Bottle locks are nothing new in the loss prevention industry. However they haven’t really been utilized until the last decade and since that time they have become more and more commonplace as the economy has become worse and worse. While their primary use has been liquor stores and grocery outlets looking to stem theft there is another business type that should look into use of this bottle security method.
Bars and clubs are frequently the havens of people looking to escape the grind of everyday life. With so many people crammed into a single building it is not hard to find incidents of theft occurring at the bar. The most common method used by those looking to score a free bottle of liquor is having one or two people in the group distract the bartender while the rest of the group reaches over the bar and swipes one or two items within reach.
While most places serving alcohol do possess camera systems they are usually only employed after the fact and are rarely observed during a bar’s business hours. To dissuade such behavior, having a full suite of bottle locks or even using EASy Bottle locks will make such groups think twice before pulling such shenanigans.
Remember, if they find they can’t remove the locks without special tools then they have no reason to steal them. While most bars tend to stack their liquor against the far wall of the bar that shouldn’t lead them to believe they don’t need extra bottle security. A few extra steps will rarely stop a determined thief.
