We only want to keep the necessary!
The Duo-Lok tabs are not delivered in a plastic packaging. We decided to drop this step to further reduce unnecessary waste in this world of over-packaged products. They will now be shipped inside a letter sheet of recycled and recyclable paper that contains information about the product. If you add a Capsul with your Duo-Loks purchase, you will find them at their rightful place inside of Capsul! ;)
Also, when shipped, the package is as minimal as possible: a reusable and recyclable envelope or carton box depending on quantity ordered.
If you still want an individual, recyclable, plastic packaging, you can add it for free, but we find it more interesting to send the Duo-Lok as free as air! Just indicate it in the notes during purchase, right before proceeding to the payment.
What is RFID protection?
RFID means Radio-Frequency-IDentification. Next time you take a glance at your wallet, notice that a few of your cards have a microchip. As you may know, this new technology contains your personal and financial data. It allows you to purchase items without entering your pin. How cool is that?
Well, it surely simplifies your everyday purchases, but what about identity thieves? Anyone walking by can collect your data with a simple smartphone. RFID protection, such as Duo-Lok™ tabs, will allow you to rest easy by blocking any RFID waves trying to scan your cards!
Are credit and debit cards the only ones to have microchips?
No! The RFID technology is embedded within certain passeports (Canada, United States, Australia, and most European Union countries), your corporate ID cards and your driver license might also contain one. The PayPass identification only appears on cards you pay with, but other cards such as mentioned above, might also have RFID technology without any symbol indicating so. Make sure your wallet is protected!
How do I use Duo-Lok™ tab shields?
When you use Duo-Lok™ with Capsul case, it can protect as many as 6 RFID cards when placed in between the two tab shields. If you use Duo-lok™ with your own wallet, insert 1 tab behind each RFID card you want to protect. If your wallet slots allow you to insert 2 cards, 1 Duo-Lok™ tab will be able to protect both of them.
Can I use Duo-Lok™ tab shields with my wallet?
