Nothing in the evolution of homo technologicus can have prepared us for the current style of modern technological man. Here is a brief history of the changing fashions of that genius genus sometimes called geek. (Women, we are not ignoring you. Your moment has also come! Read on…)

Renaissance Man

Perhaps the most famous of the first technologically-proficient men were men like Da Vinci, who excelled in numerous fields. They were Europeans who consolidated the wisdom of the East. Their technological sketches looked forward to helicopters and their anatomical sketches drew enigmatic smiles from the ladies. It was the men who were the popinjays of the age – from their ruffled collars to their colorful hose. 

Revenge of the Nerds

The big man on campus came to be defined less and less by who swung the biggest stick and more by who could design the best catapult. Engineer salaries trended up like Dilbert’s tie, but the pointy-haired executives still kept them in their cubicles. One recognized a nerd by his uniform – the garish tie, the ink-stained shirt despite the pocket protector, and the pant pocket bulging with the slide rule. Few women wanted to be around them, let alone join them.

Goth Girls

In the new millennium, it is the hacker who saves the planet as often as it is the buff hero. Suddenly, no crime-fighting team is complete without a computer expert  – and more and more that computer expert is a woman. She might never kiss the captain, but her role is much bigger than Uhura’s ever was. She is key to closing many of the cases, even if she seldom leaves the basement. Perhaps this helps account for her dark ethos. She outlines her eyes with kohl to hide the bags under her eyes. She plays thrashing metal music to keep herself awake all night.

Hipsters

Male hackers are often comic side characters on screen, overweight and slovenly, fueled by the Hot Pockets, Doritos, and energy drinks that fuel their real-life gamer counterparts. Their basement dwelling is not in an anti-crime bunker but in their mom’s house. In real life, the men and women working in tech are largely metrosexual. Despite being by definition potential remote workers, they mostly live in the world’s largest cities (in Asia) or medium-large, hip American cities like San Francisco and Austin. The IT women wear space buns while the IT men wear man-buns. The IT women keep their gadgets in their handbags while the IT men keep their gadgets in their manbags. 

E-man 

At the same time, many technologically proficient men are not willing to trade in their traditional mode of masculinity to conform to this narrow-hipped stereotype. He does not embrace toxic masculinity or old-fashioned machismo. E-man is not He-man. He is free to choose either a waxed mustache or a mountain man beard – or neither. E-man is both special and mainstream. He has arrived. He does not need to show off. So how does he express himself?

Small is Beautiful

The trend in technology has been towards smaller sizes for some time. At the same time, certain limits have been reached. Flip phones are smaller than smartphones, but we prefer the larger size because we want a larger screen and to be able to scroll through more menus. Regardless of the size trend in the future, E-man will not need to show off with size. Bigger is not always better.

Comfort

Nonetheless, E-man will not hesitate to use something more efficient and handier just because of how others view it. A perfect example is a cell phone holster. It is not that E-man is embarrassed to hang his cell phone out of his skinny jean’s back pockets like a tween at the mall. But he knows that a holster is better at preserving and protecting his device, avoiding butt-dials, and generally more convenient. They can be combined with wallets and travel wallets and can be worn on the hip or the shoulder.

Individual

Some E-men will prefer traditional, elegant, executive black when it comes to color. Others may prefer neon orange – not out of nostalgia for the Apple iMac, but because it is easier to spot in a black carry-on suitcase or in the dark of night. Each E-man expresses himself as he feels. He is not of the herd. He is the trend. 

Barcode scanners are a must-have device in sectors, such as health, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, hospitality, retail, warehouse operations, and transportation. They are reliable in streamlining processes, thus saving resources and time, eliminating human mistakes, and effortlessly controlling inventory systems. Given all the operations they are designed to facilitate, it is critical to keep them in their best condition. 

Have you ever had an experience with a faulty barcode scanner in the middle of checkout or other operations? Then you understand why this device requires ultimate care to prevent unforeseen breakdowns. Routine maintenance for barcode scanners prevents repairs and replacements. Keep your barcode scanner operational with these maintenance tips:

Mind How You Carry Them Around

Handheld barcode scanners are prone to accidental dropping, which can impair them. Occasionally, the damage may be repairable, and other times heavy falls may render them useless. To mitigate this, consider investing in barcode scanner belt holsters that are easy to fix on your pants’ belt loops. A holster can hold your scanner in place when you are not using it. Having it around your waist also enables easier retrieval and putting back. Besides using a holster, cargo pants or a jacket with deep pockets can also secure your scanner nicely. 

Routine Cleaning

A misreading scanner could be a sign that the lens is dirty. Barcode scanners harbor dirt, debris, and bacteria during operations. Germs accumulate in your hands when you touch things, and these are transferable to the scanner. The reading window or lenses are also susceptible to moisture, dust, and fingerprints. These elements can make your scanner inoperative if cleaning is not prioritized.

Ensure your device is off before cleaning or remove the battery. Use scanner-approved cleaning solutions and a microfiber fabric to clean all parts of your barcode scanner. Check the listed cleaning solutions from the scanner’s manufacturer manual. Wipe gently to avoid scratching the lens, and refrain from pouring any solutions directly on the gadget. Utilize a disinfectant to get rid of all the bacteria. If you have a hard time cleaning your barcode scanner, consider taking it to a professional cleaner at least twice a month. 

Proper Scanner Storage

How you store your barcode scanner after a long day’s work could either ruin it or maintain its functionality. Exposure to sunlight and high temperatures can damage your scanner. Storing it in a damp area can cause a malfunction. Always keep your barcode scanner in a dry place and away from extreme temperatures. Use a clean microfiber fabric to wipe away liquid drops that may come into contact with it. More importantly, store it in a place with less foot traffic to prevent human interference.

Professional Repairs

Some scanner issues are easy to diagnose and fix, for instance where the batteries aren’t properly configured. However, some profound problems can only be diagnosed and repaired by professional repairers. At times scanner issues can be more complex than you perceive and that is where an expert’s comprehensive assessment comes in handy. For example, you should take your scanner for a professional diagnosis if it beeps but fails to transmit data. Professionals will advise you accordingly on whether a repair will fix the scanner, or if an entire replacement is a way to go.

Protect and Secure Your Barcode Scanner 

Are you struggling to carry your barcode scanner around, making it vulnerable to accidental falls? e-Holster company has suitable barcode scanner belt holsters for cradling your gadget when not in use. Contact us today for more details on how our range of holster products can help you and your team work efficiently.

Working a warehouse, inventory, or logistics job is often serious physical work. Many would say it’s one of the best workouts of your life, but it’s also a work you want to do with endurance and a full set of stabilizer muscles. Gaining these muscles solely through cargo work can put you at risk of injury if you need to torque or lose your grip on a difficult package mid-lift. If you want to rock the loading dock and retrieve heavy packages from high shelves like a freight-lugging hero, then it’s time to hit the gym. What are the best weight lifting exercises to help a warehouse or logistics worker get stronger for safer lifts and better performance on the job? Aside from good old-fashioned cardio, we found the five lifting exercises that will give you everything you need to boost your strength and improve your lifting safety.

Best Weight Lifting Exercises for Warehouse Muscles

There’s no doubt that heavy lifting exercises can build both primary and stabilizer muscles for your lifting work on the job. Power-lifting the right way, with the help of an outlined program or the support of a trainer at your gym, is the best way to power up hauling boxes. Here are the best heavy lifts to boost your cargo-hauling performance.

If power-lifting, go to your maximum weight and do five sets of five, spaced 10-15 minutes apart.

For endurance lifting, deload to your best full-motion weight and try for longer sets. Full motion might mean a curl up to your chest or a squat nearly to the ground.

1. Squats

Squats build your leg and back muscles with every lift. To do a heavy squat, start with a power cage and a padded squat bar across the back of your shoulders. Hold the bar to stabilize on both sides. Align your feet at shoulder width and lift the bar off the safeties. Squat as low as you can and come back up.

2. Deadlifts

Deadlifts are the perfect way to build your from-the-ground lifting muscles. To do a deadlift, crouch with the bar in front of you, feet shoulder-width apart. Your knees will extend over the bar. Brace yourself and lift with your legs, then straighten your back as you complete the lift. Squat carefully to set down the bar and repeat.

3. Rows

Rows, especially bent-over rows, are lifting the way you “shouldn’t” on the warehouse floor – lifting with your arms and back instead of your legs. You want to practice these because at that moment when you do lift with your back, you want those muscles and stabilizers already built up. Bent over rows can prevent warehouse injuries.

To do a bent-over row, place the bar on the ground and bend over it, with your knees only slightly bent. Reach down and grasp with your hands and pull up with your elbows. You will feel your back and shoulders doing most of the work. Lower until your arms are straight and repeat. Squat to place the bar down.

4. Overhead Presses

Sometimes, heavy boxes are shelved above your head. Overhead presses will help build those muscles you need to safely retrieve or place overhead inventory. To overhead press, set the bar on the outside of the power rack at about chest level, below your shoulders. Brace your feet shoulder-width apart and grasp the bar. Bend your knees slightly and lift the bar above your head, past your nose. Lift to full extension without locking your elbows and bring it back down below your chin before repeating.

5. Kettlebell

Kettlebell lifts help you deal with the grasp and center of gravity variables of dealing with irregular cargo. A full kettlebell routine, especially swings and hand-passes, will help build those core stabilizer muscles in your back, sides, and shoulders that you need for irregular cargo and loading twists.

Stay Fit, Stay Safe, Boost Performance

Hitting the gym is one of the smartest things you can do to prevent injuries and power up your performance when working with cargo. For more great warehouse and logistics success tips or to find the holsters your team needs, contact us today.

Barcodes have made life so much easier for businesses around the world. You no longer need to manually type in a product’s price or shout it across the room to your coworker. All you need is a barcode scanner and you’re set! While all this technology has given us some conveniences, it’s also created many new opportunities for error. That’s why it’s important to know how to avoid these common scanning errors.

1. Inadequate Training

One of the most common causes of barcode scanning errors is inadequate training. If your employees are not properly trained on how to use the barcode scanner, they will likely make mistakes that can lead to errors.

Make sure that you take the time to train your employees on how to use the scanner properly. This includes showing them how to position the scanner, how to hold it, and how to read the barcodes.

2. Poor Scanner Quality

Barcode scanners come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s important to choose one that’s right for your needs. If you’re scanning small items, for example, you’ll need a smaller scanner. If you’re scanning large items, you might need an industrial-grade scanner.

You also need to make sure your barcode scanner is properly calibrated. If it’s not, it might not be able to read barcodes correctly. 

Remember that not all scanners are created equal, and cutting corners in this area can lead to massive headaches in the future.

3. Damaged Barcodes

A damaged barcode can cause scanning errors and lead to incorrect product prices or even product returns.

Check the barcode before scanning it. Make sure there are no rips, tears, or smudges that could prevent the scanner from reading it correctly.

Store barcodes in a cool, dry place. Extreme heat or cold can damage barcodes, so it’s important to keep them stored in a temperature-controlled environment.

4. Software Issues

There are a few different software issues that can cause problems with barcode scanning.

One of the most common problems is the way that some barcode scanners handle blank spaces. If a scanner encounters a blank space, it will often stop scanning until the space is removed.

To avoid this problem, make sure that you remove any blank spaces from your barcode before scanning it. You can do this by using a text editor to remove the spaces or by using a barcode scanner that can handle blank spaces.

Incorrect symbology settings causes another common problem. Most barcode scanners come with a default symbology setting that should work for most barcodes.

However, if you are using a specific type of barcode, you may need to change the scanner’s symbology setting to match the type of barcode you are using. For example, if you are using an EAN-13 barcode, you will need to change the scanner’s symbology setting to EAN-13.

If you are not sure what symbology setting to use, consult the documentation for your barcode scanner or contact the manufacturer for help.

5. Dirty Barcode Scanner

If your scanner is not clean, it can prevent the barcode from being read correctly.  Scanners easily acquire dust and debris. Oil from the handler can also cause issues. Make sure to clean your scanner regularly to avoid this issue.

Barcode scanners are an essential part of any business that relies on them for inventory and point-of-sale purposes. However, like any other piece of technology, they are not perfect and can sometimes make mistakes. The suggestions above can help prevent common errors. We hope you found this article useful and your business continues to grow and prosper.

When you work daily with a barcode scanner, the charging station is an essential part of the routine. Every day, you pick it up from the charger and every break and evening, you set it back to charge back up. Depending on your scanner model and work schedule, your scanner may hit the charger once a day or several times a day to keep them topped up.

But what do you do when you pick up your scanner and it’s not charged? A barcode scanner out of batteries can be a disaster for your routine. It could even put your daily work at risk. Fortunately, you’re not out of solutions just yet. Here are a few ways you can solve an uncharged barcode scanner when you need to start scanning.

Sign Out a Charged Barcode Scanner

The first and best solution would simply be to take a scanner that did connect with the charger overnight. If your team has an extra scanner – or perhaps if a team member is not present that day – you may be able to use a charged scanner while your usual scanner recharges, now properly connected.

If you sign out scanners or your barcode scanners are assigned, be sure to check with the team supervisor before swapping scanners and sign for the scanner you take, if necessary.

Plug Into a Portable Pocket Battery

So maybe you have one assigned barcode scanner and your scanner was the one that didn’t charge. Do you have a pocket battery or portable charger? A portable charger is a power bank the size of a phone, small remote, or heavy credit card. The larger pocket batteries often have several types of connection. One may provide the right power port for your barcode scanner.

Simply slip the portable charger into your pocket or your phone holster and connect it to your barcode scanner. This way, you can charge up the scanner on the go, then put both the scanner and the portable battery charging from wall socket power during your next break.

Pushing the Power Cart

Some teams have a power cart with an internal battery that can charge scanners in motion. If you happen to have a charge cart, let everyone else take their scanners and roll plugged into the charge cart for the first hour or two of your shift. This should give your scanner enough juice to keep going until it can sit on the charger over lunch.

Work Alongside a Friend

If all else fails, use the buddy system. You can often get close to your usual workload done by working together with a coworker whose scanner properly charged overnight. Use a long belt tether and pass the scanner between you. You can also split the work so that they do all the scanning for shared and adjacent tasks.

Check Your Connection at the Next Barcode Scanner Recharge

If your scanner wasn’t properly charged this morning, there’s a chance there is a faulty cable, connection, or power port in the equation. Check your barcode scanner carefully the next time you plug it in to charge to make sure it will be fully powered the next time you return. 

If you do find a loose port or power lead, let the team know so you can work together to keep the one charger/scanner/cable working properly or replace the damaged parts.

When your barcode scanner is out of battery at the wrong moment, it could cause serious problems to your workflow. With these solutions or a spare charged scanner, you can get back into your routine with little to no delay.

You have just landed a new job in retail, manufacturing, or logistics and your primary tool is a handheld barcode scanner. All-day, you will be beeping tags, entering information, and generally keeping track of stuff that needs scanning. But when you’re not holding your barcode scanner, your boss has indicated it should be in your belt holster.

One problem: You don’t wear a belt. Like most practical people below the age of 50, you probably wear stretch-capable modern fabrics. Whether you’re wearing skinny jeans or modern slacks, most business casual wear doesn’t include the kind of sturdy waistline and wide belt loops necessary to actually carry a holstered scanner on a belt all day. What do you do?

1. Wear the Belt Without Loops Like a Cowboy

On that first day, you just might not have the right pants or belt loops for your belted holster. If you have a spare belt, simply loop it around your waist without belt loops like a cowboy. It’s okay if your barcode scanner and holster sag to one side, at least for one day. While this may not be the right ergonomic balance for months of scanner carrying, an unlooped belt holster is definitely better than no belt at all.

2. How to Wear a Belted Holster

There are two ways to put your barcode scanner holster onto the belt, and it depends on the kind of clip you have.

Clip Holsters: Wear the Belt, Clip the Holster

Clip holsters have a small metal clip that slides down from the top onto the belt. These are the easiest to put on and rely on gravity plus clamping power to stay on the belt. With it, you can put on your belt, then simply slide the holster onto the side of your choice.

Loop Holster: Thread In the Holster as You Loop the Belt

If your holster has a loop fastener, you will need to thread it onto the belt as you put the belt on. Loop the belt around yourself until you reach the hip where you want to hang it. Then, between belt loops, thread the holster, and then complete looping and fastening the belt.

3. Utility Belt Wearing Tips

Never Skip a Belt Loop

Take it from pros who have worn more than a few toolbelts; never skip a belt loop. These are strategically placed to distribute weight over your hips to prevent pain, discomfort, or uneven holster support. Skipping just one loop is more unpleasant than you’d think.

Secure One Notch Tight

When securing a belt to use for utility and holster support, fasten it one notch tighter than usual. Pull one setting further than a comfortable pants tightness to provide support for the weight of your barcode scanner and holster.

Pull back, then forward to secure.

4. Invest in a Few Pairs of Sturdy Work Pants – and Belts

It is very normal to start your first real warehouse, retail, or logistics job without the right pants. Few people realize that belt loops are a career prerequisite, and most young professionals are not in the habit of wearing heavy pants with a sturdy belt. They just make everyday pants that hold on better these days.

So you may need to invest in two or three new pairs of pants with wide-sturdy belt loops and belts to go with them. Definitely try a few on to find pants-and-belts combinations you can wear comfortably all day with a barcode scanner holster at your hip.

5. Try the Holster on Your Left and Right Side

Finally, don’t forget to test your most comfortable position. You may find that you prefer it on either the left or the right side. This can relate to your dominant hand, keeping it out of your way, and building a workflow. Some even prefer the back holster approach, centering the scanner weight in the small of their back, while others mix it up completely with a chest holster instead.

If you are starting your first job wearing a belt and holster, don’t worry. You’ll get used to the belt and the weight at your hip soon enough and focused on rocking your new role.

Help your servers stay organized and do their work more efficiently with the e-Holster utility belt organizer. This large restaurant server apron is designed to provide plenty of space for storage of work items while being comfortable to wear. Combining the best features of a shoulder bag and apron, the e-Holster server apron is fully adjustable. It also allows servers to wear it in several different ways. 

Five Pockets for a Variety of Storage Needs

The e-Holster restaurant apron has room for everything a server may need with five pockets of different sizes. The large open-top server pouch is 8.5 inches wide and 8 inches long. This pocket has enough room to fit a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, iPad Mini, or a POS system. Smaller server books, phones, and other work items will fit easily in the medium open-top pocket, which measures 6 inches wide and 6.5 inches long. Two smaller open-top pockets, measuring 2 inches wide, are perfect for organizing tall thin items, such as straws or pens. A server can also keep their cash on hand for making change and storing tips with the closed-top pocket. This pocket keeps items secure but easily accessible with a Velcro flap.

Versatile and Comfortable to Wear

The e-Holster server apron comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. This heavy-duty nylon strap is 1.5 inches wide and can extend from 27 inches to 48 inches long, making it usable for servers of any size. There is a soft rubber shoulder pad that prevents the strap from slipping off while also making it more comfortable to wear, even for longer shifts. The strap is secured with clips, so it can be removed quickly and easily as desired.

This restaurant apron can also be worn around the waist. Constructed of the same heavy-duty nylon, the waist strap expands from 31 inches to 50 inches and has a quick-release clip. There is an additional Velcro closure flap that the server can use to store the waist strap when it is not in use. 

Designed to Withstand Heavy Use

The e-Holster restaurant apron and its straps are constructed with ballistic nylon for extra durability, so even the busiest restaurant server can expect it to last. The seams are sewn with industrial stitching that can withstand the rigors of the job without tearing. A server can fill the pouches with everything they need to perform their job while being confident that the apron will remain fully intact.

Convenient

Servers can tend to restaurant patrons attentively and quickly by keeping everything within easy reach with this product. The multiple pockets keep things organized so you can find them immediately. They also provide a secure place for the storage of more expensive items. This reduces the likelihood of electronics or cash being misplaced while leaving the server’s hands-free to carry other items or perform necessary tasks. The apron also reduces the amount of time and walking necessary to tend to customers by storing items needed for service right at hip level. Lastly, the multiple options for wearing this restaurant apron, along with the adjustable straps, ensure that the server remains comfortable while working and reduce arm and shoulder fatigue.  

The e-Holster restaurant server apron is a great tool for servers. Designed with restaurant work in mind, it allows them to perform their duties efficiently while staying organized.

At e-Hostler, we pride ourselves on creating innovative products that make work and life more manageable. This is why we are excited to share our new magnetic wristbands. This innovative product will make life easier around the house and on the job site for many tasks. Here is everything you need to know about your next favorite tool accessory. 

How Does It Work?

Materials

Our magnetic wristbands work so well because they are built to tackle any situation. The inside is layered with a soft mesh, making it comfortable to wear all day. The outside is made of ballistic nylon, so it can take anything the job site has to throw at it. Built into the band are 15 magnets that can hold anything from the tiniest of nails to large lag bolts. In addition, pockets are sewn to hold non-metal objects like anchors and wire connectors. 

Attachment

This product is designed to be so easy to put on that you can do it one-handed. The velcro strap makes it perfect to fit any sized wrist, and you can make it as snug or loose as you want. Not only it is comfortable and convenient to wear on your wrist, but it can also be strapped onto your belt if that is a better fit. 

What Are the Benefits?

Never Lose Materials

One of the most annoying parts about working on any project is when you are on top of a ladder and drop the one screw you need to the ground. Our magnetic wristband ensures you won’t ever drop or misplace materials while working on a project. It is estimated that construction companies lose hundreds to thousands of dollars annually from employees who waste work time searching for missing materials. 

Safer and More Ergonomic

Keeping all of your materials in one place that is easy to reach makes for a safer work environment for you and anyone else around you. It’s also easier on your body not to reach everywhere to grab materials or crawl up and down a ladder whenever you need more materials. Ladder injuries are a significant cause for concern on the job, so reducing the number of times you have to climb up and down will minimize the injury potential. 

Frees Up Your Hands

A magnetic wristband frees up your hands to do other essential tasks, which is a massive benefit on the job site or for the weekend DIYer. For example, anyone who has ever taken on a project knows how annoying it is to try to balance everything you need while holding a power drill. With the magnetic wristband, you can easily hold a drill or hammer in one hand and grab whatever you need off the opposite wrist at the same time. 

Saves Time

A quick project can turn into a day or more when you have to keep climbing down and up a ladder every time you need a few more screws and anchors. However, having everything you need at your fingertips cuts down on wasted transit time and allows you to get the job done faster and move on to the next.

One of Those Things

A magnetic wristband is one of those things that you didn’t realize you needed until you have it. There are so many benefits that you’ll probably find a few that we haven’t even thought of yet. Whether you are a DIY expert or a professional looking for a way to be more productive, you will love the convenience of our magnetic wristbands. Be sure to check out our phone and tablet holsters to make life on the job even easier.

Field services, no matter your specialty, involve sending technicians out to local homes and businesses to perform maintenance and repairs. This means taking your workshop on the go. Anywhere can become your workspace. This means that keeping track of your hardware and keeping small tools on your person becomes essential. Every field services technician learns tricks of the trade over the years. Little hacks make a world of difference when it comes to streamlining your troubleshooting, repairs, and post-repair cleanup. Among the toolbelt packing tips and the spare parts to have on hand, technicians often learn the incredible use of a few good magnets.

Magnets can work wonders on the field service route if you know how to use them. Here are six clever ways to improve your field services workflow with the use of a magnet in the right place at the right time.  

Pick Up Lost Screws With a Magnet on a Chain

Dropping a screw can be one of the most frustrating experiences in appliance and carpentry repairs. A lost screw can slow down your entire operation and you might have to take the cabinet apart to get it back – unless you have a strong magnet and long chain, cord, or twine.

A magnet on a string or chain can be lowered into a small space to help you pick up lost screws without bending over, reaching into a tight space, or opening up the entire appliance to get the screw back.

Extract Stuck Batteries With a Magnet

When batteries are stuck in a device, getting them out can be a pain. Few devices still have the removal ribbon and prying out batteries wearing work gloves is a no-go. A strong magnet will do the trick, however, Use a magnet on the positive end of your batteries – the side not embedded in a spring, to help pull stuck batteries out of any device. This is also a safer approach than directly handling a corroded battery.

Hold Onto Screws With a Magnetic Wristband

Just like a magnetic screwdriver can hold onto one screw for you, a magnetic wristband can hold onto several. In fact, a strong magnet in a wristband is the ideal accessory for any technician working with small, ferrous parts and tools. You can line up several screws to quickly install in sequence, place screws you’ve just removed onto your wristband for quick retrieval, and keep track of the nuts for your bolts. You can even dock small, lightweight fallen wrenches and tiny hand tools to the magnetic wristband to streamline your workflow.

Magnet Fasten Notebooks and Tablet Covers

Keep notebooks and tablet covers closed with a small magnet and metal panel hot-glued onto each side. Magnetic closures are a life-saver when it comes to keeping your paperwork from blowing away in the wind and neatly closing your tablet cover between uses. Magnetic closures prevent flapping, things getting hooked in bad layers inside your bag, and other common inconveniences.

Find Wall Studs With a Strong Magnet

A strong magnet can help you find wall studs before installing something in a home. Wall studs are either strong points for a heavy installation, or typically hard-to-impact points to avoid for lighter installations. A strong magnet will identify the nails in the wall stud for stud finding on the go.

Catch Plumbobs With Large Flat Magnets

Finally, a strong magnet can help you catch plumbobs when running lines and wires. Many elements of technician work require running something behind a wall or appliance panel, dropping it, and pulling it out again. Place a ferrous object at the end of your plumbob drop and catch it with a strong magnet placed on the floor or the bottom of your workspace. This can make dropping, threading, and wiring much easier.

Magnets are a marvel of efficiency in field services if you know how to use them. Equip your team or yourself with the right magnets to streamline your on-the-job workflow and make certain difficult tasks much easier. Contact us today for more equipment ideas, magnet wristbands, or holsters and tablet carriers for your field services team.

A restaurant server apron has many benefits. Employees use them for sanitary reasons and to protect themselves from stains and spills.

While most people use aprons for practical reasons, restaurants increasingly embrace them as branding and personnel identification.

We studied the principal purpose of an apron at E-holster and devised methods to make the restaurant server apron more practical, convenient, and comfortable to wear.

That is why we created a full apron with five pockets, allowing your personnel to carry pens, a server book, tablet, change, and other items needed by a waiter or waitress in their daily operations.

Here are some features;

The utility belt apron from e-Holster helps you accomplish your restaurant chores more efficiently while keeping your hands free. Our restaurant server apron will help you stay organized by providing a spot for everything, so you always know where to locate what you need when you need it.

You may have contemplated providing your personnel with restaurant server aprons to wear. Let’s look at the advantages of employing restaurant server aprons and where you can get them.

Benefits of Restaurant Server Aprons

Here are some advantages you can expect from our high-quality apron, which is custom-made to meet and fulfill your specific company demands.

Make Your Employees Look Good

When your staff connects with customers, they send out two signals unintentionally. The first message introduces them, while the second focuses on the company they work for. Remember that even before a customer orders anything in your restaurant, they get a first impression from the waiter’s attire—and the first impression is irreversible.

Your employee’s appearance is just as crucial as what they’re selling, if not more so. The e-holster apron’s design has a beneficial psychological effect on customers. It is because it contains a reversible shoulder and waist strap that can be hidden behind Velcro, making it look sleek and tidy.

Convenience

Your employees will appreciate the convenience of its pockets. The pockets make it easy to manage pens, guest books, note pads, and tips. Thus the waiter-customer connection is significantly improved.

The E-holster is ideal because it features five compartments that allow you to carry all of your essentials.

Image Projection

Wearing an apron is an excellent method to draw attention to your business and logo. Selecting an apron that will positively represent your company and reflect how you want the general public to see your brand is critical.

Do you want your business to have a contemporary feel to it? Your restaurant’s trademark and emblem are prominently displayed on the e-holster apron. Because there are no neck-straps to block the logos, the apron serves as a full-fledged advertisement for your firm to potential clients.

Reduction in the Number of Incidents and Accidents

Employees in most hospitality businesses and restaurants are not allowed to wear loose-fitting clothing that could cause an accident. Aprons shield your employees’ clothing, uniforms, and skin from fire and accidents, practically inescapable in their work environments.

The apron protects them from burns and other mishaps. This is especially true when the apron is composed of robust materials like the E-holster restaurant server apron.

Our apron is made of tough ballistic nylon that combines with industrial stitching. Withstanding the demanding daily duties of a server or waitress, you can anticipate the apron to last a long time.

Aprons may be required if you work in the hospitality industry, particularly in the food and restaurant industries. Leaving it up to your employee’s choice could be hazardous to your restaurant’s reputation. Buy your apron today.
