The TICK™ Equipment and Tool Tracking Device allows you to track the location of any item in your inventory, regardless of brand or type

TICK Tool Tracking

For professionals everywhere, tools and equipment are key to their livelihood. Tool loss, and the time spent looking for missing tools, can significantly impact a company’s bottom line.

A single lost or damaged tool on a job site can increase the time spent completing a task by over 30%, which can result in significant overruns on a project schedule and add up to tens of thousands of dollars in wasted labor. The ability to quickly identify a tool’s location can save time and money, not only if a tool is lost, but also if one goes down or is needed on short notice.

Milwaukee Tool’s TICK, a professional-grade Bluetooth tool and equipment tracker, allows industry professionals to better manage their investment, giving them peace of mind knowing they’ll receive updated locations of their tools and equipment—no matter what. Here’s how it works…

ONE-KEY™ Tool Tracking Technology

Equipment and Tool Tracking Device

Products with a TICK attached are paired via the ONE-KEY app. Tool records and locations are updated when any device with the ONE-KEY app comes within 100 feet of the TICK, making them trackable from anywhere in the country.

These location updates are transmitted through any ONE-KEY app that’s in-range, regardless of whether the app is open or not, allowing users to pinpoint missing tools more quickly. In addition, users can easily manage all of their tools through the app’s “Simplified Tool” and “Equipment Management” features.

These features allow users to assign and store detailed information for all of their tools and equipment –whether it’s a tool equipped with a TICK, a ONE-KEY enabled tool or any other tools and equipment.

Durable, Weatherproof Protection

The TICK is small enough to be easily attached and hidden from sight on any product, yet mighty enough to withstand the harshest job site environments.

  • Water and dust-tight enclosure protects internal components from weather elements
  • UV rated plastics prevent brittleness when exposed to extended periods of direct sunlight
  • Rugged electronics housing can withstand high vibration and impact, as well as heavy duty tracking applications

Milwaukee Tool TICK

Versatile, Low Profile Design Made For Any Surface

Securely attach the TICK to anything through glue, screw, rivet or strap. Its flat back enables a snug fit to a variety of surface types and its circular shape fits into a range of places hidden from view; for instance, the underside of a ladder or miter saw stand.

Inventory Management Made Simple, Secure

Each TICK tracker is laser engraved with a serial number so users can easily identify and assign multiple trackers. Once attached and hidden from view, the TICK makes tracking tools and equipment as simple as pulling out your phone.

For protection against potential theft and tampering, you can remove your tools’ locations from the “Nearby Devices” screen, granting access to select users through a secure access code.
