PDC released its new Clincher Extra Wide inmate ID wristband line, that features an additional 1/4-inch width to provide a more durable seal around the inmate ID insert. Since 1976, Clincher has been the preferred choice of inmate ID systems for security, classification, and record management at law enforcement facilities nationwide.
Three new extra wide styles have been added to the Clincher product line including Clincher IV Extra Wide, Clincher V Extra Wide, and Clincher RFID Extra Wide. The thicker wristbands, now 1 1/2-inch wide, accommodate up to a 1-inch inmate ID insert and are recommended to be used with PDC’s new 3/4-inch laser or inkjet printable inserts for a stronger sealing option. Laminated Clincher wristbands securely store information on inmate ID inserts such as photos, ID numbers and bar codes. The Clincher IV Extra Wide style features a new bold striped pattern available in black, blue, green, orange, purple, red, yellow and white. For facilities in need of a higher-security option, Clincher RFID Extra Wide includes an RFID microchip, for inmate tracking.
“The Clincher Extra Wide design has made banding inmates much easier and more secure. The wider area ensures the wristband is durably laminated, even if the inmate ID insert is placed slightly crooked,” said Lieutenant Danielle Campfield, Jail Administrator of Baxter County Jail in Arkansas. “The tighter seal also keeps water from penetrating and delaminating the wristband over time. Our busy jailers now spend much less time re-banding inmates, saving time and money.”
Clincher inmate ID wristbands are constructed from a heavy duty, multi-laminate material with single-use locking snaps to ensure inmate data is protected and tamper evident. The bands are available in eight highly-visible colors to classify inmates by offenses, high-risk status and medical conditions. Using bar codes and RFID technology, Clincher helps to streamline operations and improve timely procedures such as inmate transfer, head count and medication administration. The ID system also has photo ID capabilities to aid in visual verification and compatibility with video imaging systems.
