New Gear Keeperr Webbing Belt with Factory-Mounted Retractable Lanyard System Offers Full Range Of Motion For Tools

Webbing belt/retractable safety lanyard for tools and instruments from 3 to 68 oz.

Ventura, Calif.  [MAY 1, 2012] – For maximum durability, safety and security, Hammerhead Industries can mount any of their 2-Axis retractable lanyards directly to their webbing belt. The 2-Axis retractor series permits 360° rotation on the belt as well as 180° swing-away from the body for full-range of motion accessibility. In addition, because of the universal movement of the dual action mechanism, resistance and line wear are minimized and the life of the tether is extended.

 Once mounted on the belt, the retractor can be easily moved to different positions but remains impossible to dislodge. Optionally, the retractor/belt combination can be user-converted to a slide on/off unit for any belt while still maintaining the same security that prevents unwanted dislodging.

 Requiring a minimum order of just 50 units, the factory mounted web belt/retractor tethering system is particularly valuable when working in close quarters or climbing. The retractable tether’s ultra low profile keeps tools and instruments close to the body while still allowing complete accessibility in all directions. Maintaining drop safety, the tether’s patented quick-connect side-release clip improves productivity by providing a method for easily exchanging one tool for another.

 Many other options are available including: Retractor forces from 3 to 68 ounces; mounting fixtures include snap clip, rotating clip-on belt, 360° clamp-on clip; and split ring or fixed lanyard end type. Extension length is dependent upon the force selected and ranges from 16 to 42 inches. Like all retractables in the Gear Keeper line, the belt-mounted retractors are engineered so that the tool, application and recoil/retraction force are in balance. When the retractable tether is extended for use, only minimal force is necessary thereby avoiding worker fatigue or in the reverse, causing a ”kick” when the tool is automatically retracted.
