Move The Marker Forward- Retail Anti Theft Devices

Many retailers, in an effort to reduce operational expenses, have started to employ fewer full time employees and more part time workers. While this move makes initial financial sense for many small businesses, it does not always move the marker forward in the challenge to prevent shoplifting.
Part time employees might make for a better financial situation, but this is generally a case of you get what you pay for. Because part time employees are less likely to have guaranteed hours or might not be eligible for benefits, they are also less likely to be truly engaged in your business.
Retail anti theft devices are more likely to be used inconsistently when the responsibility falls onto part time employees. It is a tedious task of applying them, and then removing the retail anti theft devices during the check out process. They simply do not care if a customer is inconvenienced by an alarm or if they actually contribute to prevent shoplifting incidents.
While I am a firm believer that all employees need to be held to the same accountability and responsibility standards, it is critical to your business that full time or more engaged part time employees need to gate keep the process to ensure its success.

Eliminate The Nest- Retail Anti Theft Devices

We have all seen the signs of shoplifting safe havens. When you look under shelves, or tables you can find a mass of torn of price tags, or sometimes locate hoards of merchandise that a shoplifter is ferreting away to steal later on when they think the coast is clear. To prevent shoplifting from these back corners, you have to find a way to eliminate these kinds of shoplifter nests.
While the obvious solution is to open up these back corners and areas, it is not always practical (or physically possible) to try and remerchandise the entire store to eliminate them. Another, more practical solution is to use the Alpha Nano Gate. This retail anti theft device is designed to fit into small spaces, or back areas of a store that lend themselves to shoplifting nests.
Many shoplifters will seek out back areas like a bathroom or storage closet that they can sneak in and out of to conceal their intent to steal. It is there that they will create their nests of merchandise and attempt to defeat retail anti theft devices like soft and hard tags.
The Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate is a miniature EAS tower that attaches onto a wall or other stable spot. As a customer or shoplifter enters these back areas with tagged merchandise, an alarm will go off alerting staff to a potential theft issue in progress.
The Alpha Nano Gate also has a back up battery that will alarm if the tower is tampered with, to further prevent shoplifting in these corners.

A Different Back, A Different Lock- Alpha Jewel Lok

Alpha Security Alpha Jewel Lok are hard to defeat locks that secure earrings onto the jewelry cards, preventing a shoplifter from easily stealing the merchandise. The three kinds of locks are for hoop earrings, stud earrings and French wire earrings. Each lock designed with the specific characteristics of each earring in mind.
The stud earring locks not only attach the earring to the jewelry card by securing the post on the back, but they also incorporate a “parking” area for the backs to be kept. As anyone who wears a stud earring knows, the back is just as essential as the actual earring is when you are wearing them.
The French wires attach onto the wire with a low profile design that cannot be seen from the front. This helps keep a better visual appearance for these often flashy or highly decorative earrings. Hoop earrings also need their own style of Alpha Jewel Loks. Just like the other two styles, the hoop posts are secured to the card from the back providing a secure deterrent from shoplifters.
Retail anti theft devices designed by Alpha Security to prevent shoplifting are very well thought out creating a simple and effective solution.

Open Merchandising- Prevent Shoplifting

Each time a retailer tries to lock up their high theft merchandise behind a case, or some other form of employee control, sales go down. It has been proven time and time again from every product assortment and specialty niche that has undergone a locking solution.
That pushes retailers back to the drawing board of how to protect their product and prevent theft at the hands of shoplifters and employees. In order to not create a negative impact on sales, high theft products need an open merchandising solution.
An open merchandising solution entails a customer’s ability to pick the product up at their leisure. It allows them to read labels, feel fabrics or materials, and inspect an item up close for quality. When the customer feels like they have gathered enough information to make a purchasing decision, they buy the item.
Some customers are turned off by the prospect of needing an employee to assist them. Either they do not want to endure a barrage of questions about what they are looking for, or the customer simply does not have the time to track down an employee to get the item for them. Open merchandising allows the customer to take control of their purchase.

Stay In Control- Prevent Shoplifting

Retail anti theft devices are the most notable and recognizable ways to prevent shoplifting, but did you know that basic retail operations and standards could play just as important part? What few retailers are aware of is that even with retail anti theft devices in place a store that does not follow its operational protocol is still at risk.
A shoplifter thrives on disorganization, unattended corners of a store, and a lack of employee presence. If you do not keep your store, clean, organized, and recovered promptly, a shoplifter can slip by undetected. If you have a table of jeans that are thrown about and disorganized, you have no way of knowing if something is missing. A table of carefully folded and laid out jeans is more likely to be noticed if one, or several, jeans are missing.
The same goes for high theft items that can be taken to an isolated corner. Sometimes moving a shelf or a table can create a better sightline for your employees to see what is going on. Similarly, your employees need to engage all customers. If they ignore your paying customers, you can be rest assured that they are ignoring the shoplifters too.

Didn’t See That- Alpha Nano Gate

I never worried about trying to prevent shoplifting out of the back office areas in my stores. So it never crossed my mind to install and Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate outside the office.
In a few of my stores, I have employed a visual manager. Their job was to keep signage up to date, and create visual displays using new and popular merchandise. 
Since they routinely took multiple products off the sales floor to carry out their job responsibilities, no one ever questioned why they had merchandise in their hands. I guess we should have been concerned because they were taking the product back to their office instead of keeping the items out on the sales floor.
What we didn’t realize, until after it was too late, was that this manager had been stealing merchandise for years. It was only after they left to pursue anther job, did we uncover the massive quantity of discarded price tags, retail anti theft devices, and labels stashed back in their office.
They used the access given with their position to cover up the extra product they were taking home. We should have had a policy that all merchandise stays out of the office, and installed an Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate to enforce that policy.

Don’t Overlook An Old Standby- Retail Anti Theft Devices

With all of the exciting advancements in retail anti theft devices, it is easy to overlook the effectiveness and usefulness of an old stand by- the Alpha Security Ink Tag.
The ink tag is a combination of typical retail anti theft devices (EAS tags) and vials of dye. Generally there is a glow in the dark ink and a dark blue or red dye in each tag. The point being, even if a shoplifter runs out of the store with merchandise that still bears an EAS tag, they will effectively destroy the merchandise when they tamper with the EAS tag to remove them.
These tags prevent shoplifting by providing the risk of getting caught by an alarm, in addition to ruining whatever they are trying to steal. If the merchandise is worthless, there is no point in stealing it. Clothing cannot be resold or worn easily when the ink stains the fabric beyond repair.
A suspected shoplifter who tampers with these tags will also get the ink stained on their hands. Investigator/ law enforcement will use those stains as evidence in court since the ink can be matched to the broken ink vials in the tags.

Get On The Band Wagon- Retail Anti Theft Devices

Alpha Security has just released their latest in retail anti theft devices. It is called the Banded Hard Tag. The tag’s functionality provides for the same features to prevent shoplifting that their other retail anti theft devices do. The difference is in the physical design of the Banded Hard Tag.
Instead of the conventional two part hard tag that consists of a pin and a “button”, the Alpha Security Banded Hard Tag is designed out of just one piece of molded plastic. By only having one piece to control instead of two, retailers will find a variety of benefits from using this new design.
The tags are small, measuring a mere 1.78”L x 0.637”W x 0.844”D. They prevent shoplifting of standard clothing items. Additionally, they provide protection for other merchandise that has historically been difficult to attach EAS hard tags to. Shoes, zippered bags (like comforters and sheet sets), and intimates can now benefit from shoplifting protection.
Even if the band is cut on the Banded Hard Tag, the pin will continue to protect the merchandise. Even better, there are replacement bands and pin to minimize long term costs associated with maintaining the EAS tags.

Mark It Down- Retail Anti Theft Devices

A common retail practice when selling just about anything is to mark down merchandise for a quicker sale. By marking down merchandise, it helps the retailer recoup at least minimal margin dollars on these items while clearing inventory for new products. The exception is for miss- mates caused by a lack of retail anti theft devices.
Earrings, and similar jewelry sold in pairs, are faced with a specific problem of being separated from its mate. It is actually pretty easy for an earring to get lost in a store setting. Customers can get pairs of earring tangled trying to take one off of a rounder or peg hook. They can take them off the jewelry cards and accidentally drop one. Sometimes someone who has an uneven number of piercing and doesn’t want to pay for a full set can steal them.
Regardless of how it happened, retailers are left with the same problem of what to do with the remaining earring. Since the half a set can’t be sold at full price, a markdown is generally taken. These marked down earrings are rarely successful in being sold. It is a last chance effort on recovering some money instead of taking it as a total loss.
The Alpha Security Alpha Jewel Lok is a locking mechanism that protects the merchandise, not the packaging. These locks affix to the posts of the earrings, preventing removal from the jewelry card. The Alpha Jewel Lok keeps the pairs together, preventing the need to prematurely mark down pairs of earrings.

Let The Tides Roll In- Alpha Security

High Efficiency laundry detergent is a high theft item in almost any store, in any market that carries it. The soap is expensive compared to its non-efficiency counterparts, but more importantly, it is used in making drugs. Because of its necessity in this illegal activity, dealers generally are more likely to steal it than to pay for it. So how do you prevent shoplifting such an irregular product?
Laundry bottles are hard plastic, curved and relatively heavy. EAS labels can be peeled off the outside, and would damage the contents if affixed to the inside. Straight pin EAS tags have nowhere to go, and puncturing the bottle would cause it to leak- spoiling the soap inside.
There are Alpha Security retail anti theft devices that are designed more for clothing security than detergent, but work surprisingly well. The Alpha 2 Alarm and Alpha 3 Alarm Cable Loks have a secured loop that wraps around the bottle’s handle. The Alpha 2 Alarm functionality will sound when the Cable Lok is tampered with, and the Alpha 3 Alarm version sounds directly from the Cable Lok, and not just the EAS door towers.
