Q. Do you offer customizable lockout tags?

You can customize the tag’s signature area which includes the name and department of the authorized lockout-tagout personnel. You can upload a photo of the personnel too. You can also choose between different headers, headline text, colors, striped borders, “tag back” designs, and more for most designs. It’s easy to adjust the font and alignment of your text without paying anything extra for customization. In some of our OSHA Lockout tag templates, you can include a symbol too.

Q. What is the material of your Lockout Tags?


For our simple and popular hang tags, these are three material options: 

EcoTag: These are 10 mil thick. These feel like thin paper but they are plastic which makes them tear-proof. They are not the best bet for wet and greasy environments. These are provided with a sturdy metal grommet.

15 mil Vinyl Tag: These are suitable for dirty, greasy, and wet locations. These tags are noticeably thicker, sturdier. Just like Eco-tags, even these are supplied with the metal grommet which provides excellent pull strength for most applications.

30 mil Sealed Plastic Tags: Semi-rigid and laminated, therefore highly durable, these tags feel like a credit card and stand up to practically any environment. They have a reinforced two-part grommet, a significant upgrade for the best pull strength.

Q. Are lockout tags water-proof?

Yes. Lockout Tags are water-proof. Tags of all thicknesses are resistant to water and other elements like dirt and grease. Water-resistant material is pliable, yet will not crack, distort, shrink, rip, or break down in moisture, and when readily tugged on. For greater water and tear resistance, use the 15 mil thick, self-laminating vinyl tag with a clear polyester flap. Laminating flap protects against moisture, oil, and chemicals.

Q. How can I add an arrow on a custom lockout tag?

You can mention your specific requirement like adding an arrow in the last step of customization called “Special information for my order”. Alternatively, we encourage you to call at (800) 952 1457 for any special element on your tags. Our customer service representative will take your order over the phone and can ask you to send a rough design by email.
