New Tags Address High Theft, High Velocity Categories to Protect Entire Store Inventory

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - Tyco Retail Solutions (www.tycoretailsolutions.com), a leading global provider of retail performance and security solutions sold direct and through authorized business partners worldwide, announces the expansion of its portfolio of Sensormatic acousto-magnetic Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) hard tags and alarming wraps. The newly available tags address many high theft, high velocity categories and give retailers a broad, comprehensive solution to protect their entire store.

  • New alarming wraps with smaller footprint - provides a strong visual deterrent while not interfering with brand promotion on packaging for electronics and power tools
  • New alarming tags - offers effective protection for apparel, accessory and footwear applications
  • Sporting goods tags - protects variety of items including bats, golf clubs and sunglasses
  • Super pencil, saucer, optical and jewelry specific tags for apparel and accessories - applications include leather goods, designer jeans, eyewear and jewelry
  • New multi-use detacher - effectively removes all magnetically detachable Sensormatic tags for all items including high-end wines, spirits and appliances
