Using bottle locks by Alpha Security has the desired benefit of providing liquor bottle security through its application, saving expensive brands from pilferage and unauthorized pouring, and deterring shoplifters by increasing the risk of detection. The deterrent factor of the bottle lock generally forces the shoplifter who is determined to steal a particular brand to visit an easier target, one that uses no bottle security.
But the use of liquor bottle security by the retailer can have the less desirable result of “directing” the shoplifter to a cheaper brand, one that is not protected by an Alpha Security bottle lock. Although the value of the stolen item is less than the original target, a loss might still occur.
Does this mean that the retailer should give up and not use a bottle lock at all? Hardly. The retailer has the option of protecting more of even his second tier merchandise with Alpha Security products.
The EASy bottle bottle lock fits over the top of the bottle and prevents the top from being removed, as well as providing EAS technology to detect the item being carried out of the store. Some liquor retailers refer to these as “toppers”.
Another type of liquor bottle security is offered by the Steel Guard, which incorporates EAS technology into a band that is locked around the neck of the bottle, but allows the top to be removed. These are called “neckers” by some of the retail users.
Using a complete EAS system like the ones available from Checkpoint Security Systems allows the liquor retailer to protect not only the high end products, but also the less expensive alternatives that are attractive to thieves. High theft accessories like flasks and bar tools can be protected through the use of Checkpoint tags and labels which cause an alarm to sound when the item is being removed from the premises, just like the EASy bottle protection.
