Clothing security tags are a great invention and can be of even greater use in your attempts to reduce overall shrink in your stores. However, for years most of us knew that they could really only be trusted to deter the novice or amateur shoplifter because there were numerous ways to defeat them. Now, what I’m telling you isn’t information found in some super-secret thief handbook that can only be found next to the Holy Grail and big foot’s toenail clippings. No, it’s available online for anyone interested and there are even tutorials on how to disarm clothing security tags.
There was a time when all a seasoned thief needed was a roll of masking tape and a pair of needle-nosed pliers to defeat an EAS or ink tag. However, like those of the dinosaur and your old Barry Manilow record collection, those days are gone. Over the years the shoplifters have gotten smarter, so Alpha High Theft Solutions did the same and rolled out their S3 hard tags. Now when your not-so-friendly neighborhood shoplifter goes to work with his trusty pair of pliers, the alarm on the merchandise sounds, alerting anyone within earshot that a thief is present.
As you can imagine, this is the last thing a thief wants to hear. However, as a loss prevention professional it’s music to my ears. The S3 hard tags also sound when the merchandise leaves the store or when your more brazen thieves try to run out of the store with a handful of merchandise. You should never underestimate the ingenuity or the desperation of the criminal mind. Stay one step ahead of them by using clothing security tags on your high-risk merchandise.
