When we spend money on our clothing security devices and components, there is a certain expectation of reliability to decrease and eliminate shoplifting. Unfortunately, some thieves work hard to find ways to defeat our systems.
A recent example is the theft of over two hundred pairs of underwear from a high-end clothing store. A man walked into the store with a large bag, went to the closest tables he could get to, and pushed as many pairs into the bag. He then ran out of the store. Eventually the police did catch up to the man, and found the merchandise, along with the bag he had used in the theft.
It turns out that the bag the shoplifter used had a foil lining- designed to bypass the clothing alarm used in conjunction with the clothing security tags on all of the merchandise in the store.
Many reputable dealers are using technology in their clothing security and clothing alarms that not only alerts employees to foil linings coming into the store, but also will not be defeated or bypassed by their use.
These advancements in clothing security technology help maintain the reliability of clothing security tags. By eliminating ways shoplifters can work around your system, you can continue to have the same expectation of results.
