Checkpoint Introduces Pinless OPAL Tags

Improved Merchandise Security for Shoes, Sportswear and Sports Equipment

Checkpoint Systems, a global leading provider of source to shopper solutions to the retail industry, has announced the launch of the OPAL Tag. The new pinless article surveillance solution facilitates the protection of footwear, sportswear, outdoor equipment and other hard-to-protect goods.

The one-piece OPAL Tag, developed by Checkpoint’s Alpha High Theft Solutions division, uses a unique locking mechanism that includes small rubber pads. This pinless solution is suitable for a range of goods – including footwear, sportswear, outdoor clothing as well as outdoor and athletics equipment – as it ensures that the device does not damage the items when it is attached or removed.

In addition, the OPAL Tag has two other advantages: It is easy for store associates to apply and remove with just one hand, optimising workflows - and it is unobtrusive, improving the customer experience. For example, if it is attached to a shoe, the customer can still try on the item without having to ask staff for help.

Proven Security Features

Besides the new, optimised handling, the OPAL Tag has a bandwidth of security features that have proven successful for retailers in preventing theft. These include flashing LED lighting to deter potential thieves, showing them that the security device is live. The OPAL solution is also equipped with Alpha 2 Alarm technology, meaning that an alarm will sound if the device passes by an EAS antenna. Attempts at tampering are also detected in this way.

Simon Edgar from Checkpoint Systems commented:

"The OPAL Tag enables retailers to continue displaying popular ítems openly, knowing that they are protected by an Alpha High Theft solution. Moreover, the pinless mechanism causes zero damage to merchandise and store associates will not need to spend a lot of time applying and removing the tags, allowing them to focus on the customer and other tasks.”
