As we enter the new season we have to worry about the new shoplifters that will be visiting our stores. There are many different retailers who sell footwear and all know how hard it is to protect this product. Most footwear theft is perpetrated by the shoplifter trading in his/her old shoes for new ones. This is very hard to catch as no product is concealed and no one really questions what shoes a customer has on. To help protect this expensive product I suggest using clothing security tags.
Checkpoint tags are a great product to help protect shoes. You can use soft Checkpoint tags to hide under the insole. Many shoplifters look for hard tags so this will keep them guessing, but when they walk out your associates will be alerted by your clothing alarm to the potential theft. You can also use hard Checkpoint tags on shoes. If the shoes have laces you can put the pin for the hard Checkpoint tags through the lace holes. This will not damage the product and it is very hard for a would-be shoplifter to remove.
Another option to putting security tags on clothes is products by Alpha Security. There are several clothing security devices that can be used and they will work with your existing AM and RF clothing alarm. One option is the Fashion 2 accessory tag. This tag has a little metal loop that will allow you to secure the hard tag to the shoe. Another option is the 3 alarm cable lock. This also is a hard tag with a cable to attach to the shoe, but it also has a built in alarm. If tampered with the clothing alarm will sound immediately. With all the theft today it is important to put security tags on clothes in order to protect the profits we work so hard to achieve.
