Safety Whip Check Cables
A major cause of air and blast hose accidents comes not from ruptured hoses, but from accidentally disconnecting or loosening a hose connection while it is under pressure. The result is that the hose moves uncontrollably and can cause considerable damage and (serious) injury in the vicinity. Therefore, use safety cables to prevent injuries and accidents resulting from the failure of a hose or coupling. Place a safety cable around each hose connection. Make sure it is attached with minimal slack (fully extended) for maximum safety. Available in 2 varieties: hose to hose, hose to tool.
Maximum working pressure on the hose/coupling: 12 bar.
Available in sizes: 3mm and 6mm.

Hose diameter from 13mm (1/2") to 32mm (1-1/4"): 3mm
