Title: ANTI-FALL SAFETY DEVICE FOR TOOLS USED FOR WORK AT HEIGHTS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device comprising a central element (2) from which the following elements extend: a first cable section (2) which has a means for attaching to an anchoring point on its free end; and a second cable section (6) which has a means for attaching to a tool-holding means (8) on its free end, where at least one of the cable sections (2), (6) is retractable along the length thereof, i.e. it can be extended from the central element (1), increasing the length thereof, and can be returned into the central element. The device allows tools to be held in a continuous manner that does not affect or prevent the normal use of the tools. It also ensures that the distance required between the tool and the anchoring point can be adapted, and even in the event of loss of control of the tool, prevents and breaks the fall, without causing damage or the like, and is easy to recuperate.
