Tethered Tools Online
Pro Tool Warehouse (Atlanta, GA) has created a website devoted
to making the selection and purchasing of tethered tools fast,
easy, and efficient. The website, www.protoolsatheight.com,
contains a complete listing of the Williams®, Bahco, and CDI tethered tool system product offerings. The Tools at Height system is
ideally suited for technicians when they are working six feet or
higher off the ground in industries such as aircraft maintenance,
construction, wind, energy, and others. What makes these tethered tools different from competing products is that the tethering device is engineered into each tool’s original design and not
viewed as an afterthought. The advantage this gives to technicians is a tool that has full functionality that doesn’t inhibit use,
but with a drop-prevention system built in.
