I was looking through the pockets of a pair of jeans the other day as I was trying to get some laundry done. I am forever leaving random receipts or chap stick in my pants, so I make a habit of always checking before any thing goes into the washer.
Sure enough, I felt something as I was searching the pockets. Strange, I thought. I can’t get anything out. As I took another look, I realized whatever I found was actually on the inside of my jeans, not in the pocket.
As it turns out, there was a little pouch inside my jeans that was holding a clothing security tag. Now, since I haven’t set any clothing alarms off at any store I have been in while wearing the jeans, I can safely assume that the tag was properly deactivated at the register when I bought them.
I can also assume that the tag in question was more than likely a Checkpoint tag. Some of the cheap import knock off labels have a habit of reactivating themselves if they are not properly cut out and discarded, like my little pouch instructed me to do.
A true Checkpoint tag is designed to not reactivate, as the tags can potentially cause customer service issues if it does reactivate.
Visit the Loss Prevention Store to purchase a clothing alarm or clothing security tags and an Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system.
