Gear Keeper’s new ANSI-121 compliant Deluxe TL1-2007 side-release wrist lanyard system for tools up to five pounds is ideal for use when a short drop length is critical, such as when climbing or working in close quarters. Unlike an “off-the-shelf” lanyard, which can actually become a safety hazard, all Gear Keeper tethering systems are backed by the company’s stringent quality control systems and an ANSI-121 safety standard.
The product’s quality assurance includes the company’s dynamic and static testing, drop-load testing (with up to a 100% safety margin), and cycle testing for safe use and a long life.
The economical TL1-2007 is attached to the wrist by a loop and cinch Velcro strap, and connected to the tool by 10″ lanyard with a barrel lock. The use of Gear Keeper’s patented Quick Connect tool attachment connectors permit secure, fast, and easy connection and disconnection of tools — which means there’s zero wasted time when working with a variety of different tools.
Users can also quickly change out many tools with extra lanyards attached to the tools –simply un-click one tool and click in another. Additional lanyards are inexpensive and are available in 3 and 10 packs.
The full line of Gear Keeper ANSI-compliant tethers and accessories are available on the company’s website. A free, 16-page, 2019 edition of the “Safety Engineer’s Guide to Tool Tethering” is available by logging onto gearkeeper.com/guide. The new Guide also includes a four-page section, which shows how to easily and safely tether tools with and without attachment points as well as related product information.
