop prevention safety.”
If a tool is anchored to a worker’s body, a drop force can easily throw that person off-balance or drag them down from heights. Consider that a 5-lb tool (2.25 kg) tool dropped just 5 feet (1.5m) can generate over 200 lbs (91 kg) of force on many competitive tool lanyards and homemade tethering systems.
Made with a unique lightweight and low-profile polyester blend webbing that extends and retracts, Ergodyne’s new Squids Lanyards help prevent snag hazards and reduce additional weight on a climber. Shock-absorbing material blended into the webbing of these lanyards reduces the force a worker feels five times more than most competitive lanyards.
Additionally, the patent-pending aluminum carabiners are ergonomically designed to work well with gloved hands, and can be exchanged safely and conveniently if necessary. Tacky tool treads were woven into the lanyard loops to provide extra grip onto tools when attached.
“We’ve been leading the charge to raise awareness, implement industry standards, and introduce safety solutions for dropped objects,” said Tom Votel, President and CEO, Ergodyne. “It’s not a new safety hazard, but it affects many industries and its impact can be costly.”
