Tethering tool system


The KNIPEX tethering tool system is designed to keep the ANSI-compliant lanyard secured to the carabiner and includes a self-locking gate to prevent any unintentional opening. The ANSI-compliant adapter straps offer multiple ways to attach to workers, including from a belt, wrist or harness. The tether attachment is welded onto the multi-grip handles for stable mounting and can hold a maximum tool load of 3.3 pounds. The lanyards are made of gathered fabric that expands to 5 feet when under strain.
