Retractable TetherThe Gear Keeper© RT3-5601 retractable tether, designed for tools up to 2 pounds, is useful when working in close quarters or climbing, the company said. Available in high-visibility orange, the retractable tether’s ultra-low profile keeps tools close to the body when stored while still allowing complete accessibility in all directions when in use. The tether’s patented side-release clip improves productivity while maintaining drop safety by providing a method for easily exchanging one tool for another. It is engineered so that the tool, application, and recoil/retraction force are in balance. When the RT3-5601 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. The tether extends up to 42 inches. To reduce arm strain, the tether features a ratcheted thumb-controlled device to lock the cable at any extension length. The dual-axis rotation clamp-on clip attaches easily to a tool belt or fall protection harness.
