Eco-Latch Systems' Box Latch is an Innovative Sealer

Cardboard boxes are inherently environmentally friendly thanks to their easy recyclability, but the Box Latch from Eco-Latch Systems shows that there's still plenty of room to make cardboard packaging even more efficient. The simple box-closing device preserves the integrity of cardboard boxes and allows them to be reused anywhere between 10 and even 20 times depending on what's being shipped.

The vast majority of products shipped in corrugated cardboard boxes are sealed in with packing tape. While tape is certainly effective in keeping boxes sealed, the material almost always renders boxes useless once they've been opened on the receiving end. The Box Latch securely seals cardboard boxes without any tape, so it can be opened and closed without significantly impacting the box's functionality. This means that the same cardboard box can be used for a dozen or more deliveries in a row without deteriorating, saving both the environment and companies' bottom lines.
