Ink Pins act as a strong visual deterrent and can prevent shoplifting on their own or paired with an alarming loss prevention tag.
Small, lightweight and durable, the reusable, non-alarming Ink Pin features visible ink vials and a large "warning message".
On its own, the pin relies exclusively on its visual deterrent capability to prevent shoplifting and will not set off an alarm at any Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) or anti-theft antenna. However, it can be combined with any alarming tag that has a pin lock mechanism in order to be picked up by EAS loss prevention gates and alarm at the door.
Ink Pins can be removed with the Super Designer Detacher.
- Ink Release Mechanism
- Two ink colors: there is red and blue ink

Disrupts the Reselling of Stolen Apparel: Ink security pins have a mechanism that releases ink when the pin is removed or tampered with, making the product unusable and unappealing to shoplifters.
Denies Shoplifters Any Benefit: When tampered with or forcefully removed, a glass vial full of either blue or red ink will spill over the garment, destroying it. The red and blue ink means that this tag can defend any item, regardless of its original color.
Versatile: The pin can be combined with any security tag that uses a pin lock mechanism. Some of these include mini rectangular tags, pencil mini tags, and any other tag that takes a pin! If the ink pin is combined with a tag with EAS alarming capabilities, the ink pin becomes even more effective at preventing and detecting shoplifting.
Simple to Attach: Whether you are using a universal clutch or an alarming tag, the ink pin is incredibly easy to assemble. Simply put it into the hole on your tag or clutch until you feel a click. When the pin lock mechanism is in place, your garment is secured. Lightly tug on the pin to make sure, if it doesn't budge you are good to go!
Quick removal: The ink pin can be removed in seconds with a Super Designer Detacher. Simply place the pin on the detacher (pin-side facing down) and slide the pin out securely. Do not try to pry the pin off as it may break and destroy your garment or cause injury.
Reusable: Ink pins are fully functional and reusable until they have broken. If you take good care of these pins they can last forever! We suggest you put them in a box after removal and apply them to new merchandise as they come in.
Ink pins work best with garments and other cloth items. To work best, the ink pin must be on an item that could be ruined by the ink inside. Some of these include:
Clothing: shirts, blouses, dresses, pants, purses, lingerie, and swimwear.
Accessories: purses, hats, swimsuit cover-ups, scarves, and knitwear.
Footwear: shoes and boots.
Linen and bedding: throw blankets, sheet sets, and bedspreads.
What is Benefit Denial?
As this pin denies shoplifters any benefit to shoplifting an item, it uses the "Benefit Denial" strategy. If the shoplifter knows that stealing an item and removing its pin without the right technology would make the item useless, they may be significantly deterred from taking it.
Since ink pins destroy fabric with their permanent ink, removing all value, they can no longer be resold by shoplifters or even worn.
