Knife safety is thrown into sharp relief with the retractable safety knife, cord and karabiner from leading physical security product supplier, Securikey. Ideal for warehouse and distribution centre use, the 90cm cord and karabiner fixing allows for hands-free work whilst still keeping the knife within easy reach, making it one of the most reliable and convenient safety tools on the market.
Earlier this year, Keira Dunnet was stunned when her seven year old daughter opened a delivery of foam building blocks to discover that, along with the bucket of toys promising ‘no sharp corners’, the packing department had also added a little something extra – a used three inch blade from a packing knife! Unfortunately, this is not the first story of its kind in recent months and is a costly error that can lead to injury and, subsequently, expensive legal action.
When working with knives, safety should always be paramount and, situations like Keira’s can be easily prevented with Securikey’s safety knife and retractor.
Tested to a staggering one million pulls, 90cm of high strength polyester cord ensures that the knife cannot be dropped or left behind and also allows the knife to be used for work at arm’s length, returning smoothly to its case after use. For extra security, the knife also includes a tape splitter so that packaging tape can be cut without exposing a blade.
With an ergonomic comfort handle, blunt safety tip to prevent puncture wounds and a tool-free blade change, Securikey’s safety knife is a cut above the rest for practicality, reliability and peace of mind. A range of accessories and spares, including blades, are also available on Securikey’s website.
