Tool Lanyard: Quick-Connect Attachments

Milwaukee’s line of tool lanyards are rated for tools ranging from 10 lb to 35 lb. The lanyards’ 360° swiveling attach points ensure that the operator does not get tangled while operating the tool. All have locking carabiners for clipping to a work belt or nearby railing, and a quick-connect system allows for frequently used tools to switch between lanyards as needed. The lanyards are color-coded to ensure the correct weight-rated lanyard is used for the right tool. Milwaukee Tool Co.;
