Tethered Tools

Tethered Tools


The next generation of safety technology for positive control of hand tools at height, in work areas requiring foreign material exclusion (FME) or anywhere simple accidents become costly mistakes. Since a better tether system is a safer tether system, SkyHook™ provides secure tool transfers, a free range of motion, and positive tool control at the worksite. 

The SkyHook™ Tether & Transfer System is comprised of switches, docks, lanyards and carabiners, all designed to make tool control as complete as possible with little interference to tool function. 

The SkyHook™ System allows you to:

  • MAINTAIN POSITIVE CONTROL during tool transfers. Whether hand-to-hand, person-to-person or person-to-station, the mechanism inside the innovative SkyHook™ keeps the tool completely secure at every point during the transfer.
  • GAIN FREEDOM OF MOTION to use tools correctly with a SkyDock™ attached to the wrist. The short lanyard is light, tight and less likely to get caught on nearby equipment or snags than traditional lanyards.
  • GET ACCOUNTABILITY through Positive Control. A tool attached to a SkyDock™ is either attached to a hand, a belt, a tool apron, a co-worker, a work truck or a central station. At all points, tools attached to SkyDock™ can be accounted for from truck to site and back. No tool is left behind.
