The BoomerHang By Journeyman Gear – BH549
We are proud to announce that Our 2nd newly developed lineman tool to release is the BoomerHang. It is the first tool of it’s kind that is designed to mount on the exterior of a bucket. The BoomerHang provides a fail-safe option for hanging expensive tools and equipment. Until now, the only two popular options for hanging gear on the outside of the bucket was either on a plastic bucket hook or on the makeshift wrap around rope rig that more and more companies are banning due to accidents, broken tools and injuries from tools falling off onto the crewmen below. We can now hang our tools with confidence while providing a higher level of drop zone protection on every job site. As expensive as lineman tools are these days, it’s very easy to end up having several thousand dollars worth of tools hanging off our buckets on every pole, especially if we had to make room for a 2nd man to fly with us in the same bucket. It is remarkable to see first hand just how much room can be freed up just by hanging all our tools together and out of the way until needed, especially for the men working out of a single bucket where space is very limited to begin with.
The BoomerHang is milled out of extremely strong material and has 3 integrated snap on vertical braces that provide incredible support when loaded down. With all of the different tools that linemen require to perform our daily tasks, including hoists, cordless tools we, dog bone sockets, Lowell wrenches, hammers, handles, chainsaws, shotgun sticks and grounds, along with everything else that has a carabiner or hook, we are taking back the positive control of the drop zone.
We designed the larger oval holes in the BoomerHang to provide enough room to slide around and sort through your tools easier even with gloves and sleeves on. Also, as a side effect of hanging gear on the BoomerHang versus regular bucket hooks, your tools will swing away from the edge of your bucket providing an easier grip on whatever tool your reaching for.
We gave it the maximum thickness of material between the holes and the outer edges of the tool to help prevent damage from pushing it against poles, trees or pole mounted equipment while operating the bucket.
Once the BoomerHang is mounted on the bucket using 2 standard bucket hooks, it requires some effort to remove. We designed the tool to basically snap into position on the corners of a bucket so it could not be easily knocked off both during use and while truck is traveling down the road.
The boomerang is our 2nd tool that provides a brand new option for tool organization following the CornerPocket, and we did not want linemen to have to choose between one or the other, so we engineered the BoomerHang to work perfectly back to back with the CornerPocket on the same 2 hooks. Let me tell you, when both of these tools are mounted together on a bucket it is the ultimate tool hanging system, the perfect team. As with the CornerPocket, this tool is also easily broken down to lay flat, enabling it to be easily packed and stored.
