St. Paul, Minn. (March 2, 2017) – Ergodyne continued the fast-paced innovation in its Squids® Tool Tethering Line today by introducing five more ground-breaking tool lanyards. This expanded line of F(x) lanyards offers a variety of lighter, low-profile lanyards with shock-absorbing properties and patent-pending carabiner designs.
“These lanyards weigh less, absorb more shock, and are easier to use – all for less than today’s equivalent competitive products,” said Nate Bohmbach, associate product director. “There’s everything a worker could want in nine variations.”
Ergodyne’s shock-absorbing tool lanyards are designed and tested to prevent falling objects and reduce the force exerted on the body if a drop occurs by absorbing the energy transmitted through the tool lanyard. By reducing the shock load, the lanyards prevent the tool from pulling the user down with it – protecting those above and below.
Now, customers have a full range of tool lanyard options (nine styles) made with shock-absorbing webbing to absorb up to five times the shock of its competitors. Plus, ergonomically designed nylon composite and swiveling aluminum designs add to the patent-pending, first-class carabiners. The locking double-action composite carabiners are the first of their kind in the industry and 25% lighter than the competition’s.
“If poorly constructed, even safety solutions can become part of the problem,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. “This one of a kind lineup of tool lanyards in the Squids® Line are safety solutions, not safety hazards.”
