Checkpoint is releasing new clothing security tags . They are called the “3G Hard Tag With Super Lock”. These tags are bi-color white and gray. The 3G is similar in size to the mini-hard tag.
The 3G will solve several problems in the mini-hard tag area. Cheap imports knockoffs have been made to look identical to the Checkpoint tag, less the Checkpoint logo. These knockoffs generally have rough edges that snag clothing. They also have very poor locking clutches that do not function smoothly.
3G clothing security tags will require a super detacher, which means that shoplifters will not be able to remove them. Placement of the 3G will be the same as any other hard tag. Place them on a seam, top rear of a shirt below the collar, eyelet of a shoe, etc. Use the same pins you already have. The 3G also has a hole that will accept a flex string. Use this to loop the flex string through larger items.
Another clothing security tag tip is to drop a label such as a 410 in a pocket in addition to the hard tag. Double your security for a few more pennies.
