The following information is provided to ensure that all users of the FingerSaver achieve the best and safest benefits of its design and intended use.

It should be noted that the FingerSaver is NOT a lifting device and no safe working loads or breaking strains are implied or advised. Any tool attached or held by the FingerSaver should be independently assessed by the user and appropriately supported during any lifting or locating of the spanner/tool to the Nut and/or Bolt. The best practice is for the tool and FingerSaver to be supported simultaneously as it is securely positioned on the Nut and/or Bolt. Once positioned the FingerSaver offers the user the ability to remove hands and fingers further away from potential pinch points and impact zones. Additionally the FingerSaver will absorb the direct shock and vibration from hammer impact and offers a more comfortable distance from hot equipment.

The FingerSaver is intended to offer support of the tool equivalent to that of hands and fingers; its design carefully considered and tested on typical applications and uses where large spanners and flogging spanners are used on nuts and bolts. As all applications may vary, a risk assessment of its appropriate safe use should always be assessed by the user, prior to each and every operation.

The FingerSaver may be considered for use in other applications and/or on other tools, where the operator wishes to move hands and fingers further away from the risk of impact or pinching; again the operator MUST independently assess whether its use is appropriate and ultimately safe.

The materials of construction of the FingerSaver are designed to be light in weight and quick and easy to support and release the tool supported; if dropped the FingerSaver is unlikely to injure the user easily, damage equipment or directly generate sparks in hazardous environments. The materials have been selected and developed to be resistant to ozone and atmospheric ageing and are also resistant to a large number of contaminants, in particular general lubricants that may contaminate its surface through contact with soiled work gloves and or soiled plant areas. If any part of the FingerSaver is subjected to any known aggressive contaminant and/or shows any sign of damage or deterioration through product contamination we recommend the FingerSaver is safely disposed of. The main plastic body is designed not to splinter upon impact and will not deteriorate easily; the operator/user should however inspect the FingerSaver as they should any other tool and only use if not obviously damaged. If any part of the FingerSaver is significantly damaged through impact or pinching it should again be disposed of safely – please remember the cost of replacing is significantly lower than the price of injury and the FingerSaver will already have done its job!

Please note when using the FingerSaver, that the use of ALL standard site safety wear and personal protective equipment should always be maintained. We recommend the use of lanyards; where possible attached directly to the spanner or tool.
