Title: TOOL COLLET FOR SECURING A HAND TOOL TO A TOOL LANYARD
Abstract:
An apparatus and method of creating a shear across a fastener for a tool collet being attached to a hand tool includes providing a tool collet having a collet body with a peripheral body surface and a collet through opening where the collet body is divided into a first body component and a second body component and where one of the first body component and the second body component has a first radial through aperture extending from the peripheral body surface to the collet through opening, providing a setscrew within the first radial through aperture, inserting a hand tool into the collet through opening, securing the first body component to the second body component, and tightening the setscrew against the hand tool sufficient to cause the first body component and the second body component to slide in opposite directions transversely to the portion of the hand tool.
