Tongue & Slot Tags for Electrical Wire Harnesses

What do automobiles, construction machinery, and aircraft have in common? They all have lots of wires inside of them! These wires and cables are all bound together into a wire harness. The cables are bound together by straps, cable ties, electrical tape, conduit, etc., to keep all the wires together in an easy to handle bundle. Wire harnesses make installation of them easier, as well as optimize space. To make sure that you have the correct wires in the harness, or that the harness is correctly put into place, proper identification is key. National Band & Tag’s tongue and slot style tags are perfect for wire harnesses because they come in multiples sizes, and can be customized with your information.

National American Eagle Day

June 20th is National American Eagle Day! This day is used to commemorate the anniversary of the Bald Eagle being selected as our National Symbol, to celebrate its physical recovery to America’s skies, and to observe the American values, ideals, and attributes for which it stands.

On June 20, 1782, the Bald Eagle was selected as the U.S.A.’s National Emblem, and in 1995, the American Eagle Foundation was able to get President Bill Clinton to recognize the first American Eagle Day.

Bald Eagles almost went extinct in the 1960’s due to loss of habitat, but they were brought off the endangered species list in 2007 due to the work of conservationists and strict protection laws. To better learn about eagles and to conserve them is where National Band & Tag comes in with our aluminum Lock-On Leg Bands and Rivet Leg Bands. These custom stamped and numbered leg bands help researchers and conservationist track eagles and learn more about them.

Aluminum Lock-On Bands have a tab that folds over and can be sealed using pliers while the Rivet Band uses pop rivets and a pop rivet gun to seal the rivet band around the bird’s leg. These unique features make these bands great for eagles and other birds of prey.

Bald Eagle: Size 8A or 9
Golden Eagle: Size 9, 9A or 9C

(These sizes are recommended from the USGS Bird Banding Laboratory and should only be used as a guide. NB&T is not responsible for incorrect sizes being ordered based on these recommendations.)

June is National Dairy Month

Before June was National Dairy Month, it started in 1937 by grocery organizations sponsoring “National Milk Month.” By 1939, June became the official “Dairy Month” as a way to distribute more milk during the warm summer months. This month is also used to encourage families to make milk their beverage of choice, and drink more milk for its nutritious benefits.

National Band & Tag provides metal ear tags for dairy farms, dairy associations, DHIA (Dairy Herd Information Associations), dairy cow veterinarians, and genetic companies to I.D. all their dairy cows.

The Round Tag that Meets All Your Needs

Crematory Tags:

COMPANY TYPES: Crematoriums, Mortuaries, Funeral Homes, Pet Cremations

USE: 304 Stainless Steel stamped tags are used to identify both human and pet remains as they go through the cremation process to ensure proper identification at all times. 304 Stainless Steel tags will not melt in the crematorium, so they are able to go in the fire and stay with the remains.

 

Tree Tags:

COMPANY TYPES: Landscape Architecture Firms, Plant Ecologist, U.S. Forest Service, Tree and Lawn Care Services, Lumber Production Companies, Arborist Consultants, Tree & Stump Removal, Arborist/Forestry Supply Stores

USE: There are many types of tree tags available, but a stamped #137 is popular for the above companies because their main goal is to number and identify specific trees. The trees could be numbered for a multitude of reasons, from labeling diseased trees, trees to cut down or save, trees to trim and more. A plain aluminum 137 is durable enough to last outside, while also being discreetly visible on the tree.

 

Dog & Cat Tags:

COMPANY TYPES: Veterinarians, Municipalities, Cities, Counties, Humane Societies, Animal Shelters, Kennels, Animal Hospitals, and Clinics.

USE: Rabies Tags indicate that an animal has had its rabies vaccine. Cities and counties use License Tags to show that your pet has been licensed in that area. General dog and cat I.D. tags are used by animal shelters, humane societies, SPCA’s, etc. to I.D. the animals in that company’s care.
