Proto® Tetether-Ready Tools: Safe, Reliable & Built To Last

Designed with Safety in Mind

When designing their tether-ready tools, Stanley Proto® thinks about safety first. All of their tether-ready tools are specifically engineered with the correct attachment holes / points from the beginning. This allows the user to add tethers without compromising the tools strength, finish, or ability to do its job correctly. Along with this added safety feature, all of Proto’s® tether-ready tools are manufactured with high quality metals and precision machining for a tough, durable tool that you can rely on for years to come.

Safety Innovations That Will Save You Money

Proto® Tethered Tool Sockets, Ratchets, and Torque Wenches have new built in safety innovations that can prevent lost sockets and save money. The Positive Control Pin Detent System keeps the socket in place while working or moving about without having to worry about it slipping off, creating a safety hazard. Unlike typical sockets with ball detent systems that only rely on friction, the Positive Control Pin Detent System requires a separate tool (punch pin or hex key) to attach or remove the socket.


TorquePlus™ Sockets Stand Above Conventional Hand Sockets

  • Allows up to 15% more torque to be applied safely to the fastener.
  • Reduces the risk of fastener rounding.
  • Improves the ability to turn worn or rounded fasteners.
TorquePlus™ technology  solves the age old problem of worn, stripped, and stubborn bolts. TorquePlus™ sockets have specially designed rounded points that allow you to grip fasteners tighter and more easily break stubborn fasteners free, when compared to conventional hand sockets. The rounded points on TorquePlus™ sockets allow the socket walls to contact the fastener walls creating a better grip on the flats of the fasteners head, taking the pressure off of the socket and fastener points. Excessive force on these points can cut through the socket wall or lead to fastener rounding. All Proto® hand sockets come standard with the innovative TorquePlus™ design.

Wide Variety of Tether-Ready Tools Available

Stanley Proto® makes a wide variety of tools that can be used in the Oil, Gas, and Petrochemical industries as well as on most job sites. These tools include Sockets, Drive Tools, Wrenches, Striking & Struck Tools, Pliers, Screwdrivers, Hex Keys and much more. All of these tools can be purchased online at

National Safety Month – Tool Drop Prevention

The Importance of Tool Drop Safety

In our last blog post we talked about the importance of Fall Protection and the ABC’s of Fall Safety. By following the ABC’s of Fall Safety you can safely work at heights without the fear of serious injury or even death. The ABC’s of Fall Safety focuses on keeping the user safely anchored while working, but what about the tools and equipment you are working with? Keeping these objects from falling is just as important as keeping yourself from falling. In 2013 out of the 828 worker fatalities in construction, 84 of those came from falling objects. A 4 lb. wrench dropped from 100 ft. will hit the ground with 1,002 lbs. of force per square inch. With that amount of force a person  struck by this object will surely face a life threatening injury if not instantly killed on impact. Along with being a leading cause of workplace injuries and fatalities each year, falling tools and equipment also contribute to additional costs to fix and/or replace damaged tool and equipment, along with causing delays to retrieve these falling objects. By having the correct Tool Drop Protection Equipment you can eliminate these dangers and keep you job site running safely and smoothly.

Impact Force of Dropped Objects

Python Safety –  The Leader in Tool Drop Prevention Products

Python Safety has been developing the perfect products for preventing dropped tools and equipment for over a decade now. Python’s innovative line of tool drop prevention products has made it the gold standard when it comes to drop prevention. Python’s drop prevention products will make any work environment safer and more productive, it will also help protect workers from hazards such as: personal injury, equipment damage, and tool loss. All of Python Safety’s products have been third-party tested by Applied Technical Services (ATS), an Atlantic-based consulting engineering firm. ATS is ISO 9001 Certified and an accredited testing lab of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. ATS performs static and dynamic load tests to determine the safe working loads based on the products intended use. Here at Tanner we carry the full line of Python Safety Tool Drop Protection Products.


Python Safety Tool Drop Protection products can be broken down into 7 major categories:Python Third Party Tested ATS


Python Attachment Points allow the user to make any tool tetherable in a matter of moments without having to deface or modify the tool. Attachment Points include: D-Rings, Tool Cinches, Quick Wrap Tape, Heat Shrink Links, Quick Rings, and Quick Spins. Once your tool has a safe and reliable Attachment Point it is time to pick out a Lanyard or Tether to keep your tool secure and to avoid any possible dropping hazards. Tool Drop Lanyards & Tethers come in three different styles: Webbing, Bungee, and Coil. A great tether that can be used for most hand tools is the EXT-H2LBUNGEE – A 31″ Hook2Loop Bungee Tether that can stretch to 47″ and safely handle tools up to 10 lbs. Python Tool Belts were designed with tool drop prevention in mind. Each Tool Belt is compatible with Python Belt Attachment Points as well as Lanyards & Tethers, Holsters, and Pouches; truly making them fully customizable for your specific needs.

 Attachment Points - Lanyards & Tethers - Tool Belts

Tool Drop Holsters come in a wide variety of choices and can accommodate nearly any hand tool. The HOL-2TOOLBLT is a great choice when your job requires you to use more than just one tool. The Dual Tool Holster features two heavy duty 1″ D-Rings on each side for easy attaching. If your job requires you to use a cordless drill the HOL-BATTERY-LG is the way to go. The Battery Sleeve by Python Safety allows cordless drills and similar battery operated devices to be safely tethered when used at heights. A neoprene sleeve with an adjustable strap conforms to the shape and size of virtually any drill battery, which can then be secured using the included cinch. When using a cordless drill you will most likely need to carry a large amount of fasteners with you as well, but everyone knows spills are inevitable and lead to loss of  materials and potential hazards. To deal with this problem Python has designed the Small Parts Pouches, these pouches will stop accidental drops the moment something is put inside. Its innovative self closing system traps all your small parts inside and allows the user to easily retrieve them because no opening or closing is required.

Holsters - Buckets - Pouches

Python Safe Buckets are the perfect vessel to carry tools and materials up and down to your working area. Each Safe Bucket features a built in closure system and puncture resistant bottom to protect from accidental spills. They also come with 6 connection points that can be tethered too, along with a high quality aluminum carabiner for safe and reliable hoisting. To get the most out of you Safe Buckets you can also purchase the BKT-HBINSERT, this sturdy insert will transform your soft body Safe Bucket into a hard body Safe Bucket with extra storage pockets to help keep your tools and equipment organized.

National Safety Month – Fall Protection and the ABC’s of Fall Safety

Fall Safety ABC’s

With June being National Safety Month, we at Tanner want to highlight some potential safety concerns you will typically find on jobsites on a daily basis. To start things off we will talk about Fall Protection and working at heights. When working at heights even the smallest misstep can lead to serious injury or even death. In 2013 one out of every 5 fatalities was in the construction industry and more than a third of those deaths came from falls. Here at Tanner we believe most, if not all of these deaths could have been prevented if they followed the simple Fall Safety ABC’s.

A typical Personal Fall Arrest System is made up of the ABC’s of Fall Safety, which are (A) Anchors, (B) Body Support, (C) Connectors, and (D) Descent and Rescue. Together these components form a complete system for maximum safety of the worker using them.

A – Anchors

Anchors are necessary for a secure point of attachment and MUST be able to support the intended load attached to them. Anchor connectors vary by industry, type of installation and structure.

Concrete D-Ring Anchor


A simple yet versatile and safe concrete anchor solution is the 2104560 Concrete D-Ring Anchor. This re-usable anchor can be used for temporary or even permanent applications. It features a safe “hook-up” indicator to notify the user if the anchor has been installed properly. This 5,000 lb. rated connection point swivels 360 degrees, is OSHA compatible and meets or exceeds all applicable industry standards.

B – Body Support

Body Support is typically a full body harness; these harnesses distribute fall forces evenly over the upper thighs, pelvis, chest and shoulders. Many of our harnesses that we sell can be used on most jobs, but DBI Sala also manufactures harnesses designed for specific industries such as construction, oil and gas, transportation, and wind industry. DBI Sala harnesses have rightfully earned the reputation for maximum comfort, freedom of motion, and ease of use. Along with attributes designed to please the user, these harnesses also meet OSHA and ANSI standards, including the stringent ANSI Z359.1.

Compliance in a Can Light



One of our best selling products is our (2199802) Compliance in a Can Light. In this kit features Protecta Pro gear which provides greater comfort and added safety. This leads to reduced worker fatigue and increased productivity. Each and every Protecta Pro Lanyard now features a 3,600 lb. gated hook meeting ANSI Z359. All during June and National Safety Month we have a special low price of $64.50 for this kit. Kit contains: A (1191995) 5-point FIRST Full Body Harness and a (1341001) Single-Leg Shock Absorbing Lanyard.


C – Connectors

Connectors attach to the users full body harness as well as the anchorage point. Connectors can either be a Lanyard or Self Retracting Lifeline (SRL). When using a lanyard as part of a fall arrest system, it must contain an energy absorbing unit that limits fall arrest forces during a fall to less than 1,800 lbs. (8kN). For extra safety most designs keep forces below 900 lbs. (4kN). Shock absorbers either come in pack or tubular styles depending on the user’s preference. SRL’s automatically extend and retract allowing the user to move about at normal speeds within a designated working area. SRL’s are designed to always keep tension on the lifeline to reduce dragging, snapping, and potential tripping hazards. If a fall does occur, a speed-sensing brake will activate, stopping the fall and reducing the forces imposed on the user to safe levels.

AD111A Rebel SRL


Our best selling self retracting lifeline is the (AD111A)  from Capital Safety. The Protecta Rebel 11’ web SRL features a 1” polyester web lifeline with steel snap hook, swiveling anchorage point, and anchorage carabiner. Protecta Rebel SRLs are built with super-tough yet lightweight composite housing designed to last and provide an economical fall protection solution without compromising safety or performance.


D – Decent & Rescue

Decent and Rescue devices may not be used all the time, but they are a necessity and can mean the difference between life and death in a worse case scenario.  These devices are necessary when working in a confined space and the user needs to be lowered and raised out of the confined working area. They are also necessary for more serious events such as when a fellow worker has fallen and needs to be rescued. In this scenario every second counts, which is why a reliable, quick and efficient rescue and descent system is necessary. Automatic rescue and decent systems usually require much less training than user controlled systems, but they are also less adaptable to multiple tasks. Careful consideration of the working environment should be taken into account when selecting a rescue and decent system.

Rollgliss R250 Pole Rescue Kit


The DBI Sala Rollgliss R250 Pole Rescue Kit is ideal for use as a peer rescue system in industrial environments. The system is extremely simple, yet completely safe and efficient. It will enable the rescuer to remove a person from danger without putting themselves at risk by descending to them. Unlike many industrial rope access rescue systems, the Rollgliss™ R250 rescue kit is easy to operate allowing everyone to use it, no specialized rescue skills are required. To use the system you simply find an anchorage point on the structure that is above the person to be rescued. The kit contains a small number of pre-assembled components that enables the rescue to be completed in a few simple steps.

Champion’s Brand New Carbide Tipped Stack Cutting Annular Cutters

Champion has just come out with a brand new line of Carbide Tipped Stack Cutting Annular Cutters. Unlike typical annular cutters, these stack cutters are engineered to drill through multiple layers of material at a time. Stack cutters allow you to cut large diameter holes in structural steel beams and plate. They can be used in conjunction with Champion Magnetic Drill Presses to easily drill through multiple layers at once. The stack cutting annular cutters are designed so you can drill through multiple layers of material without having to stop to remove each center plug. The plugs will build up inside the cutter and be ejected out once the final layer is drilled through. This feature can save you valuable time when your job involves drilling multiple holes.

Champion’s Carbide Tipped Stack Cutting Annular Cutters are designed with a special tooth geometry which enables you to smoothly drill through multiple plates at once, where typical non-modified cutters cannot. They are manufactured with a special inner diameter grind (ID), this allows them to cut cylindrical slugs without leaving the traditional “top hat brim”. This enables multiple slugs to build up inside the cutter, which are cleanly ejected when the final plate is drilled.

DynaFlex SC – The Best Choice When Looking for a Tough, Durable, and Flexible Security Sealant

DynaFlex SC

After a brutal winter many public buildings and facilities need repairs to fix all the broken joints and sharp edges. Avoid possible lawsuits, vandalism, and further damage by immediately fixing the problem areas with DynaFlex SC. DynaFlex SC is a unique one part, non-sag, tamper resistant elastomeric STPU (silyl-terminated polyurethane) joint sealant. DynaFlex SC may be more expensive than typical sealants, but these other sealants are far less rugged and durable. When using DynaFlex SC you’ll be repairing less and protected from tampering and/or acts of vandalism.

DynaFlex SC

DynaFlex SC Attributes:

  • One part, non-sag, tamper resistant elastomeric STPU joint sealant
  • Many of the strengths of a two-component security sealant
  • User friendly, ease of application properties of an one-component sealant
  • Achieves high tensile and tear strengths
  • Abrasion resistance and an average ultimate hardness of at least 55
  • Can withstand 25% total joint movement

Dynaflex SC is a tamper-resistant security sealant. It can be used for interior expansion and control joints, window and door perimeter joints, protrusions and penetrations, vents, around fixtures, and in other interior joints or openings of any kind requiring a sealant. Dynaflex SC can be used on masonry to masonry, masonry to metal, or metal to metal. It also has great adhesion to polycarbonate sheet for interior security glazing.

DynaFlex SC Physical Properties


Surface Preparation:

Proper joint preparation is extremely critical when using DynaFlex SC. All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from all foreign matter and contaminants. This includes curing compounds, form-release agents, and other coatings. Old caulking materials should be completely removed with tool and/or other abrasives. When working with metal, all surfaces must be free of rust, corrosion, and protective coatings.


Security caulking requires exceptional adhesion, particularly in containment areas like inmate cells and similar structures. P-75 primer should be used on porous substrates to obtain a superior adhesion. When working with steel, aluminum, polycarbonate, and glass P-120 primer should be used. When applying DynaFlex SC over block that has been sealed with a block filler, priming may still be necessary.


Before application, joints should be masked to ensure a clean appearance. DynaFlex SC should be applied in a continuous fashion using standard caulking equipment. Be sure to fill the joint completely. If tooling is necessary, be sure to do it immediately to assure a full adhesion.


It is important to immediately remove all excess sealants and smears with mineral spirits. If DynaFlex SC has already cured, remove it by scraping with a tool or an abrasive. If painting is necessary to match color, the best choice would be a high quality latex paint. A good oil based paint will also be acceptable.


If the sealant is damaged and the bond is still intact, cut out the damaged area, prime, and recaulk. If the bond has been compromised, completely remove the sealant, clean / prepare the joint, prime, and recaulk.
