Security Tag Stuck

Lo and behold! I took a shirt from the store to see if I could take the tag off. I also snagged two shirts that didn't have security tags. Plus, an item that I bought was actually on sale and I saved $100. See, I actually DO buy things sometimes. Of course that's mixed in with swapping tags on two of the items returned, but you get my point. I even left an item there that I had stolen because it didn't fit. Something that I don't usually do, but I had second thoughts about the item.

As I was leaving the store it...didn't even go off. I was kinda disappointed in that. I have a theory that half of them don't even work, but its very presence stops most people.

So far I have tried:
1. A bent hanger.
2. A bent skewer.
3. 2 pliers
4. The magnets on my purse. (Yep, stole that purse, too.)

So far no luck.

Best Security Tag Removal Techniques

Wow! I never thought that anyone would be so brazen as to put some of this stuff on YouTube!! I already have issues with posting an anonymous blog. I worry that my other readers will find this blog and chastise me--or worse the cops. My field requires a background check and I have always passed. I'm torn--in fact I have cut or torn fabric to get the sensor off. It doesn't leave much of a scar if you are careful. But carrying a tool, that's BRILLIANT!! So tempting to discover a tool and then continue. But i truly am starting to feel bad about it all.

In any case, what are the chances that these people ACTUALLY aren't shoplifters?

A bent "thingie"

Shoplifting 101--teaching kids to lift

1. Know where your cameras are.

2. If you've been CAUGHT shoplifting before, clearly you aren't doing it right and you shouldn't be teaching ANYONE how to do something if you aren't doing it right.

3. If you are going to live a life of crime, don't get caught. The consequences are far too dire.
