Tool Tether Options
DeWalt® announces Lanyard Ready™ solutions for select corded and cordless tools. DEWALT Lanyard Ready™ integrated solutions offer options to tether select corded and cordless tools to rigid structures on job sites when working at height with a maximum lanyard length of 2m, helping to secure the tool in case it is dropped.
Lanyard Ready™ solutions are currently available pre-installed or by a DeWalt Service Center where attachment points can be installed on select cordless DeWalt drills and impact drivers. The 20V MAX Brushless Hammer Drill/Impact Driver Combo Kit with Lanyard Ready™ Attachment Points (DCK299P2LR) (pictured) is an example of the pre-installed option in which the attachment points are already installed on tools at the time of purchase. Other pre-installed options include select DeWalt corded grinders.
Kitted Lanyard Ready™ cordless tools such as the 20V MAX Brushless Hammer Drill/Impact Driver Combo Kit include an integrated lanyard attachment point on each tool, and each battery contains a securing strap and a multi-stage carabineer that connect the battery to the tool. The included multi-stage carabineer offers a secure hold, yet can be un-hooked from its attachment point to allow for the battery to be charged. Lanyard Ready™ attachment points are features highlighted as part of the DeWalt Perform & Protect™ line of products designed to provide a high level of one or more of the following: control, dust containment or low vibration, without sacrificing performance.
While the range of corded and cordless tools approved for Lanyard Ready™ use is growing, the 20V MAX Brushless Hammer Drill/Impact Driver Combo Kit (DCK299P2LR) became available last month for $429 MSRP. It comes standard with a 3-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
