We used to find empty wrist watch packages nearly every day at my store, and we weren’t sure exactly how to solve the problem. The retail anti-theft devices we already had in the store for other products were too bulky, so they just didn’t work well for the watches we sold. Then I talked with my supervisor about what other options were available to protect the products. We asked some of our colleagues what they used, and we received the same answer from each of them, which was the Alpha Jewel Lok.
Watches and jewelry in general were becoming top theft items in the store, and at this point, we were desperate for a solution to our theft problem. The interesting part was that most of the watches had retail anti-theft devices in the form of source tags already in the package, but the package was open so that the customer was able to handle the watches before they were purchased. The problem was that shoplifters would just remove the watches from the packages, so the tags weren’t the best solution for our specific issue. We needed something that would actually attach to the product, instead of the package. After getting advice from colleagues and looking around ourselves, we decided to give the Alpha Jewel Lok a chance. I can honestly say that there was a drastic reduction in the amount of jewelry and watches that were stolen after we started using the devices.
I really didn’t expect that we would see such great results in a short amount of time, so it wasn’t long before we realized that we could use this device on other items in the store. After all, the goal was to prevent shoplifting altogether, so why not take full advantage of the device? We also used it on loose jewelry and some wallets. Doing a little research, I found that you can also use them on some clothing items, shoes, and other accessories like belts. You can basically use it for any merchandise that you can get the hook to fit. You attach the device directly onto the product itself, so unless the shoplifters want to damage part of the merchandise, it will be very difficult to remove it. The good thing is that it still convenient for your customers and allows them to handle the items before making the purchase.
What makes the Alpha Jewel Lok work so well on these items is that it’s small, light and durable. It allows you to better protect merchandise that you had problems with in the past, and it’s nearly impossible to remove without the proper S3 key. This means it’s hard times for the shoplifters, which is always a good thing for you. The small hook that attaches to the merchandise fits tightly, so there isn’t any room to get anything in the space to cut it off of the product, but of course that doesn’t stop them from trying. I have watched shoplifters try to remove it without success many times. Don’t worry though, if you have the key to remove it, it’s a cinch and it only takes a quick second to take it off the item. That means that your customers won’t have to inconveniently wait at the register.
