Often, when I do a spot check of clothing security tags on our winter coats I find that they were not snapped down far enough. Sometimes the bulky material of the coat makes it hard for my employees to determine that the tag is accurately secured. By doing minimal additional training with your store employees, you should greatly reduce these discrepancies.
When checked, you will find that the pin is attached to the base of the tag. However, the pin is not completely engaged into the locking mechanism. That means anyone can detach the tags simply by giving the two sides a good pull. They will detach the clothing security tags without damaging the tag or the outerwear.
To fix this, simply give the Checkpoint tags an extra push down. The pins in the tag will click and snap completely shut. This way they are not easily wiggled loose because the pin was not completely engaged.
You should hear two little clicks when you push the pin down. That means it is completely secured in place. If you are having trouble, sometimes you can gently tug on the fabric to get the stuffing to spread out slightly- thus thinning out some of the bulk. Other times, just pushing a little harder on the tag will secure it properly.
Whatever the method, by making sure your employees know to check the tags will make the biggest difference in the effectiveness of your clothing security.
