Shoplifting Prevention | How To Stop Stoplifting At Your Store

Shplifting Prevention Gate

Shoplifting significantly impacts a business. Excessive shoplifting can even result in a business’s failure! Though shoplifting prevention methods may seem initially expensive, they end up saving the company a great deal of money. It is important to implement product security methods to reduce the amount of shoplifting that occurs in your business.

Gates, Towers, and Antennas

Gates, towers, and antennas are placed at entryways to retail stores. These gates are capable of detecting anti-theft tags and labels. The gates will alert you when an individual attempts to take a product that contains an activated anti-theft label. Multiple units may be required when the entryway is particularly large. It is important to ensure that your gate’s detected frequency matches the frequency that your anti-security tags emit.

Shoplifting Prevention Accessories

There are many accessories that can help prevent shoplifting. Pins for tags, detachers for removing hard tags, and more accessories are available to ensure the effectiveness of your product security measures.

Hard Tags and Labels

Hard tags consist of a plate and a pin. They emit a frequency that will set off anti-theft detectors. These tags are typically used on clothing or other apparel items, because they involve attaching the tag to a material that can be easily pierced. Labels essentially perform the same functions as hard tags. They are used more often on solid products, such as CDs, DVDs, or other electronic products.

Deactivators

Deactivators are most commonly placed at cash registers. They are used to deactivate anti-theft tags, allowing the labeled product to leave the store freely. The use of a deactivator is necessary to differentiate between purchased product and stolen product.
