We have a customer that was having problems with the theft of liquor that is boxed, such as Crown Royal. The bottle locks that they have will work but they do not want to open the box to put the bottle lock on and then close up the box again. This poses a unique problem with bottle security but one that is clearly solvable.
Alpha Security has a product line called Spider Wraps. You have probably seen these in electronics’ and computer stores. A Spider Wrap is a small hockey puck shaped device with thin wires that go to a base. The wires wrap around all four sides of the box the hockey puck device can be on top or a side. The wires tighten around the box. If a shoplifter pulls to hard on the wires or cuts them the built in sounder starts screaming a very loud alarm tone.
One of the great advantages of this type of bottle lock is that it also is reusable. The cashier simply uses an S3 key to release the spider wrap and it is ready to be reused. The big advantage of any type of bottle lock is that in the liquor bottle security world it get the high theft merchandise back out on the sales floor from behind the counter.
Alpha Security produces Spider Wraps in a number of types and sizes. There are one alarm”, two alarm or three alarm types. A one alarm used as a bottle lock will trigger your EAS system at the door. A two alarm will do that and self-alarm if the cable is cut or the housing is tampered with. A three alarm Spider Wrap used for bottle security will do all that plus it will self alarm and continue to alarm for 10 minutes after the shoplifter has left the store.
This is a big jump from the beginning with EASy Bottle, bottle locks. You have the tools available to take back your store from the shoplifters. Prior to EASy Bottle coming onto the market Retailers were very limited in their liquor bottle security choices.
