Every year, FOD jeopardizes safety on the job and in the air, and is responsible for worldwide aviation industry losses totaling in the billions. That’s why, every year, Snap-on does even more to get FOD under control. Our integrated FOD programs – from tool retention systems to our world-class Level 5 Tool Control system – work to eliminate FOD, increase safety and efficiency, and reduce costs. 


fod ratchets

the riveting case
for our ratchets.

To prevent small parts debris, we designed a ratchet that will keep you absolutely riveted.  Because, for maximum FOD and program conformance, Snap-on built ours with rivets instead of screws so nothing will fall out -  and into your plane.  And, to further prevent debris, the cover plate and reverse lever are permanently affixed to the ratchet.

tape measure

fod prevention
by the foot.

When it comes to FOD prevention, no one measures up like Snap-on.  Where normal tape measures feature screws, our 12' long tape measure comes with recessed rivets that won't fall out.  And, for additional safety, there's a clasp on the rear of the case for use with a universal tether.

fod mirror

the fairest of them all.

When it comes to inspection tools, our FOD mirror is a beauty.  Not only does
it get into tight spaces, but Snap-on designed it with a modified extension
shaft that greatly reduces the chance of the sections pulling apart.  And with
less moving parts, breakage - and ultimately, FOD - is less likely to happen.

tool control

When you have greater control of tools, you have greater control over potential damage.  Snap-on tool control systems are designed to minimize FOD, while maximizing safety, efficiency and productivity.
