HawkSeal Airline Padlock Benefits

  • When traditional Pull-up seals are secured, they are always under tension at the tear-line point. This is due to the carts movements around the bonds, loading on to the catering vehicles, getting bashed against each other from the bond to the aircraft and back again.
  • Tear lines on pull-up seals can also get caught between carts and break the seal open, resulting in the entire catering bar removed from the route.
  • The Hawk Seal is made of a slim design, to fit flush against the cart to lower the risks of damaging the seal. Its high break strength means it can withstand natural forces pushing against it.
  • Before the aircraft has taken off, if the seal is weakened, it will be easier to open. If the seal is opened, it can be resealed without you knowing.
  • Easy-to-use: Generally cabin crew would use a pen to prize open a traditional pull-up seal to open cart. The Hawk Seal’s ergonomically friendly design allows cabin crew to open the seal with just one finger.
  • Once the Hawk Seal is broken it cannot be resealed or re-used.

Heavy Duty Padlock

The HawkSeal padlock is made from Glass-Filled Nylon Material.

It has a slim body designed to fit flush against the cart. Preventing the seal from getting caught between carts and break open.

Unique 2 Colour Mould

The body infill of the Lock is available in all colours to suit your requirements.

Branded For You

The rear of the HawkSeal offers space for embossing your airline branding. 

Inspection Hole

The front of Hawk Lock has been made with a ‘cut out’ to make it clearly visible when seal is locked in place.

Two-Piece Construction

Grooves in the padlock body, mean only the HawkSeal can used to secure the cart. 

Stainless Steel Metal Hasp

Strong metal hasp made from stainless steel designed to withstand everyday wear and abrasion. 


The Hawkseal is the second part of our reusable airline padlock. The disposable seals use less plastic than a traditional plastic pull-up seal which is an important step towards saving our planet.

Completley Unique

The HawkSeal can be made in any colour to match the operational procedures for the Airlines Inflight Catering.

Tamper Evident

The HawkSeal is so highly tamper-evident, that it shows clear signs of unauthorized access. Once it has been broken the seal cannot be reused. 


Laser Markings

The Hawkseal offers adequate spacing for barcodes, QR codes, company logo, operational codes and sequential numbering.  


The ergonomically friendly design allows the cabin crew to open the seal with one finger. Traditional airline padlocks are 1-piece locking mechanisms, that can be penetrated and resealed without showing signs of tampering. If the seal is tampered with it will break, leaving a clear indication of an attack on that cart.
