New Edge D-Arm Series of EAS Tags Resist Illegal Detachers

Aiming to solve the problem of illegal detachers purchased online being used by shoplifters to remove EAS tags, Prosegur Security, a global leader in security technology, has launched a new series of EAS tags that self-alarm if removed with just a magnet. The new Edge D-Arm EAS tagging solutions from Prosegur, which are available in both pin and lanyard variations, are designed to reduce retail shrink by catching shoplifters before they get anywhere near a store exit.

“Illegal detachers have been a continuing challenge for loss prevention teams,” said Robert Simoneau, CTO of Prosegur’s global retail business unit. “But Edge D-Arm tags offers a solution, and an unpleasant surprise for shoplifters – if they are detached on the shop floor with just a magnet, the tag’s internal alarm will be set off, thus immediately alerting the associates to the attempted theft. For cashiers, removing the tags is easy – they just need to be waived over the EAS deactivator pads most retailers already have at their checkouts, and then removed with a magnetic detacher.”

“Shoplifters have continuously been adept at evolving their strategies to overcome loss prevention efforts,” said Tony D’Onofrio, CEO of Prosegur’s global retail business unit. “The new Edge D-Arm tags create and reinforce an overall sense of control by staying a step ahead of the shoplifters through innovation. As a major investment protection bonus, these tags leverage the existing EAS infrastructure already deployed in retail stores to greatly reduce overall installation cost.”
