The Safe Set Brake Stick is a tool specifically designed and engineered to enhance the safety performance of railroad employees. The Safe Set Brake Stick eliminates an employee's exposure to risk and injury associated with ascending and descending rail cars to apply and release hand brakes and retainer valves. The Safe Set Brake Stick permits an employee to open knuckles without entering the gauge of the rail. The Safe Set has a revolutionary twist locking mechanism that ensures positive positioning of the telescoping tool. The hook completes the multipurpose design of the tool.
The elimination of safety hazards is tantamount in improving safety performance. Improved safety performance results in improved employee efficiency. Improved employee efficiency translates into savings for the railroad.
