ST. PAUL, Minn. — Ergodyne has announced an addition to its line of pioneering one-step attachment points meant to simplify the challenging process of tethering power tools, hand tools and instrumentation.
Squids Hand Tool Slips provide a simple solution for smaller hand tools such as screwdrivers and hex (Allen) wrenches. These small tools have always had their own unique set of tool tethering challenges, as have power tools and instrumentation like cell phones.
The patent-pending design and functionality of Slips include a durable ABS plastic encasing a soft friction-fit star that holds a membrane. The user slides the tool through this membrane to create a secure attachment point for tethering. The single piece design also features an attachment ring (where the worker connects the tool lanyard) that swivels around the tool eliminating tangling from the user rotating tool.
Squids Hand Tool Slips have been have been stringently tested in numerous conditions and allow workers to tether tools up to one pound based on their diameter. Four sizes of Slips are compatible on tools with diameters ranging from 0.05-inch (1.3mm) to ½-inch (12.5mm).
