It is not uncommon for retailers to use bulky cable and chain locks to secure entire fixtures of expensive clothes, like jackets or coats. The problem is that these chain locks are often extremely sensitive and are prone to setting off the clothing alarm by very little movement of the product.
That means that an employee needs to be present at all times to detach an item for a customer. When an employee is not there, customers are often reluctant to try anything on, much less to take their time to track down an employee just to look at one on.
This is probably the most common area that retailers are challenged with finding a balance. They need to balance the use of clothing security with the shopping habits and needs of their customers.
When your merchandise is tied up to the point that it is unshoppable to the average customers then your profits on those items are tied up as well. Literally. It has been proven over and over that when you eliminate access to your merchandise, sales go down. When you give customers the ability to touch, feel, and try on clothes at their leisure, sales of those items increase. When the sales increase, so does the profit.
