Safety products: Ergodyne has announced the expansion of their Squids® Tool Lanyard Line to include the Squids® 3130 Coiled Cable Lanyard available in both small and medium sizes. By utilizing a compact system that keeps the length of the lanyard close to the anchoring point, the new coiled lanyard reduce snags, trip hazards, and ensures the utmost in at heights safety.

"These new lanyards provide the user with a compact and worry-free tethering solution," said Nate Bohmbach, Ergodyne product manager and DROPS member. "Workers in confined spaces will now have the benefit of a full-length lanyard without any of the dangerous and annoying hazards."

One of the many features of the coil design is the ability to reduce the length of the lanyard.

The carabiner also boasts a screw gate for a safe and easy locking connection.

Ideal for those working at heights and especially those in tight areas where snag hazard is a concern, the Squids® 3130S and Squids® 3130M Coiled Cable Lanyards are available now at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
