Tamper Evident Seals Manufacturer, American Casting and Manufacturing, Provides 7 Alternate Uses for Fixed Length Plastic Truck Seals

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Dec. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Tamper evident seals manufacturer, American Casting and Manufacturing, shares various non-traditional uses for fixed length plastic seals.

Fixed length plastic seals were originally developed for the transportation industry to seal trailer doors. However, their use has expanded. Several industries now use fixed length plastic seals to address a variety of needs, including:

  1. The recording and documentation of animal pelts. New York State regulations require certain animal pelts to be tagged before they are exported. This is done to reduce wildlife exploitation and collect data. In New York State, bobcat, otter, fisher, and marten must be tagged. Other states may require different animal species be tagged, but professionals should plan to tag their pelts prior to transportation. Plastic seals are used to tag CITES or U.S government controlled raw wildlife hides. Fur trapping regulations require tagging of certain animal species to gather information about wildlife conservation. Though rules for tagging animal pelts vary by state, New York State requires pelt sealing for bobcat, otter, fisher, and marten. Pet sealing protects against the over-exploitation of species and aids wildlife management in collecting data and making decisions.
  2. Tree inventory management. Nurseries use fixed length plastic seals to keep track of their tree inventory. This allows them to improve the overall efficiency of their business.
  3. Paring a boat to its mooring. Fixed length plastic seals are often used as mooring tags. Harbormasters issue an annual mooring tag that is attached above the waterline to indicate when a mooring has passed inspection and to identify which boat the mooring is paired with.
  4. The identification of lobster traps. Commercial fishermen are required to label their traps with fixed length plastic seals tags.
  5. Marking equipment that has passed inspection. Heavy duty fixed length plastic seals are used to indicate when safety equipment and gear has passed inspection. Cranes, harnesses, slings, shackles, and hoses are frequently labeled with fixed length plastic seals.
  6. Inventory management. Equipment dealers use fixed length plastic seals to keep track of parts across multiple departments.
  7. Labeling of hides. Taxidermists tag their hides with fixed length plastic seals to keep track of them as they are mounted and tanned.

The versatility of fixed length plastic seals makes them an attractive solution. Professionals can customize seals with any imprint. And, a variety of colors and strengths are available.
