Pairing

Pairing Tool Connect™ enabled products is not available through the web at this time. Please use the Tool Connect™ Site Manager App to pair tools, batteries, tags, and connectors. 

Linking

For tools that are not Tool Connect™ enabled, Site Manager provides an easy way to associate — or 'link' — DEWALT® Tags and Connectors to existing inventory. To link a tool to a Tool Connect™ enabled product, you will need to first pair the connected products to your account using the Site Manager app (for more information on Pairing in the app, see the section below). 

Once Tool Connect™ products have been paired to your account, on the web, click on the checkbox next to the tool you wish to link,
