Clothing Security Tags with Ink!

Think of this, a shoplifter in your clothing area wants to steal a shirt. They conceal the shirt and leave. They get away and are not caught. Do you think they be back? Oh yeah! Now consider this, when they get home (somewhere under a slimy rock) they take out their new shirt and discover a Checkpoint Chekink tag attached. OK now what do they do? They will have to forcefully remove the clothing security tag. When they do, long before the tag is broken off the two vials of pressurized ink/dye break the brightly colored mixture spreads out on the shirt staining it forever. And because the vials are pressurized the ink does not just seep out. But wait; let’s put the entire shirt and Chekink tag in the freezer. Once we freeze the tag we try to then force it off. Sorry, we thought of that. The ink/dye in the glass vials are made with a solution that has anti-freeze. Oops, still pressurized and still liquid. Think they will come back to shoplift from you again? Probably not but your competitor down the street…. What about accidents by your store personnel? Won’t we ruin some merchandise? A high amount of force is required to break the vials and normal use does not cause a problem. Hit them with a hammer and we may have an issue. This is a clothing security tag with an attitude. Oh and by the way they work with any checkpoint hard tag or by themselves!

Brand New Clothing Security Tags By Checkpoint

Checkpoint has released a new, dynamic clothing security tag. Called the “3G Hard Tag With Super Lock”, this tag is a bi-color gray/white. 3G’s are similar in size to the standard mini-hard tag. 3G’s will solve several problems in the mini-hard tag arena. Knockoffs that are cheap imports have been made to look identical to the Checkpoint mini hard tag, Genuine Checkpoint mini hard tags have the Checkpoint logo. Most knockoffs have rough edges that snag and damage clothing. They also have poor locking clutches that do not function smoothly. This causes frustration at checkout. The 3G has a hole located near the clutch that will take a flex string. This is used to loop the flex string through larger items and allows you to use the tag more diverse situations. The 3G clothing security tags by Checkpoint will require a Checkpoint super detacher, which means that shoplifters will not be able to remove them. Store personnel will place the 3G the same as any other hard tag. Using a pin place them on a seam, top rear of a shirt below the collar, eyelet of a shoe, etc. Use the same pins you already have. An additional clothing security tag suggestion is to place a label such as a 410 barcode in a pocket in addition to the hard tag. This will double your security for a few pennies more.
