Guardian Product Solutions featuring Quick-Switch®

Innovators in Dropped Object Prevention

Guardian's Quick-Switch® Tool Transfer System is a revolutionary, hands-free tool tether innovation that streamlines the secure transfer of tools when working at height, without the need to disconnect the tool from an anchor. Users remain in full control of the tool with 100% tie-off and the mechanical lock fits multiple tools to easily switch each tool’s connection from belts to wrists and between hands. 

Leaders in Dropped Object Prevention

Guardian, the world’s largest independent height safety brand, is excited to announce the launch of a comprehensive dropped object prevention program, featuring the patented Quick-Switch® Tool Transfer System, into the European and International markets.

Dropping objects from height in a workplace can lead to significant costs through implementation of large, idle, exclusion zones, damage to equipment or tools, or lost time due to personal injury or fatality. Guardian is committed to helping businesses minimize these costs and risks. 

A comprehensive dropped-tool prevention programme significantly increases worksite efficiency and improves both worker and pedestrian protection. Guardian’s extensive range of tethering and anchoring products features unique solutions for fast deployment, allowing tool tethering in simple steps and just a few seconds. Our award-winning Quick-Switch® Tool Transfer System, allows guaranteed, hands-free, secure handling and transfer in nearly any type of environment.
