The Instant Tether System™:
your existing tools made safe for working at height in just a few seconds

The NLG Instant Tether System™ (ITS) is a unique, effective and secure way to install a tool tethering system . It's fast, simple and strong; designed for busy and challenging workplaces where safety comes first.

What makes it so special?

  • Install it on existing tools
  • Install it yourself on site
  • Use it immediately
  • Easily inspect and manage.

Here's how all these elements come together.

Retrofit the ITS™ without damaging your tools

We often hear about tool tethering systems that require you to adapt your existing tools. A number of problems arise here. Firstly, it takes time to implement the adjustments. Second, those changes may void the tool's warranty. Finally, you or your subcontractors may not always need tool lines when working at ground level and therefore do not want permanent adjustments.

The NLG Instant Tether System™ eliminates all these problems.

How? Let's explain.

We designed it to work with any tool without the need for adjustment. You don't have to worry about damaging your tools while installing our mounting system or voiding your warranty.

It is quick and easy to install; and when you remove it, there are no stains, no sticky residue of glue and no damage.

Ready for use

Our unique Tether Tape™ is a self-fusing silicone tape with a fiberglass mesh woven into it to give it the strength it needs to do its job.

Once stretched and activated, it adheres to itself without any glue. After 24 hours the tape has completely hardened and become one whole. But you don't have to wait to use your tools.

The Tether Tape™ has been tested and certified for immediate use.

Install the ITS™ yourself

Self-installation is an essential part of our Instant Tether System™. We designed it to work for you in every way. You don't have to worry about sending your expensive tools away to have a mounting system installed. You won't miss work or have downtime waiting for your tools to be returned.

Our Instant Tether System™ consists of two things:

First you select the correct D-ring chain for your tool. These are available in different sizes. You can also opt for a non-conductive D-ring if you perform electrical work.

Then you cut a piece of Tether Tape™. This should be long enough to wrap the tool at least eight times. Our tape uses self-fusing technology to give it an unbeatable grip. Simply remove the plastic backing when you are ready to attach your D-ring binder, making sure to keep the Tether Tape™ firmly stretched as you wrap it around your tools.

It is the stretching that activates the self-fusing technology. Once glued, use is guaranteed for one year. When that time is up, cut the tape and replace it. You can reuse the D-ring as often as you want.

You don't need any special equipment or knowledge to install our Instant Tether System™. Just watch our step-by-step video to find out.

Manage your tool tethering system

If you are responsible for the security of your site, you have a lot to think about every day. We don't want to add to that burden, so we thought about how we could make the Instant Tether System™ easy to manage.

The ITS™ has a one-year warranty, but this means that the tape must be replaced after 12 months of use.

To help you keep track, we offer our Tether Tape™ in two different colors: green and orange.

If you install our tool retention systems for most of your tools at the same time, you can keep track of when you did this and what color tape you used. Let's say you start with green Tether Tape™ on all your tools.

After 12 months have passed, collect all tools with green Tether Tape™, remove them, and reattach the D-ring tool chain with the orange Tether Tape™.

That makes it easy to recognize tools that are not compliant.

We believe that tying down tools is essential to prevent objects from falling in a wide range of industries. But we also believe that the introduction of such systems should be quick, simple and cost-effective.

Our Instant Tether System™ gives you security in seconds. With so many benefits, there's no need to wait to make this part of your strategy to reduce falling objects and make your workplace safer.
