Tethering Guide

tethering-101.jpgAs long as there has been a need to keep handy pens, pencils, keys other widgets of every dimension there has been a need to keep from disappearing. And for those many generations there has also been every conceivable manner of "tethering" things to equipment, counter, retail display, wall, etc. If you are reading this, chances are you are faced with a similar challenge.
