I've just returned home from another great expo at ASSP, American Society of Safety Professionals. All of us on the ISEA Committee were pleased to see so much enthusiasm around dropped object prevention this year.
While I was there, many professionals shared with me their dropped object stories and why they were looking for tool tethering solutions. I've selected 3 stories that really spoke to me and have captured them below.
We just got back from the National Hardware Show 2018 in Las Vegas. One afternoon, a Las Vegas PD officer came by our booth to tell us a little story. On his duty belt was an original number 5 retractor that his father had passed down to him some years ago. While it still worked, it was pretty old and he was wondering what new products we had that were more modern and designed for tactical use.
After getting a look at the markings on the back we found it was made between 1965 and 1970. That means it had been in use for around 50 years and was still working! So if you are looking for products that last and last and last, remember you can’t beat the original retractor manufacturer. KEY-BAK Pro uses American ingenuity to help working people live more productive lives for decades to come and we apply the same standards for quality to every product we make.
