See How Plastic Security Seals Can Help Retail Stores Improve Their Bottom Line This Year

Retail crime is one of the most serious problems facing superstores, grocery stores and retail chains today. According to the National Retail Federation, inventory shrinkage costs the U.S. retail industry over 45 billion each year. Internal theft, shoplifting, fraud and organized retail crime (ORC) can have a crippling effect on a retailers’ profit margins and the overall quality of the work environment for employees and the shopping experience for customers.

Having a forward looking and proactive strategy for preventing, identifying and tracking retail crime is important to the overall success of retailers. From big box chains to specialty stores to small Mom-and-Pop shops, retailers need easy to use solutions for packing their products and reliable ways to secure them against theft, tampering, or misuse. But, because products, displays, and quantities can vary greatly from store to store and season to season, there’s no single, perfect solution. Having a security solutions provider who offers a comprehensive range of products for retail security applications is key.


Plastic security seals have been proven to be the most affordable and efficient security application for retailers. Plastic seals fall into three categories: adjustable length, fixed length or plastic padlock. Plastic seals are often referred to as indicative seals as they “indicate tampering”. These seals are designed to show evidence of tampering and are not a security device, but rather a visual indicator of tampering and thereby can be a theft deterrent. All plastic security seals can be branded, numbered and /or bar coded for extra security. 


Adjustable length security seals allow the user to adapt the seal according to specific size requirement and can fit many applications. The Tug Tight is an ideal security seal for situations requiring varying seal lengths. This one time use tamper evident pull-tight adjustable security seal allows the user to cinch-up the seal according to their specific size requirements. The adjustable length Tug Tight seal is the perfect application for securing tote-boxes and storage cabinets of merchandise.

Fixed-length security seals give a 'click' as confirmation of closure, without having to recheck if it has sealed. This can be particularly beneifical in adverse weather, as the ease of fitting is increased.
