How to Safely Tether Your Pneumatic Tools Using Squids® Power Tool Brackets

 

The Squids® 3798 Power Tool Bracket is a retrofit tool trapping solution that attaches to a variety of pneumatic tool brands and models.

Here's what you'll need to apply the 3798 bracket solution:

  • The tool requiring the attachment
  • The 3798 Bracket Set, which includes the bracket and label
  • A wrench for tightening the pneumatic coupler
  • And Safety Eyewear

Before applying any Squids® Attachment Solution, weigh the tool you're applying the solution to and make sure it does NOT exceed the maximum capacity of that solution. Record the weight in a tool inventory log for future reference.

First, examine the tool to identify the location and size of the coupler screw port. Screw ports on tools should be vacant. NEVER remove a screw that is meant to fasten the tool together. Screw port placement will vary by brand. Look for open coupler screw ports on pneumatic tools.

Next, identify the size of the hose coupler and ensure the 3798 bracket fits over the threads and will not slide off.

Align the label underneath or on top of the Bracket's opening and thread the coupler through the assembly. Attach the coupler to the tool according to the tools user instructions.

Inspect your application and connect a Squids® Tool Lanyard to tether your tool.
