Retractable Tool Tether Offers Full Range of Motion

Retractable Tool Tether

Gear Keeper's new RT3-5601 retractable tether, for tools up to 2 pounds, is valuable when working in close quarters or climbing. Available in high-visibility orange, the retractable tether's low profile keeps tools close to the body when stored-while 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.

Like other retractables in the Gear Keeper line, the RT3-5601 is engineered so 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 RT3-5601 tether extends up to 42 inches and, to reduce arm strain, the tether features a ratcheted thumb-controlled device to lock the cable at any extension length. In addition, the dual-axis rotation clamp-on clip easily attaches to a tool belt or fall protection harness.
