New improved meter security seals


A new improved version of their Metgrip security seal with double anchor to resist meter tampering has been launched by the Kolkata, India-based Safcon Seals Private Limited.

The Metgrip seal is a unique and innovative answer to security problems providing both strength and ease of application and is specifically designed for use on electric and utility meters, with a carefully researched design that makes it impossible to tamper the seal without trace. The seal, designed for single use, must be cut by a cutting plier for removal and once broken cannot be glued or returned to meter. It has a transparent body, enabling internal tampering to be easily detected, and a high rise moulded logo and highly visible non-repeat serial numbering makes each seal unique, so that it cannot be replaced, even by a utility’s own employees.

Other features include:

  • Non-magnetic, non-corrosive stainless steel adjustable sealing wire
  • Quick and easy insertion and easy finger closure, no tools required
  • Durable, able to withstand extreme weather conditions, including long term exposure to sunlight
  • Environmentally safe, with no lead content
  • RoHS compliant.

The Metgrip seal is suitable for all types of electric meters, gas meters, water meters, transformers, demand meters, meter boxes, etc.
