Ticket Molding Best Practices

Get the best use out of your shelf edge ticket moldings (also known as data strips), by following kostklip’s recommendations and best practices.

This blog post outlines how to store, install and use your ticket moldings to maintain them.


There are different types of ticket moldings depending on the type of fixture they fit. The following are the most common types:


Start at one end and insert the bottom of the back leg into the bottom lip of the price channel. Push the top of the ticket molding into the channel to snap the top into the upper lip of the price channel. Press along the rest of the ticket molding with your thumb or installation tool to clip into the remaining length of the shelf.


Starting at one end, hook the top of the ticket molding over the top lip of the shelf fixture. Press the ticket molding over the bottom lip and press the ticket molding over the rest of the fixture. For rounded fixtures, pinch the back leg over the fixture to secure the ticket molding.

Flat Mount Tape Back

Ensure that the application surface is clean and dry. Remove the tape backing from the ticket molding. Line up the molding and press the molding against the application surface.

Installation Tips

Most ticket moldings fit best on the first installation, avoid removing and re-installing the same piece as it may get damaged each time. Use ticket moldings with foam tape for bottom shelves for more durable application. For freezers and coolers, ensure that the application surface is clean and dry. Use sharp shears or scissors to cut ticket moldings down to length as necessary. Use the shelf edge tool to avoid finger burn. For curved shelves, use shorter pieces of ticket molding so the window can be opened.


  • Avoid stacking heavy items on top of ticket molding boxes
  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Storage environment should not exceed 38°C/100°F
