Make projects easier and more efficient with Klein Tools Tradesman Pro tool bags, backpacks, and specialized cases or an aerial apron. Whether you work on site or travel from one job to another, you have to keep your tools and instruments transportable, accessible, and secure. You can save yourself a lot of time by storing tools in professionally designed and engineered portable, impact-resistant containers that will protect them against tough environments, accidental misplacement, or even theft. Most likely, you have invested a lot in tools, so protecting them from possible damage and getting them to your job site in a secure and organized way is a top priority.

PK Safety carries several storage options that are made in the USA: tool bags, cases, buckets, aprons, and backpacks. Consider which features are most important for your application to narrow down the options in order to choose the right container. Whichever tools you are using, if the container is functional, it will streamline your work and help reduce stress on the job.

Product Experts’ Picks: Top 3 Hard Hats

Posted on Thursday, April 20th, 2017 by Mila Adamovica

Experts Picks

Every month our Product Experts offer top product picks for a given category. This month we select our favorites for hard hats because they are some of our most popular head protection products that are vital for workplace safety.

PETZL ALVEO VENT VENTILATED CLIMBERS HELMET HARD HAT A20V

PETZL ALVEO VENT VENTILATED CLIMBERS HELMET HARD HAT A20V

Petzl Alveo – the most comfortable, light, best-looking helmet on the market (in our opinion). The best-looking one keeps you nice and cool too.

PETZL VERTEX VENT HELMET A10V

PETZL VERTEX VENT HELMET A10V

Petzl Vertex Vent – More durable than the Alveo but not quite as comfortable. If you don’t want to replace your helmet after every little impact, this is a top pick for you!

PIP EVOLUTION VENTED HARD HAT 280-EV6151V

PIP EVOLUTION VENTED HARD HAT 280-EV6151V

PIP 280-EV6151V – Simple, basic hard hat. Reasonably comfortable and gets the job done. If you frequently loose your things, this is a great option (because it’s inexpensive to replace).

Experts Picks

Every month our Product Experts offer top product picks for a given category. This month we define our favorites for harnesses because they are some of our most popular fall protection products that are crucial for workplace safety.

Top 3 Harnesses:

DBI-SALA ExoFit Harness – The daddy of harnesses. Comfortable, light, a shining example of how well American-made products can be.

DBI-SALA EXOFIT SAFETY D-RING HARNESS

DBI-SALA EXOFIT SAFETY D-RING HARNESS

Delta No-Tangle Vest Style Harness – Nice mid range harness, universal sizing so you can lend it to a buddy and durable enough that you’ll get it back in good shape (assuming your buddy will actually give it back).

DELTA BACK D-RING PASS-THRU LEG HARNESS 1103321

DELTA BACK D-RING PASS-THRU LEG HARNESS

Latchways Personal Rescue Device – A niche product and the coolest harness on the market. It is so good that some adventurous people wearing it could be tempted to fall on purpose just so they could drop out of the sky like spider-men. But we don’t recommend that.

LATCHWAYS RH2 R20 PRD (PERSONAL RESCUE DEVICE) HARNESS 68202-00LUS

LATCHWAYS RH2 R20 PRD HARNESS

Designed for confined space workers and those working at height, including technical rescue, as well as tower climbers and wind energy technicians, this lightweight helmet is also popular among workers who carry heavy loads or perform work that makes regular helmets too hot to wear. The CenterFit adjustment system allows you to get the helmet perfectly centered and balanced on your head for maximum comfort. It is compatible with the Petzl PIXA Headlamp and other headlamps with elastic bands for work at night. The scratch- and fog-resistant VIZIR Face Shield can be easily attached to this helmet for enhanced eye protection.
