When it comes to products that indicate your product has been dropped consider this...
The Shockwatch and the Shockwatch Clip products do a great job and because of their design will indicate that a package has been dropped along any axis as long as they are applied properly.
Here is a PDF of the mounting instructions and suggested uses for the different Shockwatch ranges.

Shockwatch does not offer the option of being reset. This means that they are always activated and can be accidently triggered before you ever attach them to your package. Sometimes they even trigger in transit to you.
Please note that although we carry all of the Shockwatch G ranges, because of the extreme sensitivity of the L-55 (Purple 37G) and the L65 (Yellow 25G) Shockwatch Labels as well as the 37G and under Shockwatch Clips, these products cannot be shipped without special handling considerations! Be prepared to order a minimum of 200 on these 2 G ranges because in most cases these 2 more sensitive G range Shockwatch must be shipped by truck. Contact us with your needs!
The Drop N Tells on the other hand are available in 2 different versions and 6 different G ranges from 5 to 100 G's.
The Resettable version can be reset reliably up to 50 times using a straightened paper clip. This means that even if they are accidently triggered in transit to you, they are easily reset.
The Non-Resettable cannot be triggered until after they have been physically activated at the time you attach them to your package. This means that all the G ranges can be shipped economically. Because of their design, they also only reliably activate along one axis so you may need to apply them on more than one axis for full coverage. They also are offered in more and lower G ranges. There is a more detailed description when you go to the actual Drop N Tell section of the shopping cart.
