Ergodyne dropped object preventionErgodyne announced today the launch of their newest Arsenal® Tool Storage creation: the Arsenal® Topped Parts Pouch in canvas (5528) and tarpaulin (5538). Featuring a hands-free, self-closing Trap Door™ top, the 5528 and 5538 stores small parts, hardware, and tools inside - preventing these items from plummeting at heights when tipped over while also providing easy and efficient retrieval.

"Our newest topped parts pouch tackles one of the main causes of dropped objects at heights - small parts and hardware that cannot be tethered," said Nate Bohmbach, product manager of Ergodyne and DROPS member. "A worker can now store these items in the 5528 or 5538 without further thought - no zipping, buckling, or string pulling."

Designed with dropped object prevention in mind, the Arsenal® Topped Parts Pouch boasts two exterior nickel-plated D-Rings for easy tool lanyard attachment points along with two additional exterior tool loops. Offered in waterproof tarpaulin material (5538) and 20 oz. water resistant canvas (5528), both house a patented nickel-plated storm drain to stay resilient in the toughest of conditions and environments.

"Workers at heights have a million things to worry about and making sure a bag is open or closed shouldn't be one of them," said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. "Our topped parts pouch is efficient, safe, and easy to use - a pretty nice trifecta."

Ideal for those working at heights, the Arsenal® 5528 and 5538 Topped Parts Pouches are available NOW at all authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information or to find out where to buy, visit or call 800.225.8238 // 651.642.9889.
