What is the difference between wire seals and tamper-evident fasteners?

2023-11-28


Wire seals and tamper-evident clasps are two common anti-theft encapsulation tools that have some obvious differences in use and function. Wire seals are usually made of metal wire and can be secured to the ends of the encapsulated object to prevent tampering and opening. Tamper-evident clasps, on the other hand, are devices made of plastic or metal, and they usually have a locking mechanism that, once locked, cannot be easily opened and requires the use of specialised tools to unlock them.

For starters, wire seals are much easier to use. By simply passing the seal through the hole of the encapsulated object and firmly fixing its two ends together, the seal is able to act as an anti-theft device. On the other hand, tamper-evident clasps need to be rotated or pressed to complete the lock, which is slightly more cumbersome in operation.

Secondly, tamper-evident clasps are better in terms of security. They are usually designed with special features, including anti-prying claws, anti-shearing edges and anti-squeeze, which make them more difficult to be tampered with. In contrast, wire seals are less secure because their primary material is metal wire, which can be easily pried or cut.

In addition, wire seals are typically used to encapsulate lighter weight items, such as courier parcels or luggage. Tamper-evident clasps, on the other hand, are used for more critical encapsulations, such as cargo containers, vaults, and electrical equipment. This is due to the fact that tamper-evident fasteners have a stronger structure and are difficult to reopen once the encapsulation has been completed, making them suitable for use in situations where a higher level of security is required.

Overall, there are obvious differences between wire seals and tamper-evident fasteners in terms of usage, safety and scope of application. According to different needs, you can choose the right encapsulation tool to protect the safety of items.

Introduction:This paper will introduce the difference between two common anti-theft encapsulation tools, namely, wire seals and tamper-evident buckles. By comparing their methods of use, security and scope of application, it will help readers understand their characteristics and applicable scenarios, so that they can better choose the right encapsulation tool to protect their items.
