How to Remove Security Tags From Clothing
- Cut it off with a dremel or thin wire cutter.
- You can use a strong magnet to remove certain types of sensors.
- Another eHow article offers a better solution for some tags—use rubber bands!
- Do not attempt to freeze the garment and remove an ink tag.
- Just hit it in the right place.
Without a detection system, security tags are useless. When the sensor passes the detectors, the alarm goes off. Most tags also can be programmed to set off an alarm if someone attempts to remove them without the proper tool.
Many security tags are deactivated in-store with an electromagnetic device. To remove them at home, use a high-powered magnet, such as a hard drive magnet. Place the magnet on a flat surface and lay the tag on top of it with the ink dome or cartridge facing down.
Security tags require removal when a product is sold. This simple process occurs using a detacher device which is mounted or installed in the counter at the Point of Sale. Either a mechanical device or a high-powered magnet, the detacher releases the security tag’s locking mechanism and allows the tag to be removed.
How do you stop a security tag from beeping?
Although it may sound too simple to be true, yes, you can stop the alarm from going off by covering the tags with a conductive material. The aluminum foil bag example in the beginning works because of a concept called ‘electromagnetic shielding’.
What makes store sensors go off?
What makes store alarms go off? Store alarms usually go off when someone tries to steal an item containing an anti-theft barcode or an unscanned barcode.
What makes the alarm go off when you shoplift?
By attaching security tags to your products, retailers can trigger off an alarm if a shoplifter walks out with a product with the tag still on through the electronic sensors at the exit gates. There are many types of EAS devices you can use like tags, labels, antennas, spider tags and more.
The tags will sound an alarm if they come to close to the antennas. This will make it easy for your security staff to intervene when someone is trying to steal something. The antennas in themselves also look deterrent to potential shoplifters, they will if possible choose a different store to steal from instead.
