Dropping tools can hinder your efficiency and prove to be costly if an expensive drill, for example, were to break. Consider investing in a reliable tool hook to prevent accidents like these from holding you back. While there are various options on the market, most share a few key benefits. Some varieties, like the Gorilla Hook, go the extra mile.
Have the Right Tool Within Reach
Whether you’re a master of DIY or an experienced construction worker, productivity is key to a successful project. Searching for the right tool can waste time and take your mind off the task at hand. A good tool hook will ensure that you always have the right tools within reach. The Gorilla Hook’s relatively compact design allows you to bring your tools with you when entering tight spots so that they don't have to be handed to you.
Keep Tools Tightly Secured
Your tool hook should be able to maintain a tight grip on your tools, regardless of how mobile or cramped you become on the job. Fortunately, the Gorilla Hook’s custom clasp will ensure that your tools remain in place, even in extreme situations. A good tool hook will not only keep a firm grasp on your cordless drill but will also remain firmly attached to your body. The Gorilla Hook is equipped with a secure belt loop system that prevents it from detaching from your belt. This attachment slides over your regular belt or tool belt and is impossible to remove without removing the belt itself. With the confidence that your tools will remain secured to your side, you have the freedom to focus and work swiftly. You can also be more mobile, as you don’t have to worry about small impacts knocking your tool hook to the ground.
Protect Your Coworkers
A dropped tool can cause serious harm to a coworker at a lower level. For construction teams that work in close proximity to one another, a reliable tool hook can also reduce injuries on site. The impact of a fallen tool may even cause damage to your project and a need for costly repairs that delay progress.
Keep One Hand Free
The one-handed access of your most frequently used tools is absolutely essential to a smooth and efficient workflow. Not only does it save time but it also allows you to stabilize yourself using your free hand, should you be on a tall scaffolding or ladder. Many tool hook options, like the bungee tool hook, require two hands to store and free the tool. Eliminate this safety risk by opting for the Gorilla Hook’s self-closing latch. Once you drop the drill into the hook, it is automatically secured in place. A precise flick of the thumb frees the tool once again—an effortless motion that is not easily mimicked by other forces, like the jolt of the tool hook bumping against your leg.
