Space Leash

My tool is a chain that would be wrapped around free floating objects to secure them. It is made from individual links and their connecting points are made of mostly triangles. I chose triangles for my design because they are more structurally sound and it makes for no over hangs. I think it is a great tool to print in space because other light apparatuses like this one need to be larger and bulkier to withstand the G's of getting it into space, therefore making it heavier and more fuel consuming. But with objects printed in space can be lighter and smaller.
