I currently use the BD Robo Leashes. When putting in pro I usually dangle my tools. I like the concept of the quick-release leashes, but the stories of them disconnection unexpectantly have me afraid to give them a try. Anybody have any opinions?

I have the BD Androids, which are the quick release tools. I love them-I am leading a grade harder after buying them and the BD plastic biner clip thingies for my screws. They've never come unclipped on me and I don't really see how they could accidentally. I was wary of that too, but I spent 30 minutes in the shop twisting around in them and was never able to do it.

Make sure you use the hose clamp to keep the leash in place-if you do that and make sure the release is oriented away from the shaft of tool I doubt they will ever come unclipped on you.
