Self-Tethering: An Alternative to Homemade Tethers
A common issue we see is the use of “homemade tethers”, usually created with rope, tape or key rings. Whilst the intention is good, they are not up to the task required and can lead to accidents.
As an alternative, we have developed our self-tether range as a quick solution for tool tethering. Self-tethers are fitted by the operative, with different designs available to suit different tool types.
Self-Tethering Key Benefits
- Quick and easy to self-assemble
- Low cost tethering solution
- Suitable for tools up to 2.5kg
- Compatible with our fully-certified lanyards and accessories.
Self-tether solutions use different designs to accommodate varying tool shapes. Whether it’s a tape measure, spanner or screwdriver, there is a self-tether solution to match it. We’ve created a series of how-to videos on our YouTube channel to guide you through the process.
