DEWALT has announced 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 jobsites when working at height with a maximum lanyard length of 2 meters, helping to secure the tool in case it is dropped.
LANYARD READY solutions are available in two ways; 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) 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 one or more of the following; control, dust containment or low vibration, without sacrificing performance.
