    Attaching my sewer inspection tools so they don't get dropped into a manhole.

    OK, so you've picked out your tool lanyard and now what .... well, start with these! The elastic tails make these connectors very versatile and should fit most of your tools. Depending on your tool , you way need to pick up the cold shrink wrap tubes to give these more friction on the tool.

    PROS
    Like I said about the tool lanyards, these tool tails have some serious build quality! The materials are thick and sturdy with great stitching, and the elastic cord is appropriately thick. These even have the reflective stitch too. The elastic loops were thicker that I had expected which was my main concern before buying. The black plastic locks had great tension too so even when I pulled elastic loop as hard as I could, these still held tight. I was very happy to see that the rings are made of steel and are welded closed, so you don’t have to worry about a gap opening up sometime in the future.

    CONS
    The main but likely inherent problem is that the elastic loops will experience wear with (hopefully not) frequent dropping (especially with heavier and rougher surface tools). Having done some of my own testing, I experienced a little fraying of the outer layer of the nylon around the elastic core, no immediate dangers at all just something you’ll have to keep and eye on. If you start experiencing this, you likely need to use a cold shrink wrap.

    My other issue might not be avoidable either but the black barrel lock is a little hard to use and gets in the way but mainly, depending on how the tool drops, the barrel could be unlocked by making contact with the tool on descent, but this feature might have been corrected with a newer generation.

    THOUGHTS AND WISHES
    Regarding the steel rings, I wish they could have been just a little bit bigger, or a different shape, as this would have made it a little easier in attaching 2 clips at a time so there is always a positive connection to the tool.

    Colors … MORE PLEASE! I can understand that there isn’t a high demand for a rainbow variety of tool lanyards, but having a selection of colors for tool tails and attachments would assist greatly in locating a particular tool in your pouch just by following the colored tail! Huge opportunity! I can imagine someone who has to tie off more than 10 tools can hardly wade through the same color chords to find the needed tool.

    Fantastic feedback! We appreciate you noticing the quality built into our Tool Tails especially our d-rings which actually are fully cast with no weld or weak point. A few things that might help this product perform even better for you even though we hope you’re not dropping tools on purpose ... Try choking the Tool Tail onto the tool by laying the tool over both lengths of the loop and passing the d-ring end through the loop and synching it down onto the tool rather than sliding the loop over the end of the tool. This will give you double strength and abrasion to work with. Also don’t forget to Trap those Tails with one of our Squids® Tool Traps!
