The FallTech For Tools™ Cold Shrink Tool Attachments are used with FallTech Choke-on Cinch Loop tool attachments to create an attachment point for most hand tools, power tools, and other equipment to attach to FallTech® Tool Tethers, Wrist Attachments, and Tool Anchors.

The FallTech For Tools™ Cold Shrink Tool Attachments is designed to be used as a component in a dropped object prevention program. The tool
tethering system is an assembly of components and subsystems to arrest a tool from an accidental drop. The system typically consists of tool attachment, a tool tether, and a tool anchor. See product labels for maximum load capacity and maximum allowable tether length.

The FallTech For Tools™ Cold Shrink Tool Attachments is designed for use by a single tool. DO NOT exceed the capacity of the lowest rated component in the system.

Installation:
Inspect the tool attachments thoroughly before attaching it to the tool for missing or damaged parts. Inspect the webbing, looped ends, and stitches for cuts, fraying, and signs of damage to the materials from excessive wear or abrasion. Inspect the split rings, D-rings, carabiners, and speed clips for excessive wear, cracks, or deformities. If any of these conditions exist, remove from service.

Ensure the cold shrink, tool and tool attachment is clean and free of oil, grease, or debris, which could prevent adequate
attachment onto the tool. The Cold Shrink and Tool Attachment should be placed away from the functional parts of the tool and the connection point should face away from the center of gravity. See the figures below for the installation steps by type of attachment.

Choke-On Cinch Loop Installation Procedure: Position the Choke-on Cinch Loop Tool Attachment high up on the shaft of the tool, pull the
anchorage end through the elastic loop and pull the tool attachment to choke down onto the tool. See user manual for details. Snug the barrell lock onto the elastic loop to maintain a tight fit of the elastic cord. See user manual for details.

Cold Shrink Sizing Selection: Select the appropriate size cold shrink to fit over the shaft of the tool and the tool attachment. The cold shrink should be the smallest size that will fit over the tool and tool attachment. If the size of the cold shrink is too large, the cold shrink will not contact enough to maintain a tight fit on the tool attachment and allow it to slip off during an accidental drop. See user manual for details.

Cold Shrink Installation: Slide the cold shrink over the shaft of the tool and the tool attachment with the pull direction arrow on the cold shrink pointing away from the cinched nylon cord. Position the cold shrink below the choked on nylon cord and barrell lock. Pull the free end of the cold shrink inner core. This will allow the cold shrink to contract over the tool shaft and tool attachment. Attach a tool lanyard and anchor to complete the system. See user manual for details.
