In order for clothing security to be effective, you have to have a certain level of quality in your security resources and tools. I had a camera system once that spent more time waiting for a service tech to come fix it, than I did actually using the system. I ended up not relying on those cameras because I didn’t want to have to need them and then find out they weren’t working.
It was a cheap system that had been pieced together over the years. It wasn’t until we upgraded to a total camera system package did I truly feel I could rely on the cameras as part of my clothing security system.
The same thing goes with our clothing security tags. I have seen some retailers use cheaply made, and cheaply sold, clothing security tags. Boy, do these not work well for anything. If I was to look closely at the tags, I could see the actual seam in the middle of the hard shell. On some of them, the seam was actually breaking apart.
Any shoplifter with an ounce of persistence could easily pry the two sides apart with a screwdriver or other tool. Once the two sides are pried apart, the shoplifter has access to the inner locking mechanism, which is what holds the pin in place on your clothing. Once the pin is removed, the clothing security tags are rendered completely ineffective.
