Retractable tether


The RT3-5605 heavy-tool retractable tether is designed for tools up to 3.5 pounds. When a tool is retracted, lanyard exposure is minimized to avoid snagging. The tether has a reach that extends 55 inches, and comes with impact-absorbing spectra/nylon webbing. The RT3-5605 features a thumb-controlled gear lock that secures the lanyard at any length to reduce arm strain when working with heavier tools.
