Davies, Mary Ann; Smith, John R.. 2008. Improving the Pulaski Sheath. 0823 2347P. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, National Technology and Development Program.

Covers on the orange plastic Pulaski sheath protect users from the sharp ax and hoe toolheads. The strap on the sheath tends to slip through the buckle, allowing the covers to loosen or fall off the toolheads. A section of the plastic strap and the buckle can be cut from the sheath and replaced by 1-inch-wide nylon webbing and a metal buckle that will keep the covers tight on the toolheads.

Keywords: equipment development, fire fighting, firefighting, handtools, retrofits, safety at work, tools
