Next up is the KeyBiscuit. Its the only cotter key keeper and is extremely lightweight. Very convenient to keep clipped to tool bags and in the bucket using the light duty carabiner included with each one.
New tool release. The 4-Banger. Rated for 65lbs and tested at 325lbs of vertical load for 8 weeks straight. Its designed work in many different applications. When used with a single bucket hook it turns that one single hanging point into 4, providing much more options to hold our tools and gear. It can be used with carabiners or slings as well. From in the bucket to up a pole or tower, the 4-Banger will make our jobs easier while keeping our gear secure.
The clip cup holder is designed to securely slide over the skirting that protects the controls on your bucket. It's small size and durable material is a perfect product for aerial equipment that battle tight working conditions!
made of durable polycarbonate/acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (PC+ABS)+UV
The Wedge Ejector is a one of a kind wedge removal tool that is the fastest in the field. Before the Wedge Ejector a Linemen had two choices- blow your forearms out knocking off wedges, or fumble around loading and reloading a shoot off clip.
But now with this patent pending technology removing a pin fired powder actuated wedge has never been simpler. Simply lay the body of the Wedge Ejector on the flush side of the C-member with the drive bolt pointing toward the narrow end of the wedge and apply either your crescent wrench, linemen wrench or impact gun.
Wedge ejector is designed to easily fit your nut runner socket for fast and easy use. It is constructed of a rigid 3/8” steel body, complete with a powder coated finish. It’s oversized ergonomic handle allows for easy use while working in rubber gloves while removing wedges. Wedge Ejector should aid in the removal of most yellow fired shelled wedges from sizes 4/0 to 715.
We are proud to announce that Our 2nd newly developed lineman tool to release is the BoomerHang. It is the first tool of it's kind that is designed to mount on the exterior of a bucket that provides a fail safe option for hanging expensive tools and equipment. Up until now the only two popular options for hanging gear on the outside of the bucket was either on a plastic bucket hook or on the makeshift wrap around rope rig that more and more companies are banning due to accidents, broken tools and injuries from tools falling off onto the crewmen below. We can now hang our tools with confidence while providing a higher level of drop zone protection on every job site. As expensive as lineman tools are these days its very easy to end up having several thousand dollars worth of tools hanging off our buckets on every pole. Especially if we had to make room for a 2nd man to fly with us in the same bucket. For example, We both know just a squeeze tool alone can cost 2k-5k$, which makes the BoomerHang well worth utilizing in itself. During our field testing of this tool it was remarkable to see first hand just how much room can be freed up just by hanging all our tools together and out of the way until needed, especially for the men working out of a single bucket where space is very limited to begin with.
The BoomerHang is milled out of Extremely strong material and has 3 integrated snap on vertical braces that provide incredible support when loaded down with all the different tools that linemen require to perform our daily tasks, including hoists, cordless tools
, dog bone sockets, Lowell wrenches, hammers, handles, chainsaws, shotgun sticks and grounds, along with everything else that has a carabiner or hook, taking back the positive control of the drop zone.
We designed the larger oval holes in the BoomerHang to provide enough room to slide around and sort through your tools easier even with gloves and sleeves on. Also, as a side effect of hanging gear on the BoomerHang vs regular bucket hooks, your tools will swing away from the edge of your bucket providing an easier grip on whatever tool your reaching for.
Next we gave it the maximum thickness of material between the holes and the outer edges of the tool to help prevent damage from pushing it against poles, trees or pole mounted equipment while operating the bucket.
Once the BoomerHang is mounted on the bucket using 2 standard bucket hooks, it requires some effort to remove. We designed the tool to basically snap into position on the corners of a bucket so it could not be easily knocked off both during use and while truck is traveling down the road.
The BoomerHang is our 2nd tool that provides a brand new option for tool organization following the CornerPocket, and I did not want linemen to have to choose just one or the other, So we engineered the BoomerHang to work perfectly back to back with the CornerPocket on the same 2 hooks. Let me tell you, when both of these tools are mounted together on a bucket it is the ultimate tool hanging system, the perfect team.
As with the CornerPocket, this tool is also easily broken down to lay flat, enabling it to be easily packed and stored.
At Journeyman Gear We seen great value in providing an affordable option to mitigate the hazards and liability of hanging gear on the outside of the bucket, whether its on a single plastic hook or on the makeshift rope rig most lineman love to hang everything off of. The BoomerHang grants companies the opportunity to rule out the old ways of hanging tools with a new solution to replace it in hand. Lets replace those old dry rotting ropes with a tool you can depend on and take another step towards zero accidents together.
