Why should I use these safety cables, or whip checks, when using air power?
Answer. When a pressurized air hose becomes accidentally uncoupled, or a hose failure occurs, the quick exhaust of air causes the hose assembly to whip violently, creating a situation that can cause injury to workers as well as other equipment on your job.
