Ergodyne introduces triple-locking carabiner tool lanyards

Ergodyne Squids LanyardsErgodyne announced today the expansion of their Squids® Lanyard Series to include the new Squids® 3109 Triple-Locking Single Carabiner Tool Lanyard and the Squids® 3119 Triple-Locking Dual Carabiner Tool Lanyard (both available in standard or extended lengths). While each lanyard has its own unique benefits and features, their triple-locking feature provides a dependable solution for preventing injury, damage and lost productivity due to dropped tools.

The 360 degree swivel allows workers to screw, twist and maneuver the lanyard without becoming a tangled and tethered mess. Tagged with Ergodyne’s stamp of security and tenacity, the lanyards offer 15 lbs. and 20 lbs. capacities, providing safe tethering for heavier tools. Additionally, the self-locking connectors ensure safe connections and reduce the chance of an inadvertent disconnection. 

“The main differentiator of these new lanyards is the heavy-duty, triple-locking carabiner which provides a safe and secure connection” said Nate Bohmbach, product manager, Ergodyne. “It’s the first of its kind in the tool tethering

​Dropped objects are a serious concern that can put a workforce at risk and result in lost productivity. Whether in the worker’s hand or idle on the work surface, a dangerous dropped object situation can happen without notice. The result can range from inconvenience/loss of productivity to life-altering injury or death.

“The new triple-locking lanyards add to Ergodyne’s already robust line of dropped object solutions,” said Tom Votel, President and CEO of Ergodyne. “As a leader in objects at heights product offerings, we also are aggressively offering educational and training programs in this growing and critical category.”

​Ideal for any worker with exposure to heights and a need for tethering tools, the Squids® Triple-Locking Carabiners will be showcased at the 2012 ASSE show in Denver (June 3-6) and are available June 4, 2012 at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
