Ventura, Calif.-based Hammerhead Industries Inc., a manufacturer of safety tethering equipment, has launched a new line of Gear Keeper general purpose retractors, suited for markets such as wind power, construction and utilities.

Offering a range of three retraction forces and four mounting options that solve small-tool tethering needs, the new industrial-strength Gear Keeper family safely of retractors secures lightweight objects when workers are at heights.

Intended to match retraction force to the weight of the tool being used, the new model RT4-00XX series of general purpose retractors is offered in retraction forces of 3 oz., 6 oz. and 9 oz. In addition, all come with Gear Keeper’s patented quick connect/release system.

The devices provide lanyard extensions up to 36 inches and are available with a snap mount, threaded stud mount, aluminum carabiner or Velcro strap mounting device. The new line ranges in price from $19.99 to $21.99.
