With ever-increasing options for tool tethering inevitably they're going to be imitators to prove the pioneers of tool tethering are still the leaders. We're going to compare our scientifically engineered Squids® Shock-Absorbing Tool Lanyards to a few popular imitators.
We'll use this drop stand and a load cell to measure the peak forces generated by dropping this three and a half pound pipe wrench. The greater the force registered the greater the risk to workers of being pulled down with their drop tool.
First, let's look at the forces generated by competitor lanyard. A generated 46.7 pounds of force.
Next, let's look at the forces generated by competitor b. This lanyard generated 71 pounds of force.
Finally, let's compare those results to the shock-absorbing design of Ergodyne Squids® Tool Lanyards. The Squids® Lanyard only generated a force of 18.1 pounds.
As you can see the choice is clear to protect yourself and those working below you. Accept no substitutes, choose Ergodyne Squids® Tool Lanyards to tether your tools. For more information on Squids® Tool Lanyards and dropped object prevention visit ergo.zone/drops.
