Globe Guard® Reusable Box Sealer – temporary closure for RSC style shipping and storage boxes

Globe GuardV Reusable Box Sealer


Since first launching our patent pending Globe Guard® Reusable Box Sealer, we have discovered many new applications and uses for it thanks to our customers’ ideas and suggestions.

The fact is that anytime you need to hold a traditional RSC style shipping box closed temporarily because you plan to go back in and out of the box, box sealing tape (even ours) is the wrong solution. For applications where reuse and repacking are certain, the Reusable Box Sealer is ideal because it is inexpensive, easy to use and adds lives to every box it is used on.

Display Packaging and Unpacking – Plico Designs, a good customer in Australia, displays their art items at many conferences, shows and corporations. They use the Globe Guard Reusable Box Sealer (see photo at right) to hold the top flaps of the box closed because it makes unpacking and eventually repacking easy, saving time and money. The fact that the same boxes can be used repeatedly is icing on the cake.

Sample Storage — The GGRBS is perfect for sample storage, because who wants to send out a dusty sample to a potential customer? Being able to quickly close and reopen a box makes it far more likely that sample order pickers will be shipping only clean samples to your potential customers.

Light Sensitive Inventory – A number of different products ranging from pharmaceuticals/nutriceuticals to certain types of paper are light sensitive and may lose important performance benefits with prolonged exposure to light, even the artificial type. The ability to easily reclose a box and block out the light can save money and maintain quality.

Good Housekeeping – The GGRBS may not have the “seal of approval,” but customers like the way it makes open inventory look neat and organized. A customer recently needed to “straighten up” before a major facility inspection, and the GGRBS got the job done.

Closing Plastic Corrugated Boxes – Expensive die charges and delays can be avoided by utilizing a less expensive RSC-style design and the GGRBS to hold the box closed. This prolongs the usable life of the reusable corrugated box because it eliminates the ugly and expensive layers of tape that are usually used for temporary closure and often times bring the box to a premature end.

Those are just a few of the many possible uses for this unique and valuable packaging aid. Check out this video to see how it works, and contact Salazar packaging if you think you have a potential application. The Globe Guard® Reusable Box Sealer is a stock item and available in an inexpensive starter/trial size for your testing and evaluation.
