Shoes always pose a problem for clothing security. The two biggest losses in the shoe department are inventory shrink losses from shoplifters or employees.
These theft losses are pretty straightforward. Often a shoplifter will come into the store with an old pair of shoes and try on a new pair. They put their old pair in the box and walk out with the new pair. An employee might do the same, or they will be more likely to pass off the shoes at the point of sale to a friend or relative.
Using Checkpoint tags only partially solves each of these problems. Since the pin system only works when there is an eye to thread the stickpin through, many shoes cannot be tagged. Strappy heels, dress shoes and sandals are prime examples. Without clothing security tags, it is just that much easier for a shoplifter to walk out the door unnoticed.
Using the Alpha Security Mini CableLok instead of checkpoint tags offers more range for your clothing security tags. The Mini CableLok is a small 3” aircraft grade cable with an isolated sound chamber. The cable can be looped through straps or decorations that would secure the lock. By increasing the range of merchandise that can now be secured, to makes it harder for a shoplifter or an employee to sneak out the door.
