Dewalt recently introduced LANYARD READY solutions for 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 2m, helping to secure the tool in case it is dropped.
LANYARD READY solutions are currently 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 a high level of one or more of the following: control, dust containment or low vibration, without sacrificing performance.
While the range of corded and cordless tools approved for LANYARD READY use is growing, the 20V MAX* Brushless Hammer Drill/Impact Driver Combo Kit(DCK299P2LR) is available this month for $429 MSRP, where Dewalt products are sold. It comes standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee.
*Maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.
