The wrist lanyard systems can safely handle tools up to 5 pounds.

Gear Keeper’s two wrist lanyard systems can safely handle tools up to 5 pounds. Productivity is increased by the company’s patented Quick Connect tool attachment connecting devices that permit connection/disconnection of tools. Users can change out and use many tools with one lanyard by fitting additional male connectors to all tools being used and merely unclick one tool and attach another.  

The wrist lanyards are valuable when the task involves climbing or working at heights or when a short drop distance is required. Unlike standard wrist lanyards, the Gear Keeper tethering systems insures at-heights safety. 

The two Gear Keeper wrist lanyard systems are models TL1-2007 and TL1-2008 Retractable Wrist Lanyards. Both models offer nylon webbing Velcro wrist attachment straps. They are available in safety orange with serial numbers to satisfy traceability standards. Both models also offer additional lanyard attachments for multiple tool use. 

The TL1-2007 Deluxe Wrist Lanyard has a side release disconnect barrel lock offering 10-inch extended length. The wrist lanyard comes complete with model #ACO-0206, Barrel Lock Nylon lanyard connector. The TL1-2008 Deluxe Wrist Lanyard, which also has a 10-inch extended length comes with the model #ACO-0207 Stainless Steel Snap Lanyard connector.

Gear Keeper Offers Tool Tethering Solutions

Literature from Gear Keeper offers convenient tethering solutions that will safely secure an “untetherable” tool while still retaining the benefit of extending and retracting the tool as needed. Within the company’s free 16-page Safety Engineer’s Guide to Tool Tethering is a multi-page section, “How to attach lanyards to tools that don’t have attachment points,” which contains more than 50 demonstration photos. The section covers tethering commonly used tools, such as hammers and other tools that lack the necessary geometry or don’t have built-in attachment points required for tethering. Workplace considerations, such as tethers designed to anchor a heavy tool to a structure, and common workplace objects, such as hard hats, cell phones and more, are covered in the guide.
