TIR represents "Transport International de Marchandises par la Route" and is a Customs Agreement concerning the international transport of goods. TIR cables are commonly used on "Tilt" trailers, open-top containers and in the tarpaulin industry.
The anti-theft TIR cable is typically a plastic coated steel cable which can be threaded through holes located on each curtain buckle once they are closed. This prevents the buckle from being opened without first breaking a seal and un-threading the cable again.
Commonly, TIR cables are wound round a wrapper located on the front bulkhead.
