Over the years I have seen a common problem with clothing security tags. Luckily this particular issue has a very simple remedy. The problem is attaching the clothing security tags on properly to bulky winter coats.
Often, when I do a spot check of these items, I find that the Checkpoint tags were not snapped down far enough. Sometimes the bulky of the coat makes it hard to determine that the tag is accurately secured. When it is not, there is an open window in our clothing security.
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 without damage to 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.
By doing minimal additional training with your store employees, you should greatly reduce these discrepancies. The unintentional window will be shut and your coats will once again have the proper level of clothing security.
