A generation ago, bottle security was allowing the clerk to keep a baseball bat behind the counter. We could shake down anyone who we thought might be stealing from us. If we were wrong, well, that was ok. We would just yell at them to never come back and send them on their way.
Times have changed. Bottle security is vastly different, as are the legal confines that we need to act within. If we accuse someone of stealing, not only do we need to be right, but also we have to be able to prove that they stole from us. Otherwise we can be found liable in a court of law, and who wants to have to pay a shoplifter who was stealing from us?
Bottle security is about adapting and adjusting to today’s business climate, not wallowing in how things used to be. Advancements in technology allow our bottle security to do some of the work for us. Instead of confronting every person we suspect of shoplifting, we can use bottle locks, like the EASy Bottle, to deter them from the start.
If the Alpha Security EASy Bottle lock is not removed an alarm will sound as the person exits with a bottle. That gives us cause to approach, not accuse, but to approach them and ask them to pay for the product.
Visit the Loss Prevention Store to purchase EASy Bottle bottle locks by Alpha Security and your Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system.
