Topp Clips

Product Overview

Thieves can easily access pallets with conventional banding and remove and replace that generic banding with little skill or effort. After the banding is removed, the contents can be removed and/or contraband can be added.

The Topp Clip® system is designed to secure the pallet by indicating tampering or replacement of the original banding. Other applications include banding on other containers such as crates, totes, slip trays, etc.

Once applied, tampering or replacement of the banding is extremely difficult without leaving signs of tampering. THe metal Topp Clip is the only crimp for the strapping. The presence of any other banding crimps indicates tampering.

We offer stock and custom versions.

How Does the Topp Clip System Work?

The Topp Clip® system features 3 components, which together provide both a deterrent and evidence of tampering:

  1. Metal Clip for Banding
  2. Plastic Adjustable Seal
  3. Tamper Evident Warning Label

Each component has a unique serial number. The Tamper Evident Warning Label facilitates recording of the component serial numbers atop the pallet.

The metal "Topp Clip" is the key component of the system. The Topp Clip® is the only crimp needed to secure the banding of the pallet seal system. So the presence of any other banding crimps in the seal system indicates tampering.

A visual inspection protocol is essential to achieve the maximum effectiveness.

  • The shipper should record the serial numbers on the shipping documents.
  • The receiver should verify the component serial numbers and look for other signs of obvious tampering.

After your cargo reaches its destination, you can use the Topp Clip® protected pallets as a storage security tool to help save time when counting items or when taking physical inventory.

Additionally it deters tampering or theft of pallet contents and also avoids repacking for cross-docked or trans-ship freight.

The Topp Clip® system meets the chain of custody specifications of the TSA for sealing CCSF containers.

For added security (and for larger pallets with multiple banding), use two or more Topp Clip® devices and related banding.

A standard tensioner and crimper tool are needed to apply Topp Clips®.

A special hole punch is required to apply the plastic adjustable seal. This punch can be purchased separately. The punch is also a standard item in the 'starter kit' (TCP-50) along with 50 Topp Clip seals.

If using plastic banding, the standard punch is acceptable. If using metal banding, we recommend the Heavy Duty punch.

Customized Topp Clips provide more security. We can include your custom logo, text, serial numbers, colors, etc.

If your pallet also uses conventional crimped strapping to secure the load, for added security use our pallet labels to secure the crimped seals on the strapping.

Installation Instructions

Tools Needed:
- Your strapping tensioner
- Your banding crimper
- A special Topp Clip® Punch

Prior to affixing the Topp Clip® seals, prepare the pallet:

  • As needed to prevent pilfering of one carton from the pallet, use cardboard panels or wood panels on the sides, top and bottom. Other options include shrink wrap, stretch wrap, or a plastic bag.

  • As needed to prevent shifting loads, prepare the pallet with stretch wrap, banding, edge protectors and banding protectors.

Note: Remove the Topp Clip Warning label slowly from the silicone-coated backer material. Removing the label quickly may cause the label to pre-maturely show the hidden VOID message.
