Two New ANSI/ISEA-121 Gear Keeper Retractable Tethers for Tools up to 2 Lbs.

November 16, 2019

Full range of motion with 360° rotating clamp-on belt clips, the two new retractables minimize entanglement issues and maximize safe tool change-out speed with Side Release Lanyard System. 

hammerhead Industries Gear KeeperGear Keeper’s new ANSI/ISEA-121 compatible RT3-5603 and RT3-5604 retractable tethers keep tools (up to two pounds) close to the body. This is particularly effective at minimizing entanglement issues when working in close quarters or climbing. Also, the tether’s patented Side-Release Lanyard Tool Attachment System allows many tools to be used with just one retractor. It provides quick and easy at-heights tool change-out to improve productivity while still maintaining drop safety. Simply attach additional inexpensive male shock-absorbing lanyards to the other tools being used.

The RT3-5603 Combo Mount SS Carabiner allows two methods of attachment; a 360° unique dual-axis rotation clamp-on clip that easily and securely attaches to a tool belt or fall protection harness and has an extended length of 52” or mount with a SS Locking Carabiner with an extended length of 60”. The retractor body also features a ratcheted thumb-controlled device that can lock the cable at any extension length and retails for $39. Quantity discounts are available by contacting the company.

The RT3-5604 model has all the same features as the RT3-5603 except without the carabiner and is attached only by it’s 360° unique dual-axis rotation clamp-on clip and retails for $35. Because of the universal movement of the dual action clip, resistance and line wear are minimized and the life of both tethers is extended. Quantity discounts are available by contacting the company. Additional Side Release Shock Absorbing Lanyards (Model ACO-0205) are available in 3-packs for $14.00 and 10-packs for $45.

About ANSI and ISEA

ANSI is a century-old, private, not-for-profit organization that promotes “voluntary consensus standards.” The purpose of ANSI and the standards they and ISEA put forth is to set a level of quality and safety across an entire industry. The new standard is the first of its kind to address equipment used to tether and/or contain hand tools, components, and other objects from falling from at-heights applications.
