The RT3-5601 retractable tether, for tools up to two pounds, is valuable when working in close quarters or climbing. Available in high-visibility orange, the retractable tether’s ultra low profile keeps tools close to the body when stored while still allowing complete accessibility in all directions when in use. The tether’s patented side-release clip improves productivity while maintaining drop safety by providing a method for easily exchanging one tool for another.
The RT3-5601 has a balanced recoil and retraction force. When the retractable tether is extended for use, only minimal force is necessary thereby avoiding worker fatigue or in the reverse, causing a ”kick” when the tool retracts. According to John Salentine, VP of Hammerhead Industries, “A properly tethered tool or instrument makes work more efficient and simplifies e repair, maintenance or manufacturing project.
RT3-5601 retractable tool lanyards including the dual-axis belt clip retail for $34.99 per unit. A free, four-page tool tether brochure containing the tethering guide and related information is available by calling Hammerhead Industries’ Customer Service at 888.588.9981.
