Lockout Tags

I chose to do this weeks blog on Lockout Tags.   The  customer that I was speaking with the other day, worked in the oil industry down in Texas.  He was looking for a specific tag that could be hung on to a defective valve, that would warn co-workers from opening it.  I myself not working in that industry had never really thought much about the importance of having a clear, visable warning.   Kind of like an industrial Post-it-Note.

While attempting to locate tags that would fit his application, I was surprised by the large number of tags available.   The common theme on most of the cards I reviewed was the size (6″ X 3″).  For the mostpart, they are manufactured to withstand weather and physical abuse, made of unrippable (is that a word?) vinyl, but have the ability to be written on with a permanent marker.

The one thing that I did note  was that not all of the tags have reinforced grommets on the top of the tag.  There is also a large selection of Bilingual Tags available to meet most applications.

As always, I would encourage you to call our knowledgeable staff here at OpticsPlanet for assistance or to answer any questions that you might have

Thank you for reading my blog.   Your feedback and suggestions are welcomed.
