Ergodyne Introduces Squids® Glove Grabber™

Squids Grabber Model 3400
Ergodyne today introduced the Grabber™, a handy and cost effective device for improving worker safety by making it easier than ever to keep gloves within reach at all times. Using a patent-pending design that opens smoother and wider, the Grabber holds gloves of every style and thickness and for virtually any application.

"It's an easy-to-use, durable device that can benefit every worker,” said Tom Votel, Ergodyne president and CEO. "Gloves are one of the most common and critical pieces of safety gear on the jobsite and the Grabber ensures gloves are where workers need them, when they need them, throughout the course of the day.”

The Grabber is available in two styles:

Model 3400 attaches to a pant belt loop
Model 3405 clips onto either a standard belt or tool belt
Both designs are made of a non-conductive, lightweight material, are detachable and are available in four colors: black, blue, hi-vis orange and hi-vis lime.

"We've spent the last two years researching and perfecting this design,” said Votel. "In addition to improving the functionality, we've also priced it competitively. It fits seamlessly into our current line of products.”

The Grabber is the newest addition to Ergodyne's expanding line of Squids lanyards and accessories. It is also the latest in a broader range of worker safety gear and products that have continued to build on Ergodyne's growing reputation as a niche consolidator and one-stop-shop for the industry and related distributors.

Available to the market in late July, the Grabber has a suggested list price of $2.95. Each Grabber can be customized with a company logo, safety message or other design. Retail displays will be available for distributors of the product.
