OmniGear, a division of Gig Gear that launched in 2020, has introduced the new SafeTHT, the latest addition to the Two Hand Touch line of wearable iPad and tablet harnesses that secure to the chest via an adjustable harness to leave both hands available to interface with other equipment.
SafeTHT has reflective, high-visibility striping on both the outside of the harness and the inside flap when it’s open, while the high-visibility fabric allows it to be worn in conjunction with other hi-viz vests, shirts and jackets without violating any required workplace safety standards.
“Creating gear that makes workers’ jobs easier and more efficient is the core mission of OmniGear,” says Danny Shatzkes, OmniGear’s owner and founder. “But above that is safety. The reflective fabric on the SafeTHT takes safety to a whole new level. We’re proud to offer solutions for AV installers that not only streamlines their work, but also keeps them, and those around them, safe.”
SafeTHT puts the weight of the tablet closer to the installer’s core, intended to make it more ergonomic and decrease hand fatigue and cramping. Viewing angles are adjustable and built-in accessories pockets provide access to tools, radios and more. The harness’s wide straps are deisnged to hold the harness securely while tightening and loosening for a customized fit. SafeTHT is available in two sizes, 9.7 inches and 12.9 inches.
In addition, OmniGear has released SafeTHT’s first accessory, the Drop Stop, a high-visibility cell phone tether that attaches to the SafeTHT. Constructed of a stretchable, coiled tether, it securely attaches to mobile phone and case on one end and hooks onto any loop on the other end via carabiner, preventing phones from falling or getting lost or damaged.
