We know you buy a Minelab metal detector because you want to be successful and find as much gold as possible. We’re passionate about detecting for gold which is why we need to stop counterfeiters producing inferior products and selling them as genuine Minelab Detectors.
We know that counterfeiters have tried to copy the brand protection security labels. To combat this our brand protection security label system enables you to tell the difference between a genuine Minelab Detector and an inferior counterfeit one. For the GPX series we’ve introduced a large security label for the eureka golden xterra 705 gold pack control boxes we’ve introduced a small security label.
The commander coils also use the small security label for extra protection while the small security label has been added to all outer Cotton’s with a plastic rivet.
It’s easy to check if you have a genuine Minelab device as there are three levels of verification. The first one requires a special security viewer. The small security viewer strip is attached to the verify your mindlab brochure.
To use the small security viewer strip rotate it so that it sticks out from the brochure, to check products with the large security level hold the large or small security viewer over the silver strip. There are three ways to identify if the product is a genuine minelab. Number one, through the security bureau strip you will see a full color image at the word genuine which will always be multicolored and the background will be pure silver with no tint. Number 2, through the security viewer or strip you will see a full color image with a word on a rainbow background as well as the multicolored word genuine. Number 3, through the security viewer or strip you will see a full color image with a four-digit number on a rainbow background as well as the multicolored word genuine. There are a range of different images available but all three versions of the label mean that you have a genuine minelab detector.
If the product is a counterfeit the image code word or number and the word genuine will appear as only one or two colors and the background will have an obvious tint. To check the small security level, hold the viewer over the label of the product is a genuine minelab a clear red and black image of the minelab logo with or without a rainbow in between each logo will appear.
The word genuine will also appear in different colors the logos rainbow and the word genuine will appear on a pure silver background with no tint. If the product is a counterfeit the minelab logo and the word genuine will appear fuzzy with limited colors and the background will have an obvious tint.
The second level of verification is for g PX series detectors only through a SMS verification system there are four easy steps to follow step one go to the SMS function on your phone step 2 enter the product serial number of your mindlab GPX series detector located on the underside of the control box, then a space, then enter the word or number from the large security label into the message body. step 3 send the SMS 2 plus 6 1458 727 727 step 4 wait for the response from minelab.
There are three possible responses you will receive this response if you have a genuine minelab if you receive this response then please re-enter your product serial number a space and then the hidden word on number from the large security label and send the SMS 2 plus 6 1458 7277 27.
Please check that the product serial number and word or number is correct and that you entered a space between them before you send the message. Also make sure you send the SMS 2 plus 6 1458 7277 27 and not to the reply number of the message the third response you may receive is this, if you receive this message please contact your nearest minelab authorized dealer or distributor as soon as possible or send an email report to minelab .
