PULLBOX® PLUS Retail Display Security Tether
The PULLBOX Plus security tether is used for retail store display product positioning, as a product sample theft deterrent, as a counterbalance or as a wire harness positioner. The PULLBOX® Plus is equipped with a ratchet type stop that holds the cable in place once it is extended. A quick tug on the cable causes it to retract back into the box. The cable stays loose to allow full freedom of motion for customers and products, and a gentle tug causes the cable to retract to its original position. It is offered with a maximum five foot cable and up to one pound of force. Custom PULLBOX® Plus designs can be quickly and cost-effectively manufactured to create the ideal security tether solution. There are many options for the cable, end fitting and box.
