We designed hanger tags to help you see all your claim numbers from a distance.
Insert the arrow band into the tag opening, arrow side out. Pull the circle end of the band halfway through the hole.
Hold the tag against the neck of the hanger and pull the arrow through the band circle.
Make sure the coat tag is facing towards you with the tag number right side up as shown in the image.
Pro-Tip: Stretch out the arrow bands to loosen them!
Positioning the kiosk
Position the kiosk as indicated in the illustration. With this ideal location, you’ll experience better customer photos, more accessible access to the tag reader, and superior visibility of the device while assisting customers.
Pro-tip: For permanent placement of your kiosk, use the double-sided PivotTable. For temporary placement, use the single-sided PivotTable which will work as a suction cup.
