It turns out that manufacturers of delta slot and euro slot hang tabs are cutting corners by not cutting the corners.
A Common Oversight and convenience of competitor manufacturing is to leave sharp or pointy corners on the top of their Hang Tabs. These sharp corners can cut or hurt customers and staff. We actually have competitors purchase from us when their customers realise this problem.
An inquiry came to us via our ukhangtabs.co.uk website and it was mentioned that they did not want to buy the scotchpad hang tabs because they had pointy corners on the top of the sticky hooks that the client was considering.
None of our hang tabs have sharp or pointy corners and to insure this we need to dedicate more material and care to produce our sticky hooks.
We pointed out to the client the following options:
Ukhangtabs.co.uk has recently upgraded its web site and added a number of small volume pack options for hang tabs. There are also some very low cost freight options for these smaller packs. We are working with clients that might use as little as 500 stick hooks per year up to clients that use more than 5 million hang tabs every year.
Sometimes known as Do-It’s the self-adhesive hooks are applied to products at the point of manufacture as well as the point of sale. In the case of the point of sale application the product is used to get better exposure for products that are not packed to hang sell. Often this measure of applying sticky hooks is done in conjunction with using hang strip. Ukhangtabs.co.uk provides hangstrip in a continuous roll format with perforations for easy cutting to length. You could say hangstrips and hangtabs are the perfect “vertical marketing” strategy to improve line of sight customer sales.
If you are wondering what else – other than pointy corners, will distinguish one brand of hang tabs from another, our simple reply is the dedication of the supplier to do it right. Ukhangtabs.co.uk and Hang Tabs Australia Pty Ltd do not “cut corners”, and do not pepper their hang tabs range with environmentally questionable PVC just to appear to have the cheapest options. All the Hang Tabs we supply are made using PET (not PVC). All the Hang Tabs we supply have been cross tested against Major brand hang tabs like Do It and 3M and demonstrably show equal or significantly improved longevity of hanging with a given set of weights (using standardised adhesive testing methods).
Rather than provide a myriad of sticky hook options with random in-house reference numbers that you need to remember we have plain English common sense names for our hang tabs that are easy to remember and cover the vast majority of hanging applications.
- Euro-Heavy Duty
- Hook-Heavy Duty
- Hang Strip
