Squids® Slips® are perfect retrofit tool attachments for small hand tools to help reduce the risk of dropped objects and increase workplace safety. Connection points for tool lanyards can be tricky to find, especially on smaller hand tools like screw drivers and hex keys (Allen wrenches).
While working at-heights, it is important to tether tools as part of your overall fall protection plan, but the lack of these connection points can make that difficult.
No additional install tools or complicated wrapping or shrinking! The patented Slips® design requires a simple installation that follows its name. Simply “slip” the tool attachment on to the tool and connect a Squids® Tool Lanyard to complete your tethering system.
Unlike competitors that offer a fitted cap that can cover up information (like on the end of a screwdriver, for example) these solutions leave the end open. The single piece design is easier to install compared to competitors that require two to three pieces to be assembled onto the tool.
Simply puncture the interior membrane of the Tool Slip and slide the attachment to the desired location. The star points of the attachment’s interior will hold its location and the swiveling exterior ring will provide a connection point for tool lanyards.
PERFECT FOR SMALL HAND TOOLS
Small hand tools have always been challenging to connect tool lanyards to. Screw drivers, small combination wrenches, punches, hex (Allen) wrenches and the like do not have captive connection points, and the low-profile designs can make it difficult for tapes, shrinks and tails to be applied.
