Why do bottle locks cause lazy shoplifters to leave one liquor and wine store empty handed and go to an easier target to steal?
Shoplifters are inherently lazy. They had rather steal merchandise than work for the money to buy it. If they are not lazy, at least they tend to take the easiest route in order to get their “free” stuff. So is the goal of the retailer to stop shoplifting altogether, or to help the shoplifter go somewhere else to commit his crimes. The most efficient way for the retailer to fight the shoplifter war is to “uninvited” him from the store and to visit a competitor.
Bottle locks are a great deterrent to any shoplifter, especially the lazy ones. These are designed by their manufacturer, Alpha Security, to prevent shoplifting on several fronts.
The first bottle lock, EASy Bottle, makes the product unusable to a thief by preventing the bottle from being opened. This type of bottle security denies the benefit of the contents of the bottle because the bottle can only be opened by breaking it. The cap is held on tightly by the Easy Bottle bottle security. An employee can only open the bottle lock with a key that cannot be duplicated. Removing the contents from a broken bottle is work a shoplifter had rather not do. This type of liquor bottle security also contains a detection device that can be sensed by an EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) System at the exit. The EAS System will emit an audible alarm as the bottle lack passes through the field. Shoplifters recognize this and because they want to avoid detection, they proceed to an easier target retailer.
The steel grip liquor bottle security by Alpha Security fits tightly around the neck of the bottle and contains the detection device that will alert the sensors, and has a different look from the EASy bottle locks and lacks the product denial feature, but is an effective deterrent as well.
Using bottle locks will force your lazy shoplifters to exercise – by walking past your store to an easier theft target.
