Squids Grabbers

St. Paul, Minn. (May 27, 2015) – Ergodyne announced today the addition of two patented products to the Squids® Line of Worksite Organizers – the Squids® 3400MD Metal Detectable Grabber (Dual Clip) and Squids® 3405MD Metal Detectable Grabber (Belt Clip). Boasting the tried and true features of the beloved originals (3400 and 3405), the new Grabbers keep gloves, rags, keys, and whatever else workers need nearby – with the added ability to signal metal detectors in manufacturing and food processing plants, preventing them from becoming harmful foreign objects.

“When word got out that our Grabbers were perfect for workers in food processing plants but needed to be detectable – we innovated and delivered,” said Nate Bohmbach, senior product manager, Ergodyne.

The Squids® 3400MD and 3405MD Metal Detectable Grabbers has a patented construction using stainless steel metallic powder throughout the entire makeup of the product. Workers and supervisors can be confident that even if the smallest piece of the grabber breaks off, it will still be detected.

“Food processing plant workers need tools and gear like every other worker, but they’ve got some significant stipulations” said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. “We’re excited to deliver our Metal Detectable Grabbers as a solid solution for an important, unique need within this industry.”

Ideal for those working in areas where FOD and FME are a concern, the new Squids® 3400MD and 3405MD Metal Detectable Grabbers are available NOW at all authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information on where to buy, visit, email or call 800-225-8238 // (651) 642-9889.
