Bottle security has had its challenges in the past, especially when the content of the bottle is something that people enjoy, but don’t necessarily like spending a lot of money on. Alpha Security has developed unconventional ways of liquor bottle security through the application of secure bottle locks that fit around the neck or over the cap of various sized bottles of liquor and wine.
Liquor bottles, by virtue of their size and availability, have long been a target of shoplifters who can resell the stolen product, trade it, or use it themselves. Bottle locks from Alpha Security put a stop to shoplifting bottled merchandise from liquor stores.
The bottle locks work in two ways: The lock that covers the top of the bottle precludes the potential thief from using the product since the cap can’t be removed without damaging the bottle, except by the salesclerk. The lock also contains an RFID that is identified by an EAS (electronic article surveillance system) like those provided by Checkpoint Systems that will cause an alarm as the merchandise passes the Checkpoint System at the customers’ exit.
There is no question that the use of bottle locks reduces theft and increases profit. The only question is – how much? A large number of retailers use bottle locks selectively on their premium top shelf brands, and have been able to display them openly at a greatly reduced theft rate.
Retailers can keep their wine and spirits bottles (and their caps) secure from shoplifters with the use of bottle security from Alpha Security products.
