Using Tool Lanyards

It’s good practice to use lanyards whenever possible in FME work. In high rise situations, having tools and equipment tied off will prevent dropped items and provide that much needed extra level of workplace safety. In other fields, lanyards prevent the loss of equipment into areas where they would otherwise be hard to retrieve, or could cause damage to expensive equipment. Turbine and engine manufacturing/repair are examples of work where lanyard use could prevent an expensive mistake.

Hard Hat Lanyards

If a hard hat falls off your head, it won’t fall to the ground. These helmet lanyards eliminate the need for uncomfortable chin straps.

Attachment and Connector System

When many tools are required for a job, a system of easily interchangeable connections is needed. Tether connection and attachment kits allow for easy switching between tools.

Retractable Lanyards

Tools that are held in belts can have retractable lanyards attached to them for ease of use. Hammers, scaffold wrenches, levels, and tape measures are just a few items that can be made retractable.


These cheaper, simple design lanyards provide a cost effective way of tethering tools.


Standard-duty lanyards provide a comfortable easy to use design that can handle a wide range of tools.


Heavy-duty lanyards secure heavier tools to prevent potential injury.

Tool Buckets and Belts

Drop prevention buckets and belts provide quick connections so the products stored in them do not have the ability to fall out.

Lanyard Ready Tool Kit

To save time, some kits are pre-prepared with tether accepting connections.

No matter what equipment is being used for a job, there is likely an easy way, and a perfect product to make that equipment drop safe.
