When a employee working aloft accidentally drops a trowel a serious work site incident can be set in motion. If the trowel is dropped from just 30 feet, it will hit the ground in less than 2 seconds. Aside from the inconvenience, and lost down time spent retrieving the dropped tool, there is a significant danger of injury and damage to everyone and everything below.
Retractable personal tool tethers offer exceptional benefits of safety, productivity and comfort for workers. When the trowel is stored, held or used with the Gear Keeper model RT4–5602 retractable tool tether, the dangers of entanglement, fatigue and annoyance are minimized and worker satisfaction and output are maximized.
Fulfilling the safety engineer's goal in correct tethering procedures for tools up to two pounds, Gear Keeper retractable tethers are designed so that the tool, application and recoil/retraction force are in balance. When a Gear Keeper retractable tether is extended for use, only minimal force is necessary thereby avoiding worker fatigue or in the reverse, causes a "kick" when the tool is automatically retracted.
