The TiltWatch XTR tilt indicator detects unacceptable tilting on goods that must remain upright. When these indicators are used, the product cannot be tipped without indisputable evidence of mishandling.
The TiltWatch XTR tilt indicator turns red if the container it is affixed to is tilted past 80° or is completely upended. TiltWatch XTR tilt indicator will not activate under normal handling conditions or aircraft take-offs.
