Product InnovationsErgodyne announced today the expansion of their Squids® Tool Lanyard Line to include two new coil hard hat lanyards: Squids® 3157 Coil Hard Hat Lanyard with Buckle and Squids® 3158 Coil Hard Hat Lanyard with Clamp. These coil lanyards easily secure a hard hat to a worker, preventing the hard hat from falling at heights, while the coil design reduces lanyard length - preventing snag and tangle hazards.

"Our new coil hard hat lanyards provide the user with a compact and worry-free tethering solution," said Nate Bohmbach, Ergodyne product manager and Dropped Objects Prevention Scheme (DROPS) member. "Workers at heights should be able to comfortably secure a hard hat to their shirt or fall protection harness, and our new Squids® Coil Hard Hat Lanyards allow them to do this."

One of the many features of the coil design is the ability to reduce lanyard length. This not only prevents snag and tangle hazards, it also keeps the lanyard away from a worker's face--providing increased safety, comfort, and productivity. The Squids® 3158 utilizes an easy release clamp that securely attaches to just about anything while the 3157 houses a double lock plastic buckle making it the only coil hard hat lanyard with a buckle connection point specifically designed to connect to fall protection harnesses.

"Squids® Hard Hat Lanyards increase worker safety across a number of industries" said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. "Simply put, these lanyards keep hard hats where they're supposed to be: off the ground and on your head."

Ideal for those working at heights and in industries needing head protection, the Squids® 3157 Coil Hard Hat Lanyard with Buckle and Squids® 3158 Coil Hard Hat Lanyard with Clamp are available NOW at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
