Many years ago, a famous actress was arrested stealing clothes from a high dollar retailer. When she was apprehended, there was a cut on her finger. While that little detail might not mean anything to the common observer, to anyone in clothing security, it means all the difference in the world.
There is a reason why retailers almost universally use Checkpoint tags as their preferred brand of clothing security tags; in a word – Quality. Just because you use security tags on clothes doesn’t mean the crooks will simply throw their hands up and walk away. The unskilled ones will, but there are those out there that will make attempts to defeat the Checkpoint tags.
That means your clothing security tags need to be beyond reproach. No one should be able to come in with a pocketknife or a pair of pliers and pries open the tags to defeat them and bypass the clothing alarm. Your tags should be seamless and fool proof.
That is what happened to the actress. She tried to pry apart the Checkpoint Tags. When they didn’t easily open, the knife slipped cutting herself. This action not only prevented the tag from being disabled, but it also gave the store further proof, in court, of her intent to commit the crime she had been accused of.
