FAQs

What is a TiltWatch?

TiltWatch is a tip indicating device for goods that must remain upright to ensure intact delivery.

How do you activate the TiltWatch XTR ready for monitoring?

By peeling the adhesive backing from the device, you automatically activate the sensor and can then place it on your shipment.

How many TiltWatch XTR's do I need per shipment?

Two are required to monitor all planes mounted on adjacent sides of the shipment for products that could be tipped over in any direction. If tipping is only possible in one direction, then one TiltWatch XTR is fine.
