“A true Deadman Switch does not have a Lock”
CDMS comes with a “Belt Hanger” mounted on the back side of the Wooden Handle.
This “Belt Hanger” (which is a stupid idea anyway) can be removed by the user and saved for later use.
If the user feels for the need to and operate the switch with a Locking device, they can choose too.
Replacing it back on the Metal Handle side of the 2 part Wooden Handle, facing in either direction the user feels most comfortable. This “Belt Hanger “can now be used as a Lock for the Metal Handle.
The Tool can no longer be called a “TRUE DEADMAN SWITCH” but will work as close as possible.
