Eco-PULLBOX® Retail Display Security Tether

The Eco-PULLBOX® is the only “green” security tether product, ideal for product positioning, a theft deterrent for product samples, a counterbalance or a wire harness positioner. The Eco-PULLBOX® helps companies address and embrace new environmental regulations by being the first device of its kind that is biodegradable. The proprietary material used to house the tether wire eliminates an entire source of plastic content that might go into the waste stream. It has similar characteristics to the original PULLBOX® housing material but offers an ecologically friendly alternative for responsible environmental compliance.

Using Vulcan Spring’s Contorque® spring technology, the Eco-PULLBOX® security tether provides consistent, reliable tension at a variety of forces, with many versatile end fittings and a wide range of cables and pull forces. It is offered with a maximum five foot cable and up to two pounds of force.

Custom Eco-PULLBOX® designs can be quickly and cost-effectively manufactured to create the ideal eco-friendly security tether solution. There are many standard options for the cable, end fitting and box.
