Although there are many security features placed on hardware devices and within the software, these do not always keep your sensitive data safe. What you need is a backup tool to keep cybercriminals away from your important financial information.
Features Of The SteelWallet Backup Tool
No additional tools are needed with this kit. The backup tools are low-tech and have clear instructions for use when protecting your data.
The steel tool can withstand all sorts of conditions, protecting confidential information. Stainless steel is corrosion-resistant, waterproof, and resists radiation. It is even impervious to fire.
The product can store up to a 24 word recovery seed phrase to protect your cryptocurrency.
How Does The SteelWallet Protect Your Private Keys?
The stainless steel seed backup tool includes 2 stainless steel plates which provide a durable surface that can resist outside elements including natural disasters. With the included stamping kit, you can stamp your seed phrase onto the stainless steel plates. These engraved stainless steel sheets can then be hidden to protect your recovery seed phrase.
Safety and Security For The Hardware Wallet
Only you should be able to gain access to your cryptocurrency wallets. This is why safety layers are so necessary. Along with the pin code, and private keys, you also need an external form of protection. After all, one or two types of digital protection just aren't enough to keep hackers and thieves away.
The SteelWallet is made by Shift Crypto, a leader in high quality, secure crypto storage devices.
Security Features Of The Backup Tool
The product supports the BIP-39 standard. This allows you to store 12, 18, or 24 words as a backup phrase. You can choose the length of your recovery words.
The stainless steel plates are acid resistant, and they can withstand the most extreme conditions. The plates are designed to remain protected against fire, water, and impact damage.
The product is easy to store in a unique hiding place. It is small and lightweight considering it's constructed from steel. Never store your product in a common hiding place where it can be easily located.
Weight And Dimensions
The backup tools for the hardware wallet weigh 450g. The stainless steel is not super light. However, aside from its durability and strength, it's still easy to carry. It's also lightweight enough to hide in small places and among other lightweight materials. The dimensions of the product are 100 × 120 mm.
The SteelWallet Backup Tool is compatible with any BIP-39 hardware wallet and can store up to 24 words, 12 words per steel plate.
What Comes In The Box?
The SteelWallet package includes:
1 instruction book
2 stainless steel sheets
1 automatic punch
- 1 storage pouch
You can purchase a SteelWallet Backup Tool using a major credit or debit card, PayPal, or pay with crypto.
If you want an even greater level of protection, look into tamper-evident bags. These bags protect your hardware and backup tools. If the SteelWallet or accessories are found, it will be obvious by the breaches of the tamper-proof seal. Any type of attempted theft will be indicated, even if mechanical force or heat application is used.

Do your hardware wallets come with a manufacturer warranty?
Because we are authorized retailers of all the hardware wallets we sell and have close partnerships with these companies, all of our products come with the full manufacturer warranty.
What do I do if my device is lost or stolen?
If your device were to fall into the hands of a third party, a PIN number will prevent them from accessing your funds.
As long as you have your 12, 18 or 24 word seed, you can enter it into any compatible software or hardware wallet and recover your assets.
Why is it important to buy from an authorized retailer?
Hardware wallets are known for their improved security for digital assets over software wallets and exchanges that are susceptible to hackers and security lapses.
But the security of hardware wallets is useless if you cannot trust the seller who is selling you a new or used hardware wallet. Recent stories have emerged claiming that unauthorized wallet resellers on platforms like eBay and Amazon can tamper with the wallets and steal assets completely unbeknownst to the consumer.
It is wise to purchase exclusively from exclusive authorized resellers such as The Crypto Merchant, to ensure the safety and authenticity of your hardware wallet.
