It doesn't matter how careful you think you are, it only takes one butterfinger moment for your power drill to fall 40 feet onto your groundie's head. This is why Petzl has come up with their dropped tool prevention system for at-height workers. Consisting of the Petzl Interfast, Petzl Toolbag, Petzl Tooleash, and Petzl Toolinks, this system allows you to store and use your bracing and cabling tools safely while reducing the space it occupies on your saddle.
Hi I'm Nick Bonner for treestuff.com did you know that the ANSI requires you to tether your tools when you use them Aloft and that this doesn't just apply to chainsaws do you find yourself cabling or installing lightning protection you should have your tools tethered luckily here at petzl from their amazing Distribution Center we're going to talk to you about some of these tool tethering options this is kind of all part of an integrated system however you could feel to mix and match these components probably but I'll walk you through the whole thing this is the tool leash it's kind of like a chainsaw lanyard but it's not for a chainsaw it's very clearly labeled that has a max of five kilograms and this is designed to interface directly with the rest of the line of the tool links also offered by petzl when you have one of your tools say you're using a wrench what you're going to do is girth hitch this around here pretty simply and then petzl has included this Nifty little rubber keeper it's going to cinch down on top of the girth hitch and prevent the growth hitch from loosening as the tool Jingles so you would have your tool leash connected to your harness and then you would pull this out of your tool bag
and connect it to make sure that it's tethered while you were Aloft when we think about what bag we're going to carry it in the pencil tool bags come in three different sizes you've got your six liter your three liter and your 1.5 liter these are all really nice PVC free good for the environment bags they're durable and simple bucket Styles a neat feature of these is that they have this little d-ring here and that's going to connect to the new petal interfast the petzl interfast has a adapter right here you'll simply unscrew this Phillips head screwdriver and it's going to pop open and this will Connect into any slot on your harness that accepts a kerra tool or similar device so once you have this on your harness you simply take your tool bag and you can slip it in here and it clicks right in and it can't come out if you go upside down you know the bag could potentially spill the tools but the bag's not going to release from your harness another advantage of this is that when you have this on your tarnis it's going to hold the tool bag up higher on your waist which makes it a lot more accessible another great feature about these bags is that they feature the one-handed adjustment so you simply pull on them with one hand and that's going to open them up and also with the inner Fast Direct the tool leash can be girth hitch directly underneath and that keeps all of your tool holding devices in one neat simple column on your harness
that's going to keep everything really neat when you want to remove the tool you simply press this button and lift it right out this is a really neat system it was obviously all really well thought out by the team at petzl to work well together and help make you and your Crews safer when you're carrying tools for various jobs Aloft check all this stuff out at treestuff.com you can check it out at pencil.com if you want to but they're just going to tell you to buy it from us anyways thanks for watching I'm Nick Bonner from treesuff.com
