Upgrading your Security Tags
In the ever-changing minds of thieves and shoplifters, stores sticking with the same EAS and loss prevention products is the best case possible. When a google search of “how to remove security tags off clothing”, even the most secure of tags, such as ink tags – where the item is damaged if the tag is improperly removed can be removed with a little bit of motivation. What worked ten to twenty years ago for security tags may not be as effective in the 2020’s.
Run-of-the-mill magnet strength for security tags may have been enough to deter thieves, but in the modern era, this is not always the case. A stronger magnet is less common for thieves to come by, and security tags with higher magnetic strength prove much more difficult to remove.
Security tags come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Some security tag shapes are more difficult to remove than others. For example, it is much more difficult to pry open a Golf Tag, also known as a Clamshell Tag, than other shapes.
Shell tags with ink inside the tags have the benefit of AM or RF frequency, and benefit denial of indelible ink.
Product specific tags are a great way to update your security tag and loss prevention strategy. Liquor bottle locks, eyeglass tags, and spider wraps are great ways to utilize customized, and product-specific EAS products.
These types of tags are an excellent addition to specialty stores, and general merchandise alike.
