Tool Lanyards & Tethering
When working with tools while climbing ladders or working at heights off the ground, you never want the tool to get away from you and come falling down. It becomes a dangerous projectile that can cause some serious harm. With Zoro's broad selection of tool lanyards and tethering, you can be sure your hammer, drill, or other tool is safe and secure and stays with you at all times. Tool tethering involves attaching tools to either the person using them or, with heavier tools, to a fixed anchor point. A typical tool tethering system has three parts: the tether point on the tool itself, a tool lanyard, and an anchor point. This preventative control protects the tool from any damage, while also keeping the area around the workplace safe as well. To carry and keep additional tools handy at the job site, tool belts and pouches are a great option, as are tool bags, backpacks and totes.
