The Gear Keeper® RT3-5605 retractable tether minimizes user fatigue and dangling tool entanglement.

Gear Keeper’s new ANSI-121 compliant, heavy-tool retractable tether’s low profile keeps tools weighing up to 3.5 lbs. close to the body when retracted while still allowing complete accessibility when needed. Workers do not have to dance around a long, dangling tether or drag their tool on the floor. This is particularly important when working in close quarters or climbing where a dangling tool can cause a serious tripping or falling accident

Engineered with user-ergonomics and safety in mind, the RT3-5605 personal tool tether maximizes productivity. The retractor mechanism’s low 7 oz. tension of the lanyard lets you use your tool like it wasn’t even attached to a tether.  Safely avoiding interference with the work being performed, the tension still remains strong enough to keep the tether’s line taut and out of the way. Also, when the tool is retracted, lanyard exposure is minimized to avoid snagging, especially when the tool is also placed in a tool bag/pouch.

Designed to never impact use, the RT3-5605 heavy-tool tether has a generous reach extending more than 4.5 feet. The tether’s durable, impact-absorbing nylon webbing does not require an additional shock-absorbing lanyard end. Tools are attached via a stainless steel, thumb-controlled, locking-gate carabiner.
