Wrist Tool Lanyard (D Ring & Elastic) Buckle Fastening


The (D Ring & Elastic) buckle fastening wrist tool lanyard is made by Leading Edge in the UK.
Uniquely developed to combine the benefits of a wrist lanyard (permits easy tool pick-up, ideally suited for single tool repetitive use) and advantages of an elasticated lanyard (reduces tripping, snagging hazards and lowers impact force from dropped tool loading) without the need for additional belts, belt loops, holsters and lanyards etc.
The design incorporates a special feature in only requiring the use of one hand to self-fit and adjust. All Leading Edge wrist lanyards have a unique safety release expansion joint, preventing de-gloving in an accident.
The design makes it possible for the wrist strap to come free in an emergency releasing the hand from becoming drawn into potential hazards should their tool/lanyard become caught up, as an example in rotating machinery.
The expansion joint is available in two options i.e. full expansion and a half expansion joint.
