Hawk Seal Benefits

  • When traditional Pull-up seals are secured, they are always under tension at the tear-line point. This is due to the carts movements around the bonds, loading on to the catering vehicles, getting bashed against each other from the bond to the aircraft and back again.
  • Tear lines on pull-up seals can also get caught between carts and break the seal open, resulting in the entire catering bar removed from the route.
  • The Hawk Seal is made of a slim design, to fit flush against the cart to lower the risks of damaging the seal. Its high break strength means it can withstand natural forces pushing against it.
  • Before the aircraft has taken off, if the seal is weakened, it will be easier to open. If the seal is opened, it can be resealed without you knowing.
  • Easy-to-use: Generally cabin crew would use a pen to prize open a traditional pull-up seal to open cart. The Hawk Seal’s ergonomically friendly design allows cabin crew to open the seal with just one finger.
  • Once the Hawk Seal is broken it cannot be resealed or re-used.

Hawk Seal - Tamper Evident Seal Insert for Hawk Lock

The Hawk Seal is the second part to the our new re-usable, padlock style, locking system. The disposable seals use less plastic than a traditional plastic pull-up seal that is an important step towards saving our planet.


Totally Unique

Made in several colours to match the operational procedures within the airline and airport.


Tamper Evident

The Hawk Seal is highly tamper evident that shows clear signs of unauthorised access.


Laser Markings

Hawk Seal offers adequate space for barcodes, company logo and sequential serial numbering



The ergonomically friendly design allows cabin crew to open the seal with one finger.

Traditional airline padlocks are 1-piece locking mechanisms, can be penetrated and resealed without showing signs of tampering. If the seal is tampered with it will break, leaving a clear indication of an attack on that cart.
