What are cable seals?

Cable seals are types of security seals or tamper evident seals. Security cable seals have, compared to for instance bolt seals, a more versatile application as the length of the locking mechanism can be variable. Cable seals can be subdivided by the material of the body, like on this page, but also by locking mechanism and adjustability of the length of the cable. There are nonadjustable and adjustable cable seals, such as pull tight cable seals. Moreover, cable security seals can be one time usable, but reusable cable seals exist as well.

Most seals are classified as security (“S”) or high security (“H”) seals according to ISO 17712 standards. High security cable seals are CTPAT compliant and accepted by customs all around the world in ocean freight shipping. High security seals, as the name implies, also add a layer of security to your sealed cargo. All ISO 17712 certified cable seals are numbered on both seal’s body and head in order to prevent substitution of either part.

How to use cable seals?

The installation of this seal is straightforward.

  1. Put the cable through or around the object you want to seal, for instance a trailer door latch.
  2. Thereafter you put the cable’s end into the locking mechanism. Make sure that the cable seal is closed correctly.

How to open cable seals?

After the cable is locked in the security seal’s body the cable cannot be retracted due to the internal locking mechanism. Cable seals can be opened by using a wire cutter.

Various types

In addition to the aforementioned classes cable seals are often grouped by the body’s material. Popular types are plastic bodies, steel bodies and aluminium bodies. The differences in materials result different (breaking) strengths, diverse applications and different prices.


As mentioned cable seals have varying uses, depending on the type of seal. High security cable seals are often used for international cargo transport. Security cable seals are popular for sealing truck trailers, valves, hatches, keeper bars, rail cars and intermodal containers. Our plastic cable seals are much applied in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, as well as in retail. Hence, for each situation or demand a suitable cable seal can be found.


Plastic security seals are alternatives for indicative cable seals. Bolt seals are substitutes for high security cable seals. Both ISO 17712:2013 certified high security bolt seals and cable seals are suitable for international transport.
