What is a treadmill safety key?

Answer

Safety keys are a vital part of treadmills which immediately stop the belt when removed. They are clipped to the body and plug into a socket near the console. Should the runner be unable to continue or fall, the machine will automatically stop when the key is pulled out. This reduces the risk of injuries while also helping to prevent damage to the machine itself. For machines without a safety key, the only option is to manually turn the machine off or let the cycle stop on its own.
