For years, Alpha Security has found pride in developing and producing product specific retail anti theft devices. These devices were designed to make retailer’s jobs easier, while providing proven solutions to reduce inventory shrink through theft. While retailers ranging from specialty boutiques to big box have welcomed this business model with open arms, it is not for everyone.
For some small businesses there is only a minimal need to have diversified anti theft devices. It could be a matter of having a small range within their product assortments, so they do not need to have multiple styles and sizes of these anti shoplifting devices.
For other small businesses, there simply is not a budget that allows for maintaining a large stockpile of multiple devices. Having to spend the money to purchase enough quantities of each style is more than allowable. These retailers are faced with decisions on what they can effectively buy that will make for the biggest impact. They hope that they can either offset the rest of their shrink losses, or retrofit their existing stockpile of anti theft devices into working for other products.
To stay at the top of their game, Alpha Security came up with a new twist on their retail anti theft devices to prevent shoplifting at retailers who have a wider assortment of products, but do not have excess budgets to make multiple purchases. They created a one style fits all solution.
They modified their existing CableLok security device to now have an adjustable cable. The cable can be fitted to a wide variety of lengths, making it practical for multiple product uses within a retailer’s store. The cable can be cinched down to the size needed for the specific product you want to secure. Instead of having to make a longer or shorter cable work, one style can be made to fit many sizes.
Instead of needing several different devices for clothing, and sporting goods, for example, the new adjustable cable can be used in all of these applications.
Additional suggested product security uses include briefcases and handbags. For hard line stores, the same cable can be used on grills, lawn mowers and other outdoor power equipment, hand tools (electric and battery operated) clam shell packages of merchandise, display merchandise like a stroller or vacuum, and even laundry detergent bottles.
Many of these items have been historically problematic to secure, as other anti theft options are not conducive to the packaging. Laundry detergent, for example, cannot be pierced and secured with a stickpin based EAS tag. Soft labels are easily peeled off of the plastic exterior, and would not be useful inside the product as they could cause a customer service issue when the tags fall into a washer unexpectedly.
The adjustable CableLoks come in both Alpha 2 Alarm, Alpha 3 Alarm, AM and RF styles. This will help to provide a seamless and cost effective transition into your existing security system.
