Proto® Makes High Quality Affordable Tools with Safety in Mind
Save Money Before a Costly Mistake Happens
Proto® Industrial Tools, a business unit of Stanley Black and Decker Inc. has taken tool drop prevention to new heights. Proto® Tethered Tool Systems are designed to protect workers from the dangers of unsecured tools, while still being able to perform their jobs safely and efficiently. Proto® has engineered their tools to include attachment points from the beginning, making tethering the tool a cinch. Along with this safety feature engineered into the tools, Proto® only uses high quality metals and precision machining to manufacture a durable tool that will work safely, reliably, and accurately for years of use.
Proto® Offers a Wide Variety of Tether-Ready Tools
Professionals in the Oil, Gas, and Petrochemical industry will love the number of tethering solutions and tools Proto® makes. These include wrenches, impact sockets, torque wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, cutting & finishing tool and much more.
- Sockets, Drive Tools, & Accessories – All Proto® Tethered Tool Sockets, Ratchets, and Torque Wrenches feature a Positive Control Pin Detent System. The Positive Control System requires a separate tool to attach or remove the socket, helping to eliminate accidental detachments.
- Wrenches – Proto® Tethered Wrenches are specifically assembled with the correct Heat Shrink Loop. The wrench is secure and remains strong because no holes are bored through the handle.
- Striking & Struck Tools – Proto® Tether Attachment Points will secure a striking tool without holes or welds that weaken or unbalance properly-made equipment.
- Pliers – All Proto® Tethered Pliers integrate a Tether Attachment Point in the handle that sits in the heel of your hand. When the pliers open, the lanyard remains stationary in the hand and promotes a more natural use of the pliers.
- Screwdrivers & Hex Keys – Proto® Tethered Hex Keys and Screwdrivers feature tool collars that tightly attach to the bar of the tool.
