SafetyGate™ Professional Retrofit
by SafeStart Systems™
Each year, thousands of injuries occur when an electrically powered tool or machine unexpectedly starts after a power interruption. This preventable hazard is caused when a tool’s switch is left “on” after a power outage, circuit breaker trip or accidental unplugging from the wall outlet.
The revolutionary new SafetyGate™ Professional Retrofit is a simple, inexpensive, safety product that attaches to your tool’s power plug in seconds, providing anti-restart protection wherever and whenever you use it.
SafetyGate™ works by recognizing when your tool’s power switch is left on and puts up a protective “gate,” stopping the flow of electricity. The bright yellow LED indicator tells you that your SafetyGate™ is in “protect mode.” To reset, simply turn your tool’s power switch to “off”.
The Safety Gate™ Professional Retrofit becomes your tools’ new plug. It’s completely automatic! There are no buttons to push or switches to reset. It weighs less than 5.6g (2 oz) and two retrofits can be used in a standard wall outlet.
The patented SafetyGate™ design complies with OSHA, NFPA and CSA standards* in eliminating the hazard of dangerous restarts. Now with SafeStart Systems’ miniaturization technology, owners of hand held tools and small machines can have the same safety anti-restart protection at a fraction of the cost of devices mandated for larger Industrial machinery.
The Safety Gate™ Professional Retrofit is manufactured in the U.S.A.
