A finger stop or hand stop on tools serves several important purposes related to safety, control, and comfort during use:
- Safety: One of the primary reasons for including a finger or hand stop on tools is to prevent the user's hand from slipping onto the working end of the tool, where they could be injured. For example, on a chisel or knife, a finger stop can prevent the hand from sliding forward onto the blade.
- Control: Finger or hand stops can improve the user's control over the tool. By providing a specific place for the hand or fingers to rest, these stops can help in applying force more precisely and consistently. This is particularly useful in tools that require fine control or precision.
- Ergonomics: Hand stops can make tools more comfortable to use, especially for extended periods. They provide a natural rest for the hand or fingers, reducing strain and fatigue. This ergonomic benefit is important in professional settings where tools are used frequently and for long durations.
- Guidance for Correct Usage: Finger and hand stops can also serve as a guide for how the tool should be held properly. This can be particularly useful for beginners or those not familiar with a specific type of tool, ensuring they grip it in a manner that is both effective and safe.
Manufactured from Chrome Vanadium, with a Mirror Finish. Chrome vanadium is a type of steel alloy that is known for its high strength, toughness, and resistance to wear and fatigue. This alloy typically contains chromium and vanadium, along with carbon and possibly other elements. The chromium adds corrosion resistance, hardness, and toughness, while vanadium contributes to increased strength and wear resistance.
- Boddingtons Electrical Ltd manufactures our dipped insulated tools with a multi-layer process. This ensures the tools are highly dielectric, comfortable to use, and resistant to impact damage.
- Regular inspection of insulated tools is important to ensure that the insulation remains intact and effective. Any signs of wear or damage to the insulation should be addressed promptly. Damaged tools should be replaced, and no longer used.
The laser print on the tool provides the following information
- IEC 60900 Standard for Hand Tools For Live Working Up to 1000 V AC and 1500 V DC
- Every tool is tested to 10.000V for 10 seconds at the end of the manufacturing cycle
- Batch Traceability for quality control.
- A permanent laser marking will stop fading throughout the lifetime of the product via wear and tear.
