Clothing security has always been reason for alarm to an apparel retailer. People steal clothes. They steal them because they want to have the latest fashion and either can’t afford it or don’t want to pay the price for it. It’s usually the most popular items that are vulnerable to both the casual shoplifter and the professional shoplifter. Professional shoplifter is defined here as one who resells the merchandise that he steals for profit.
There are so many ways to steal clothing. Drop in your shopping bag, conceal it in your own clothes, wear it out, or steal it in the fitting room or the restroom where there is plenty of privacy. Then there are others who simply pick up the merchandise and walk out with it or snatch the clothing from a cube or round rack and run out the door.
Clothing security has always consisted of customer service, greeting every customer as they enter the store or department; specially tasked employees such as security personnel or fitting room attendants; alternating hangers on round racks to discourage snatch and runs; or maybe cameras and other CCTV equipment to deter shoplifters.
Without a clothing alarm, all of these methods, although they are excellent prevention techniques, can be defeated.
Security tags on clothes are the one thing that apparel shoplifters don’t want to see on their intended targets. The clothing security tags mean that if the shoplifter wants to avoid detection of his activity, he is going to have to remove or disable the tags that are on the clothes, an almost impossible task. The clothing security tags are designed so that they are held fast by a metal pin that is pushed through the fabric so that it does no damage. The tag can’t be removed without damaging the item that it protects. The tag can only be removed by an employee with a specially manufactured detacher, which separates the pin from the reusable tag.
Clothing security tags on clothes can enhance any retailer’s anti shoplifting program by protecting one of his most valuable lines of merchandise.
