Ideal for tagging hard goods
The new, highly reliable Avery Dennison V-Tool Fastening System efficiently applies loop-fastened tags to belts, handbags, wallets, sunglasses, sporting goods, kitchen utensils, appliances - and much more.
The V-Tool does not require goods to be penetrated with an insertion needle. Instead, the system has a dual hook and tag-holder applicator that meets the tag fastening needs of varying items. The unit's hook applicator wraps around selected areas of targeted items, such as a handbag's shoulder strap. The tag-holder applicator is designed to apply looped fasteners to smaller diameters, such as the zipper pull on a wallet or purse. Fasteners come in 2, 3, 4 and 5-inch lengths.
The labor-saving application process is completed in a single step. V-Tool tags up to 50 items with one clip of fasteners.
The system eliminates the need to use time-consuming, hand-applied fasteners or string, hard-to-handle clips or dangerous pins to achieve loop-type fastening. The system's tamper-evident plastic loop fasteners have an arrow-and-barrel configuration that forms a strong mechanical lock. The fastener cannot be removed without destroying the loop or damaging the tags.
