Tyden Ball Seal

We continue our world class security seal series with the Tyden Ball Seal. The Ball Seal is one of the industry standard security seals for securing cargo in transit worldwide for a hundred years. The Ball seal was first designed and patented March 18th, 1913, by Winfred Mudge Brooks (W, M Brooks) in New Jersey. The ball seal is originally called the ‘Snap Seal’ but adopted Ball Seal due it is spherical shape.

For over 100 years the Ball Seal has offered the freight and cargo logistics industries a strong and efficient tamper evident security seal. TydenBrooks have continued to make improvements to the Ball Seal to enhance its security features.

The Tyden Ball Seal is the benchmark and worlds best selling fixed-length metal security seal. And offered the most tamper evident features for an indicative seal. Made from Tin-plated Steel, once applied it cannot be removed or resealed without showing evidence of tampering.

Like the Intermodal bolt seal, The Tyden Ball Seal is another world class security seal. The Ball seal has impacted the security seal industry and been an influence on many companies making copies of the Ball Seal and supplying to different companies.

The Tyden Ball Seal is one of the original security seals in the modern world, originally invented and patented by E.J. Brooks. Some of our audience might be cynical and say to you: “So What!” Which is ok to have an opinion, but when a company offers you a Ball Seal and claims of being a leading manufacturer, remember E. J. Brooks were the original inventors of the Ball Seal.
