This is probably the most common area that retailers are challenged with finding a balance. They need to balance the shopping habits and needs of their customers with the need for clothing security. It is not uncommon for retailers to use bulky cable and chain locks to secure entire fixtures of expensive clothes, like jackets or coats.
The problem is that these chain locks are often extremely sensitive and are prone to setting off the clothing alarm by very little movement of the product.
When your merchandise is tied up to the point that it is unshoppable to the average customers then your profits on those items are tied up as well. Literally. It has been proven over and over that when you eliminate access to your merchandise, sales go down.
A better solution is to replace the outdated chain and loop systems. Security tags on clothes have come a long way since these systems first came out. Now there are better solutions to protect outerwear items. You can use individual clothing security tags. They are less bulky and not as sensitive to movement. That means your customers can try them on as they are shopping. It turns the merchandise into more of an impulse purchase than a destination buy.
