|Avery Dennison Micro Fasteners|
|Avery Dennison's smallest, most versatile fastener, Micro Fasteners save time, labor and money, and offer a better alternative to thread, glue, metal staples and pins. Three tools are available to safely and quickly apply Micro Fasteners to items: MicroTachTM Pistol-Grip Attaching Tool, MicroPinTM; Standard Hook; and MicroPinTM, Extended Hook. Each tool has an outside needle diameter of .047" and employs advanced technology that is gentle on fabric. The small diameter needle delivers a unique T-EndTM fastener that secures items tightly and quickly, yet is easy to remove. Ideal for packaging shirts and dress socks, tagging lingerie, swimwear and other highly elastic or tight weaves; and for packaging soft goods. The Micro Fastener needle is the thinnest needle we have ever created, and it also features a new surface polish technique that further prevents it from damaging fabrics. |
Virtually invisible and customer safe
A quick tug is all it takes to remove a Micro Fastener. Good news when you consider that consumer surveys show that 99% of customers prefer plastic micro fasteners to pins when unwrapping a shirt. For one thing, customers don't have to worry about getting stuck by pins when removing micro fasteners. With a simple tug, the fastener pops free and the consumer is ready to enjoy the product. No hidden pins in the fabric. No sharp pins on the floor. Shirts look better on display, too. Furthermore, no holes in the fabric means merchandise can go back on the shelf, instead of the clearance rack.
Micro Fasteners are supplied 120 per clip for long periods of uninterrupted fastener application and are available in 4 different sizes.
