Checkpoint Systems Announces Two Solutions for Protecting Boxed Retail Store Merchandise


Checkpoint Systems, a leading global supplier of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) and RFID solutions for the retail industry, today announced StrapLok, a high-theft alarming solution designed to attach directly to existing nylon straps on boxed merchandise, and Bug Tag 2 for the protection of six-sided packaged goods, tablets and display merchandise.

StrapLok

Many high-theft products received by retailers arrive with nylon straps around the box to protect inside contents. StrapLok quickly attaches onto the existing nylon straps. Because of dynamic tension adjustment, it is compatible with low-quality, loose straps found on boxes already pre-strapped from manufacturing. StrapLok actively monitors the strap's tension and will only alarm if the strap is being cut. This is one of the key advantages of the StrapLok as it will not generate false alarms.

Key features include the following:

• AM or RF technology

• 2- or 3-Alarm®

• 95 dBA alarm and flashing LED light

• Isolated sound chamber

• Quick and easy to apply and remove; tough, secure and reusable

Bug Tag 2/Snare

The Bug Tag 2 is specifically designed to protect a variety of six-sided boxed merchandise and electronics, such as tablets, sell-through packaged merchandise as well as displayed merchandise. Its multifunctional design allows the Bug Tag 2 to be converted to a line-alarm" system, combining it with the specially designed "Snare" accessory. Applications include protecting display tools, sporting goods, kitchen appliances and handbags. Any attempts to cut the coiled cable or the CableLok lanyard results in the alarming of the Bug Tag 2 module.

Key features include the following:

• AM or RF technology


• 2- or 3-Alarm

• 95 dBA alarm and flashing LED light

• Compact design

• Quick and easy to apply and remove; reusable module; disposable adhesive sled

• Snare accessory for securing display merchandise

"We are excited to bring to market these new and innovative solutions," said Stuart Rosenthal, VP of sales and marketing for Checkpoint/Alpha High-Theft Solutions. "These offerings are a direct result of listening to our customers' needs and combining with our deep understanding of the competition and retail market to bring the very best solutions to market."
