Welcome to Retail Security Tags

How a retail loss prevention system works and the security tag components you will need.

An EAS or Electronic Article Surveillance system consists of three key components. The first component is the detection system (1). The detection system (1) is the equipment located at a stores entrance and exit that alarms if a security tag (2) is removed. The detection system can take many forms but is most commonly comprised of two detection antennas on either side of a door. The second components is the security tag (2). The security tag (2) is attached to the item that is to be protected from theft. There are different types of security tags (2) that can be attached to an item by a variety of methods. The two most popular methods of attaching security tags (2) are using a thumbtack like pin connected to a security hard alarm tag or applying a stick-on security label(soft tag) to a smooth flat surface on the item. Soft tags can only be used once while hard tags can be reused and may last for decades. The security tag (2) is neutralized by the third component which can either be a hard tag detacher (3) or a soft tag deactivator (3). A hard tag detacher (3) is the mechanism used to remove the pin from a security hard tag. There are many types of hard tag detachers to correspond with the different types of hard tag. A soft tag deactivator (3) is the machine used to turn off or deactivate a soft tag. In summation, a customer will walk in to a store through a pair of security antennas. They will select a tagged item from the sales floor. The customer will bring this item up to the sales counter where the tag will be neutralized by either being removed in the case of the hard tag or turned off in the case of the soft tag. The customer can now leave the store without setting of the detection system alarm.

Many different anti-shoplifting tag theft prevention systems are displayed perennially at the National Retail Federation loss prevention convention held annually in various places nationwide. This year's national loss prevention NRF show will be held in San Diego again.
