Safety products: For utility safety, Ergodyne has announced the expansion of their Squids® Tool Lanyard Line to include the Squids® 3104 Detachable Dual Loop Lanyard. By eliminating the use of metal, this new tool lanyard is nonconductive and non-marring - perfect for electrical applications - while still offering maximum durability with a dual loop, interchangeable design.

"When removing metal from a lanyard design, most tool lanyard manufacturers sacrifice durability or weight capacity in their connectors," said Nate Bohmbach, product manager. "Our new 3104 Detachable Dual Loop Lanyard is tested using a 2 to 1 safety factor and sacrifices nothing when it comes to performance and protection."

All Squids® Tool Lanyards are designed with grit and efficiency in mind. Staying true to this notion, the 3104 model features a stretch cord and quick connecting buckle for easy exchange of multiple tools. By eliminating metal within the connector, workers in sensitive surface applications will feel confident knowing their tool lanyard is a non-marring, scratch free option on the job. Without sacrificing quality or capacity, the dual loop design is also nonconductive and non-sparking ensuring protection in other sensitive applications.

"We are excited to bring a first of its kind tool lanyard to market," said Tom Votel, president and CEO. "Our testers identified a gap, and we were hell-bent on delivering a solid solution."

Ideal for workers in electrical applications or those working on sensitive surfaces, the Squids® 3104 Detachable Dual Loop Lanyard is available now at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.

Key Features:
• Truly non-conductive with dual loop design
• Perfect for scratch and damage sensitive surface work as non-marring option
• Modular quick connecting buckle for exchanging multiple tools
• Maximum safe working capacity: 5 lbs. (2.26 kg)
• Stretch cord surrounded by tubular nylon webbing
