Attach the tag with clear packing tape to a flat surface. If tape will damage the item or packaging, use a zip tie to attach the tag. Be sure to reinforce the tag with a small piece of clear packing tape on the corner before punching a hole for the zip tie. Tags that aren’t reinforced with tape easily tear off.
Owners manuals, removable parts, extra cords, etc. can be placed in ziplock bags & attached to the item with zip ties. Reinforce the bag with packing tape before you hole punch the bag.
When grouping items together such as sports gear, toys with multiple pieces, etc. securely attach all parts together with zip ties or packaging tape and use only one tag. Make sure the tag includes a description of all parts in case they get separated, i.e. “Fisher Price Tree House with 2 fences. 3 pieces.”
