The Stainless-Steel Wing Bands (Style 890-4SS) or Aluminum Wing Bands (Style 890-4AL) can easily be spot welded shut with a small spot welding machine. Below is a video showing how to spot weld your metal wing bands. Spot welding your wing bands shut helps to provide a tamper-resistant seal so that the band cannot be taken off and used again.

How do you plan to attach your tags?

“How do you plan to attach your tags?” That’s our favorite question that seems to stump customers.

There are multiple ways that you can attach a tag depending on your application. We offer a variety of fasteners to meet your identification needs. If you plan on hanging your tag we offer multiple lengths and materials from ball chains, to custom length steel wires, to plastic cable ties. If you plan on mounting your tag, adhesive backing is available, but limited to aluminum tags and certain sizes only.

Other fasteners that we do not currently carry but can be used to attach tags are pop rivets, welding, nails, screws, and more. If you are planning on using your own fasteners, make sure to get the correct hole size when ordering your tags.
