Tamper Evident Security Seals and Security Labels for Retail Stores

Retail theft is a serious problem faced by retail chains, superstores and grocery stores throughout the country. The National Retail Federation states that more than 45 billion dollars are lost every year due to inventory shrinkage. Shoplifting, internal theft, organized retail crime and fraud can have devastating effects on a retail store’s profit margins, and can also create a toxic work environment  for employees and leave customers with a negative shopping experience.

What Types of Tamper Evident Security Seals are Available to Retailers?

Tamper evident security seals, such as our j-Lok Pull 8’’ Pull-tight Seals are important anti-theft products that come with a built-in tear-off feature requiring no tools or special training for removal, and they have a small strap diameter making them ideal for machines with smaller sealing apertures. These seals are used in a wide variety of retail applications, as well as C-TPAT and logistic circumstances. Our tamper evident security seals come in a variety of colors that include white, yellow, blue, green and red allowing team members to use them for coding and organizational purposes. Furthermore, each one is numbered and has a barcode to meet a wide variety of needs, and they come in a number of styles.

Another popular type of tamper evident security seals designed by CONTROLTEK is the m-Lok Padlock Seal. These seals are numbered tamper evident security seals, in the padlock design, and meet the rigorous standards and approval of the U.S. Customs. Each m-Lok Padlock Seal has durable metal hasps allowing it to withstand any abuse that might occur in transit, and it is water-resistant giving it an extra layer of security. Each of these tamper evident security seals come with the option of barcoding, and they are individually numbered.

When it comes to tamper evident security seals for protecting cash being transported to and from Automated Teller Machines (ATMs), CONTROLTEK has designed the ArrowLok ATM Cassette Seals. Our ATM security seals attach very easily and quickly while deterring theft. These ATM security products are ideal for any setting where ATMs are operated. These tamper evident security seals for ATM use work quite simply, yet they are highly effective at preventing theft. The ArrowLok ATM Cassette Seals are a single piece made from heavy duty plastic where the capsule is affixed to a locking anchor by a durable thread. When the capsule is under pressure and the anchor is inserted, one cannot remove it without leaving a clear sign that the device was tampered with.

If you are looking for tamper evident security seals that are extremely durable and adjustable, our all metal construction cable seals are likely your best option. Each seal has a visible number that can’t be missed, along with a noticeable barcode for fast, simple detection. The cable is very easy to use and can be adjusted to fit a broad range of sizes.

What are Security Labels?

There are many retail management teams that have yet to hear about security labels. In fact, many wonder how something as seemingly simple as a label can help deter theft. A security label is a type of sticker label that serves the purpose of improving a product’s security when it is applied. Security labels can act as a visual deterrent, and they can be used to trace and track an item’s location. Security labels can also be used to help prevent counterfeiting, and it also serves the purpose of proving that it (and therefore the product) has not been tampered with, as one can easily tell by looking at a security label if someone attempted to remove it.
