VS-1 Retail Security Tethers

Vulcan Spring is a leading designer and manufacturer of the VS-1 retail security tethers. The VS-1 is a compact, attractive way to deliver theft-deterrence and customer convenience for point-of-purchase (POP) displays. These products are also referred to as store display security tethers, security cable retractors and store display recoilers.

Featuring the heaviest cable available in a retail security tether, the VS-1 has a small, low-profile case that holds the retractable cable. It can be mounted on the inside or outside of a display as a functional and aesthetic component of an effective point-of-purchase display presentation. With seven designer colors available, the VS-1 display security tether blends in with any display to create a positive, interactive customer experience. It is particularly well-suited for use with mobile phones and other products of similar size. Vulcan Spring’s VS-1 retail security tethers are rugged and designed for maximum life in demanding store display use.

There are many options for the cable, end fitting, and box. If you do not see an option that you require, please send us an e-mail and we will address your request, or order a stock VS-1.

Custom Retail Security Tethers, Technical Considerations

For many applications, a stock retail security tether will do the job. Where a custom retail security tether is necessary, Vulcan Spring works with customers to engineer a custom solution, often using a stock retail display security tether as a starting point for the new design or prototype.

Vulcan Spring can offer design and engineering support for early-stage product development or can simply provide a quote for the desired quantities of fully-engineered and ready-to-use retail security tether.
