Knipex: Tethered Tools

The new ANSI-compliant tethering system and 1000V insulated tools include one ANSI-related lanyard, two adapter straps and seven 1000V insulated tools. The tethering system includes a captive eye to keep the ANSI-compliant lanyard (38” in length) secured to the carabiner as well as a self-locking gate to prevent any unintentional opening. The adapter straps (13” in length) offer multiple ways to attach to personnel including from a belt, wrist or harness. The tethered tool system provides effective protection against accidents and damage caused by falling tools. The tether attachment is welded onto the multi-grip handles for stable mounting and can hold a maximum tool load of 3.3 lbs. The lanyards are made of gathered fabric that expands to 5' when under strain.
