Six new ANSI 121-Compliant Gear Keeper® retractable tethers increase convenience and productivity while keeping tools safe and out of the way away but always easily accessible.

Current compliance challenges often require that all tools must be tethered when working at heights. Of course this would also include smaller tools such as screwdrivers, pliers, radios, smart phones and tablets. To avoid the obvious dangers of technicians being “over-tethered,” with numerous dangling cables hanging from tool belts, Gear Keeper’s Vest-Mounted tethering products offer a solution.

The new ANSI 121-Compliant Vest-Mounted Retractable Tethers combine convenience and productivity with safe tool tethering. Hands-free and tucked away in a pocket, a technician’s vest can safely hold and secure many small hand tools and equipment. This low-profile Gear Keeper family of six retractable tethers is far less obtrusive and cumbersome than using bulky coils and cables. Mounted in a vest pocket, the retractable cables keep valuable small gear safe and out of the way but always remain easily available for use.

All of the new Vest-Mounted retractable tethers are easily attached by sturdy threaded mounts which can be installed in vests, coveralls and any other clothing that has structure (not mesh). Cost range for individual tethers range from $18 to $30 per unit with 10-packs available at discounted pricing. Included in the new Vest-Mounted family of retractable tethers are the following products:

RT5-5602 Retractable Hard Hat Tether – $18.50 (10 pack $17.00 each);

RT5-5420 Retractable Smart Phone Tether – $20.00 (10 pack $18.50 each)
