The importance of retail security tags
Theft is a problem that causes millions in loss for the retail sector each year, which is why many products that are stolen frequently are fitted with a security tag. These are so to speak the first line of defense when it comes to discouraging shoplifters, because many of them quickly give up when they see that products are fitted with a security tag. Studies have proven that security tags for retail stores can reduce shoplifting by at least 60%.
What are security tags?
So, as mentioned, theft is a big problem in retail, which is why extra security for your products is not only desired, but also quite necessary to add. There are different ways to add security. One way is to use clamshell container packaging, where a full plastic, sealed blister combined with an insert card protects your product from theft. Another way to ensure safety is by adding security tags to your products. These retail security tags are a type of sticker that is added to the product to make sure that when it is stolen, the alarm will be triggered as soon as the shoplifters walk through the detection gates. Usually, the tags are placed strategically onto the product and feature a low profile. Because of this, shoplifters cannot simply remove them before stealing the product and often miss the security tag altogether.
