Accidentally dropping or misplacing an expensive hand-held instrument or tool, particularly when working aloft, is a costly and potentially dangerous event that can be avoided. Aside from the inconvenience and lost down time spent retrieving or searching for the dropped object, delicate instruments such as bar-code readers and gas detectors can be damaged beyond repair. Gear Keeper’s RT3 series of instrument and tool lanyards offer exceptional benefits of safety, productivity, and comfort for workers. When the instrument is stored, held or used with a Gear Keeper RT3 retractable tether, the dangers of entanglement, fatigue and annoyance are minimized and worker satisfaction and output are maximized.
The RT3 Gear Keeper instrument tethers are says to operate in even the most volatile environments. The retractable tether mounts securely to the wearer’s belt, providing a low-profile tethering system that avoids snags and snaps back. The teather features a 360° rotating clamp-on belt clip and a dual-axis rotation option with 180° of swing-away from the body.
Gear Keeper’s spring loaded, self-retracting RT3 security system prevents loss or damage of critical gear. If an instrument is dropped, the tether easily absorbs the stress these heavier instruments produce. When the instrument or tool is being used, pull it out… use it and when you’re finished let it go… it automatically retracts back.
The tethers come with a comfortable reach of 42 in.of extension. Its sturdy Nylon/Kevlar cable features 80 lb. break strength for heavy-duty industrial use with maximum breakage strength and durability.
The instrument tethering system can take the punishment many industrial applications demand. The retractable tethers are intended to survive extended salt water and chlorine exposure. They are almost jam-free with a patented flushing system that self clears sand and other debris from the retractor mechanism. With more than one million systems in use, the devices have a failure rate of less than 0.001%. The full line of Gear Keeper instrument tethers and accessories are available on the company’s website.
