Before using Drumclips
Drumclips must be stored in dry, moderately heated conditions and protected from sunlight and mechanical damage. The tool cannot be dried or stored near fire or in places with elevated temperatures. The temperatures at which the Drumclip can be used is between -10 Degrees Celsius and +50 Degrees Celsius.
Check the Drumclip for any damages. In case the Drumclip has been in contact with chemicals or when it is damaged in a different way, do not use this Drumclip anymore.
Check the production date mentioned on the Drumclip. You cannot use the Drumclip when the production date is more than two years old. My Drumclips are older than 2 years.
How to use Drumclip
6 steps to a certified and safe solution
Follow these 6 simple steps for a certified and safe solution to transport your drums. Do this and the pallets with drums are now certified according to DIN EN 12195-1:2010 of TUV Rheinland.
Step 1 | Four drums on a pallet

Drums are now secured to pallet and certified according to ISTA 3E Pallet Stability and EUMOS 40509
Step 5 | Put them in the trailer
Step 6 | Secure load to trailer
Place the strap across the drums and Drumclips, so that the strap is between the strap guides of the Drumclip.
Make sure the strap is not twisted. The tension strap should be placed on both sides of the vehicle under the horizontal strap that is secured in Step 3.
Attach the strap hooks to the anchor points and secure the pallets to the vehicle using an ergo ratchet.
