Mini cable lockout

Weighing less than heavy metal chains, the Mini Cable Lockout has a 4-in. body diameter and fits in the palm of your hand. The lockout works much like a tape measure and uses 8 ft of flexible cable to secure electrical and mechanical control points. A single device can be used to lock out multiple energy sources, and it includes six holes for padlocks. The lockout is constructed of nylon and resists impacts, chemicals, and corrosion, and the cable is available in high-strength, vinyl-coated steel or nonconductive nylon.
