WAKE UP! It’s Time to Get Bottle Locks

When you think of bottle locks, you probably think of keeping your wine or liquor safe and secure from those sneaky shoplifters that try to get away with your product.  Most of the time, that’s exactly the case, but other times, you may be surprised to find that you have an employee theft issue, and it’s actually your own team that has been responsible for theft in your store.  No one wants to believe that their own employees are stealing from them, but when you see the signs, it’s time to wake up and take steps to reduce and eliminate the thefts.
Retail anti-theft devices like bottle locks are great for keeping your customers and employees honest by keeping the product secure, yet accessible for those wanting to read and hold the merchandise.  The benefit denial built into these devices stops thieves from gaining access to the actual liquor inside the bottle, so even if they think they can break into it, it will be literally be all over them if they try.  They also have alarms so that if someone exits the store without having them removed during purchase, the EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) you have installed will sound at the exit door.
I can think of at least one example where a store I previously worked for could have saved a good amount of money if they invested in bottle locks to protect their alcoholic beverages.  It’s not every day that you are walking in the stockroom with a co-worker and happen upon a truly unusual find.  What we were looking for was any signs of employee dishonesty, like an empty package, candy wrapper or something similar. We really hit the jackpot on this day when we came to the end of the stockroom and started looking on the shelves.  
At first we didn’t even notice, but we then looked at the bottom shelf and there he was, sleeping on the bottom shelf with evidence of loafing and theft literally all over him.  Not only was he sleeping, but he was still holding a partially consumed, open bottle of wine.   It didn’t end there, because there was also an empty snack cake package next to him on the floor.  
After we made sure that he was still alive and breathing by calling out to him, he finally started to slowly wake up.  As he attempted to get up, several pieces of merchandise fell on the floor because he had it stacked all around him in an attempt to hide his secret space.  After that, he actually said, “Am I in trouble?” You can imagine the conversation that took place after that event.  It wasn’t over at that point though, because we still had to finish up the employee theft investigation.  We returned to the scene of the crime and found additional empty bottles of wine and other merchandise hidden under the shelf.  After looking further into the situation, we found that this was not the first time that the employee did this same thing, and no one had noticed.  The small investment needed to use retail anti-theft devices on your wine and liquor is a small price to pay for the money that you will be saving in the long run.

Watch Your Profits Soar with Bottle Locks

In order to stay profitable, you have to evaluate your strategies every once in a while to see if there has been any positive or negative impact on your business.  Even if your sales have increased throughout the year, if your loss from theft has also increased just as much, you’re right back where you started.  For a liquor store, bottle security can make or break your business.  In the past, there weren’t many merchandise protection solutions for liquor or wine bottles.  But like I said, that was in the past.  Now there are several options available, such as bottle locks, which will keep your merchandise on the shelf for paying customers.  
We all know that liquor and wine comes in bottles of all different shapes and sizes, so you may be wondering if there is a device that will protect your specific products.  Alpha Security also thought of that, and they have the answer to your problem, with many different types of bottle locks that will fit just about any kind of liquor or wine bottle you have in your store.  Some of the options available are the Magna Guarde Bottle Cap, the EASy Bottle, the Crystal Guarde, the EASy Guarde, the S3 Bottle Cap, and the Steel Grip.  No matter which option you choose, you can rest assured that your liquor is protected.  Most people wouldn’t even dream of stealing your products after seeing the devices on top of the bottles.  One look at the locks on top of the liquor or wine bottles is usually enough to make someone think twice about attempting to steal the alcohol.  
The devices work by locking on to the top of the bottles, effectively stopping anyone from opening the liquor to drink or pour into another container.  Even if they somehow get the liquor out of the store, they will not be able to enjoy it, because of benefit denial.  If a shoplifter steals your liquor and tries to remove the security device, the only thing they will likely wind up getting is a damaged bottle, liquor on the ground, and a bruised ego.  The bottle lock on top of the bottle makes certain that you and your staff the only ones that are able to open the bottles until they are sold.  This is because they can only be removed with a special key that you can keep on you or at the registers.  It will allow you to easily help your customers when needed, and keep the checkout process moving quickly without any backup due to removing the devices.
Something else you will want to consider is that bottle locks can also keep minors from getting their hands on your alcohol.  The last thing you want is to find out as the owner of a liquor store, is that underage drinkers got a hold of your stock.  The only way you can ensure this doesn’t happen in your store is by strictly adhering to the laws regarding alcohol sales, and have a good bottle security program in place.  These devices will also assist you in achieving your goal to prevent shoplifting in your store altogether.  In the process, you will keep your products out of the wrong hands, and keep them in the hands of paying, of age customers.

One At A Time- Liquor Bottle Security

Shoplifters look for liquor stores that will make a great target for them. They are specifically looking for attentive employees, liquor bottle security like bottle locks, and easily accessed entrance and exit points.
When they find stores that do have a multitude of varieties of liquor bottle security, the shoplifters will move onto another target. However, if a liquor store is lacking in their security, the shoplifters will steal from them. Even worse, if a shoplifter gets away with their theft once, they will continue to revisit the same store because they know how easy it is to steal from there.
Having bottle locks is an effective and obvious theft deterrent. Having turnstiles and gates at exit and entrance doors is a less obvious, but still useful way to reduce shoplifting.
What a turnstile does is slow down the flow of traffic. If a group of shoplifters comes into a liquor store, they have to enter one at a time. This gives your video equipment a greater chance of taking clearer shots of the suspects. The better the picture, the better the chance each individual suspect can be identified later, if need be.
When shoplifters are exiting the store, they cannot quickly leave. The turnstile and gate will slow them down- maybe long enough for employees to catch up with them and realize what is going on. In particular, if the bottles they are stealing have bottle locks on them- the alarm will sound, giving employees more time to assess and stop a situation.

Can You Afford To Wait? – Bottle Locks

It has become increasingly common that liquor bottles are a major target for organized crime rings. Because they are easily resold, and can fetch a good price during the resale, more crime rings are coming out of the woodwork. Bottle locks are essential in preventing these theft rings from making a target out of your store.
Larger grocery stores and liquor chain retailers have significantly better financial resources to combat organized crime rings with law enforcement tasks forces. They are able to wait out the lengthy investigations, and can afford the massive shrink implications to ensure the task force is successful at putting a stop to the buyers of the stolen liquor. By stopping the buyers, the shoplifters have nowhere to sell the stolen liquor. When the shoplifters can’t make a profit, they have no incentive to steal the liquor in the first place.
Unfortunately, when small business owners face massive losses of liquor at the hands of these same criminal rings, waiting for law enforcement to carry out and complete their investigation could potentially bankrupt the business. 
The process is pretty simple. A task force sets up surveillance in a shop. They wait for the thieves to steal the liquor bottles, and then they are followed. The hope is that the shoplifters lead them directly to the buyers. It will take several thefts and buys to establish a pattern. In the mean time, the business is out all of the liquor being stolen. In some cases, that liquor is held as evidence until the trial is completed. That could be several months, or even a few years away.
While the end result is a more permanent stop to the theft, can you afford to wait that long to recover your merchandise?

Twelve Going On Twenty-One – Bottle Security

A twelve-year-old boy was recently arrested when a neighbor called to report that he was intoxicated. When the police arrived, the boy told them he gets drunk several times a week. The boy’s mother clams to have no knowledge of these incidents or where the alcohol comes from. That means either she is lying and is giving him access to her liquor cabinet, or he has found a store with poor bottle security and is stealing the alcohol.
The troubling part about this story is that this child will inevitably spend his life battling with alcohol addictions. Part of the struggle may come from a pattern of crime as he continues to shoplift alcohol to support his liquor needs.
This is one of many scenarios that liquor stores need to be aware of when they consider bottle security. Obviously a twelve year old should not be able to walk into a liquor store and buy a bottle of liquor. That means that these minors are prime suspects for stealing the product, since they cannot legally buy it. It doesn’t have to be a twelve-year old causing problems. It can be any underage drinker attempting to steal what they cannot legally buy.
There are many different reasons why a shoplifter steals, but the end result is still the same. When faced with bottle security (like bottle locks) many shoplifters will go somewhere else that is an easier target.

Can It Be Defeated? – Bottle Lock

I found a video on line showing how to defeat bottle locks. I was skeptical at first, as most of the bottle security I have used is pretty fool proof. This time, the person was able to get the bottle lock off of their bottle of alcohol.
They claimed that they bought the bottle at a local supermarket, which forgot to remove the bottle lock at the time of purchase. Once they made it home and discovered the lock, they were unable to return to the store since it had closed down for the night.
In some ways, it was actually a fascinating process to watch. The person had found four or five different tools to use in the process, as well as needing at least to extra sets of hands. They reduced the video time to a few minutes, but had actually spent two hours working, and twisting, and prying bits and pieces off of the bottle lock. 
The video showed them using various tools to cut, bend, burn, and mangle the lock off. Eventually they did succeed, but readily admitted that it would have been less frustrating just to wait until the store opened back up the next day.
The end result is that while it is possible to remove a bottle lock without a detacher key, the effort involved to do so is a deterrent in and of itself.

Open to Privatization- Liquor Bottle Security

Many states are toying with the idea of privatizing liquor and alcohol sales. Instead of state run and regulated locations, anyone can potentially apply to have a license to sell wines, liquors and other alcohols out of their stores. This means big box retailers, grocery stores and local corner shops all would have an equal chance to get in on the action, should they choose to. Unfortunately, many who are entering into these inventories do not understand the implications of needing and not having liquor bottle security.
Near the Seattle, Washington area, where liquor sales were privatized within the last few years, the moment everyone was open for business organized crime struck big and struck hard. Many of the stores did not think through the necessity for liquor bottle security to be in place. As a result, some early reports came from businesses loosing upwards of a thousand dollars a day in liquor bottle theft.
By the time the stores figured out what was going on and the losses that they had incurred, hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventory and potential sales had been lost. Liquor bottle security quickly moved into position as the number one priority for these businesses.
Since then, the inventory losses have slowed down. It has been primarily attributed to the implementation of liquor bottle security and overall liquor bottle theft awareness.

A Better Way To Identify- Liquor Bottle Security

Liquor bottle security is not just about bottle locks- even if they are the top of the line Alpha Security EASy Bottle locks. Liquor bottle security is about every piece and part to the security puzzle you have inside your store.
Unfortunately, when you are dealing with a consumable, and often addiction driven, inventory even the best security features won’t stop a truly determined criminal. That is why your liquor bottle security should also include some form of reliable and high quality video surveillance.
When I watch the evening news, the majority of the theft related stories I hear come out of liquor stores. It seem like whenever there is surveillance available, the footage seems to find their way onto the news. Local law enforcement often uses these videos to help find a suspect.
Along the same lines, courts will utilize video surveillance to help them prosecute a case. Whether the suspect is robbing the store or shoplifting from it, a solid prosecution can sometimes be more easily made when there is video surveillance available to corroborate the plaintiff’s case.
Even better than video footage, is high quality video footage. The less grainy and more detailed the picture, the better chance law enforcement has of finding a suspect and then successfully prosecuting them in a court of law.

The Life Cycle of a Bottle- Alpha Security

Alpha Security is no stranger to the life cycle of a liquor or wine bottle. As a company whose mission is to provide successful anti theft devices and deterrents, Alpha Security understands that sometimes liquor bottles can end up having a completely different life of their own.
The typical cycle is the liquor is bottled and then distributed by the maker of that particular brand of alcohol. From there it arrives at a liquor store (restaurant, nightclub, etc) to be sold to an adult over the age of 21. It is here that the bottles sometimes decide to add in a new step in the distribution process.
Many non -chain restaurants or clubs are hard pressed with their available finances to purchase their inventory. As such, they are always on the lookout for a new, cheaper avenue to take- improving their margins and profits along the way. Criminal rings have been initiated, or work with these venues to produce a new stream of inventory- through the theft of liquor bottles from a near by liquor store.
These criminal theft rings will seek out and target liquor stores that do not have Alpha Security EASy bottle for their bottle locks, or a similar kind of bottle security. Without bottle security, liquor bottles are easily stolen, and then resold to these restaurants and clubs.

Protecting Your Employees- Bottle Security

Liquor stores are at a higher risk of being broken into at night, or from being robbed during operating hours. There are many kinds of bottle security to protect your inventory assets, but what are you doing to protect another valuable asset- your employees?
Increasing your store’s overall security is key to protecting your employees from and during a robbery. Some of the best solutions are to use security cameras and alarm systems. Adding a silent alarm behind a counter can be extremely beneficial during an actual robbery attempt.
The silent alarm button will alert local police to the store without being obvious to the robber. Knowing that there is a silent alarm can help employees feel safer before a robbery attempt. They can feel like they are being protected proactively.
Employees also feel safer and more secure during a robbery attempt because they know help is on the way. Even if the robbers leave before the police get there, the employees feel less alone in during a highly stressful, and potentially traumatizing, event.
Bottle security can help to decrease the likelihood of a robbery even taking place. When potential robbers see that there are security cameras, monitors, signage, and even bottle locks, they know there is a heightened level of awareness and security features in place. Compared to a liquor store that does not display any meaningful bottle security, the robber will be more likely to go on to that store.
