SAFETY TOOL FOR CONTAINING DEBRIS FROM ELECTRICAL WORK
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2004020157
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A safety tool is described having magnets, an outer non-conductive sheath (004) encompassing an inner bag (008), and support structure. The tool provides safety for the operator while drilling or cutting into electrical/electronic enclosures, such as switchgear. The tool is constructure so that an operator can perform a task while preventing any conductive debris caused by this task to come into contact with any electrical or electronic parts. The tool is positioned on the inside of the switchgear, to surround the area on which the hole is drilled or cut. The top portion of the tool, which is coupled to the top portion by the non-conductive sheath, collects and magnetically contains the debris, such as shavings from drilling into the structure.
