With over 27,000 recorded incidents of people being struck by falling objects each year in Canada, dropped objects prevention planning helps prevent personal injury, equipment damage and tool loss.
Because we continually develop new products to increase worker health and safety, 3M has leveraged its technology to design ergonomic products that help prevent tools from being dropped by at-height workers including four brand new Fall Protection for Tools products.

Convenience and safety come together with the 3M™ DBI-SALA Quick Wrap Tape II. Compared to previous generations of our Quick Wrap Tape, this re-engineered tape has a longer shelf life, requires fewer wraps to secure tools (6 wraps vs. a previous 10 wraps for tools up to 2 lbs) and uses proprietary 3M material and adhesive to help resist tears even better than before.
The 3M™ DBI-SALA® 5 lb. Retractable Tool Lanyard features a lightweight, compact housing and a strong Dyneema® Retracting Line. This design helps reduce tangling—minimizing worksite tripping hazards and entanglements—while reducing weight on workers’ belts and harnesses.
Our new harness adapter is designed to be used with the new 3M™ DBI-SALA® 5 lb. Retractable Tool Lanyard and can be used on selected products that feature a black and gold carabiner, including the Hook2Hook Coil Tether product lineup.
Our patented Hook2Hook Coil Tether features a swivel hook, making tools like screwdrivers and wrenches easier to use. Suitable for use from holsters, belts, harnesses and tool pouches alike, the Hook2Hook Coil Tether is a versatile solution that is both resistant to heat and to sharp objects.
Creating a secure attachment point for use at height, Tape Measure Sleeves are now available in two sizes: Medium (for most tape measures up to 7.62 m / 25 ft) and Large (for most tape measures up to 10.6 m / 35 ft). Featuring an integrated D-ring, the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Tape Measure Sleeve can be tethered in a variety of ways to help protect it from accidental drops.
