For Picking, Packing, Filling, Stacking and Transporting Boxes
Box Latch Products is the USA’s leading manufacturer of reusable components for the packaging, warehousing, assembly and supply chain logistics industries. Founded in 2010, our success has been achieved by inventing and patenting two product lines. The first is for closing, reopening and reusing corrugated boxes. The second is to hold flaps down and out of the way to add or remove contents and stacking, storing or transporting them while open.

New B2B Sustainable Supply Chain Solutions
Box Latch™ Products are a Re-Usable alternative to tape, staples, and bands that have traditionally been used to close cardboard boxes. Operations and supply chain managers are able to reduce material costs (corrugated box and tape expenses) by anywhere from 10% to 90% following integration of Box Latch™ Products into their supply chain systems.
The Problem – 90% of all cardboard boxes are used just once & tape is not free
The Solution – Innovative box Re-Use and tape reduction inventions by Box Latch™ Products
Triple bottom line (economic, environmental, and social) benefits can be realized:
- tape reduction/elimination results in less line down time
- promotes cardboard box Re-Use providing huge ROI
- decrease worker injury rate (i.e. repetition motion injuries & puncture wounds)
- faster than hand taping or folding flaps for closing and re-opening
- does not destroy boxes like folding corners, taping, staples
- may be attached to boxes and remain a part of the box for ease in box Re-Use and storage
- elimination of tape = reduction in tape costs
- boxes can be made tamper proof

As a purpose driven company, we’ve noticed that using the Box Latches™ is not only cost and time effective but also positively influencing the working safety as a preventive measure against cuts and bruises from using tape dispensers and box cutters, not to mention the environmental benefits. Implementing the use of the Box Latch™ Products has brought significant betterment into our processes. Personally, I can only recommend to any similar operations: get in contact with Jim, Jack or their company reps at least to test their products.
The seven-hour time distance between the Czech Republic and Wisconsin can make things difficult. However, our communications have always been timely, positive and productive. Hereby I’d like to highlight also the professional, effective and patient support of both gentlemen.
We have used Box Latches™ daily in our warehouse operations for over a year. They are easy to use and do not destroy the box like tape and folding the flaps, thus, we can reuse our boxes, saving money and the environment. They also work great to close and reopen boxes at trade shows.”
We are also pleased with how well their new Clip and Stack product works to save time compared to taping flaps open as we place our finished goods in boxes.
We were astounded to project that we expect to save 1 million meters of tape per year. Even better, we also save the costs of gathering up this temporary, messy tape and disposing of it. It has been a pleasure working with Eco Latch Systems as Jim and Jack have helped VF advance our “no waste,” “Go Green” mission while saving lots of money in the process.”
