The Deluxe Gear retractor mounting methods
The RT4-5272 is a very extensive set with three mounting methods: a Velcro strap to attach the retractor with Velcro, a snap clip to attach it to a D-ring and a threaded stud which can be attached to your clothes or bag. As such you will be able to decide which mounting method you prefer. The steps you need to take to attach the retractor are clearly described on the box.
The base of the retractor is enhanced with a Quick Connect I (Q/C 1) mounting system, a click system with a masculine part (the plug that holds the key-ring), and a feminine part (where you insert the plug). As such you will be able to quickly connect and disconnect your gear. This deluxe version offers you multiple options to attach your gear to the retractor: a key-ring, a lanyard with a key-ring, and a lanyard with a nylon loop. In addition, a ‘pad-eye kit’ is included: a plastic plate with opening you can attach onto anything. Perfect when you are using tools with no room for a key-ring or nylon loop.
Using the Gear Keeper retractor
You attach the retractor to your clothes, bag, or handle using one of the mounting systems. At the base of the retractor you will find a Quick Connect I mounting system which you attach (with the key-ring, lanyard with key-ring or lanyard with nylon loop) to your gear. As soon as you use the concerning product you will automatically pull out the cord. When you want to use your tool you can pull out the cord. Because your gear is attached to your retractor you will never be able to drop or lose your belongings again. As soon as you are done using your tool, carefully let go of the device and the automatic retracting system will smoothly pull your gear back to the retractor. In short: grab, use, let go, and you are done. You will no longer have to store any of your devices! Useful, and safe!
