Even small tools dropped from above are serious safety hazards. When working at heights, some of the most commonly used tools (such as small screw drivers) are improperly secured and need to be tethered.
A new line of Gear Keeper General Purpose Retractors offers a simple and convenient tethering solution that safely secures a small tool — with the benefit of extending and retracting the item as needed. Just pull it out, use it, and let it go. The tool will automatically and safely retract back to its secure mounting.
With a range of three retraction forces and four mounting options that solve virtually all small tool tethering needs, the new Gear Keeper family of general purpose retracting systems are ideal for safely securing lightweight objects. These General Purpose Retractors are industrial strength devices with an extremely durable Spectra/Nylon lanyard line and are available with a choice of retraction forces and mounting options.
Intended to match retraction force to the weight of the tool they are being used with, the new model RT4-00XX series of General Purpose Retractors are offered in retraction forces of 3 oz., 6 oz. and 9 oz. (and all come with Gear Keeper’s patented Quick Connect/Release system).
The retractable devices provide lanyard extensions up to 36″ for ample reach when extended and can be attached to the user by a choice of four mounting options. Each of the 3 oz., 6 oz. or 9 oz. retractors are available with either a snap mount, threaded stud mount, aluminum carabiner, or Velcro strap mounting device.
