Checkpoint tags are to a certain extent efficient in preventing shoplifting. When it comes to shoes, these clothing security tags may not be at the top of their game. If it is a case of straight theft from a grab and run, or concealment then the tags can be useful. When it comes to miss matched shoes, it is not an effective deterrent.
Miss matched shoes are two different sized shoes in the same shoebox. Obviously it didn’t come in that way from the vendor. A customer with two different sized feet (which is very common) get two pairs of shoes in two different sizes. They take one shoe from each pair leaving you with a pair of dissimilar sized shoes. Since it is very rare that you can find another customer with the exact need for this mixed size pair of shoes, you now have a loss on your hands.
Mini CableLoks by Alpha Security can actually help with both kinds of losses. They are an alarm based clothing security tag. They are secured using aircraft grade cables instead of pins, which gives some protection against miss match shoes. When you use the 6” cable, you can actually attach both pair of shoes together with some room for the customer to still try them on and take a step or two. If both shoes stay physically connected, they can’t be separated causing the loss.
