Golf Ball Spider Defense

Golf Ball Anti-Theft Spider Defense Detail

Golf Ball Anti-Theft Spider Defense OverallI was surprised to learn early in Retail that Golf Balls are among the most highly shoplifted items … along with Preparation H for a radically different reason. But Spiders as anti-theft defense obscure the brand … or is the selective use of Spider a badge of honor for the most coveted brands? Never having used Spiders I ask, can’t they be attached with the locking hub atop or behind the package? Click the thumbnail to see Spider Medal-of-Honor winners on the shelf edge.

Recent “Breaking News” covers the tale of a London SuperMarket rolling out Anti-Personnel Spikes to manage use of their grounds by homeless and malingerers. A British activist group responded by pouring concrete over the permanent, set-in-place caltrops to disarm the threat.

OtterBox® On Double Lockdown

Otter Box® On Double Lockdown Main

It took a moment for me to realize that the popularity of OtterBox® not its price probably makes the brand a target for theft. But these less-expensive OtterBox offerings are on double lockdown, both front and rear. Paraphrasing the brand’s positioning statement, “They’ve Got The Technology Covered.” In case you didn’t get the fixture’s anti-theft message “Locked Display” is repeated at several levels. CLICK through the gallery for various views, in particular close-ups of how this hook locks to 1” Grid.

OtterBox® Brand Screwed

Otter Box Screwed Display Main

Otter Boc Screwed Display AuxI suppose this is a sign of a product’s popularity if the display unit must be physically screwed down. Compare the front face with the back view in the main photo. Click the thumbnail to learn more about the promotion itself. See that some OtterBox® colors are a Best Buy Exclusive, though I am not sure having a dramatic color inside is as cool as it it looks when empty. I do very much like the echo of typographic style from ARMORSERIES into WATERPROOF, DROPPROOF, DUSTPROOF and CRUSHPROOF.

Louis Vuitton® Solid Safer Box

Louis Vuitton Solid Acrylic Safer Box Main

If you are Louis Vuitton® you need the best-of-the-best, top-shelf anti-theft fixtures. Any of us would love to own this Louis Vuitton luggage tag for free. But it is a bit difficult to pocket the brick of solid acrylic that surrounds and protects it. Note that even the corner fasteners offer no groove or purchase for a tool to unscrew. I resigned myself to walking away, mentally arguing that my initials are not “A.B.” anyway. CLICK through the gallery to step through various views.

ScanLock® in Metallic Finish

Metailic Finish Scan Lock

ScanLock Pegboard 1 copyI wonder if this was a custom order for Scanning Hook Locks in a metallic finish, for I have only ever seen the Matt Grey lock body in the field. The lock tumbler is always red, a defining brand characteristic of ScanLock®. ScanLock Hooks have the advantage of locking all or only some of the merchandise on the hook, That means that you can leave several items accessible for customer selection up front, while locking and protecting the balance of the stack from “sweeping” or mass theft. CLICK the thumbnail for the stock colors of this security fixture. Too bad this one was locked in place. In metallic, it might be a collectors item or have an attractive resale value on eBay. NOTE: ScanLock® is manufactured by my day-job company, Trion Industies, and while FixturesCloseUp is independent fixture reporting (See the ABOUT page for goals and philosophy), I nevertheless do occasionally cover Trion solutions, particularly if unique like this one. Mea Culpa. See many other locking fixtures in the list below.

Gillette® Hook Locks for Uniweb

ScanLock Gilette Mach 3 Turbo Aux

I wonder what creative mind conceived of specifying Scan Hook Locks for Uniweb™? They work, nonetheless, though these ScanLock® are not yet fully stocked with Gillette® merchandise or set in correct locking position. The best varieties of Scan Hook Locks require a key to unlock, then relock without the key. That allows sales associates to unlock and demonstrate multiple items, then quickly relock all facings without the bother of re-inserting the key in each lock. A time and grief-saving advantage. These hooks feature Plastic Slide-In Label Holders for industry-standard FISH-Tip Mounts. The hook locks can be retrofit to existing Scan Hooks right in the field, so items can be locked after hooks and merchandise is already deployed and set in place. NOTE: ScanLock® is manufactured by my day-job company, Trion Industies, and while FixturesCloseUp is independent fixture reporting (See the ABOUT page for goals and philosophy), I nevertheless do occasionally cover Trion solutions, particularly if unique like this one. Mea Culpa. See many other locking fixtures in the list below.

More Apple® Brand Obscurity

Apple Spider Web Safer Box Brand Obscure Aux

Apple Spider Web Safer Box Brand Obscure MainThough a powerful and popular brand, Apple seems to be discriminated against by retailers in-store. Maybe it is due to their bricks-and-motar retail competition, online selling, and lack of discounting. I often see Apple products obscured in stores where they have a minority representation, in favor of alternate brands. They are popular and command brand loyalty. But the retailer seems to carry out of necessity, rather than enthusiasm. This Apply item is relegated to a below eye-level shadowy shelf, obscured by a Safer Box and then completely masked by Spider security. Does all this add insult to brand injury? CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view.

Carabiner Anti-Theft Lock

Caribiner Scan Hook Look Main

Caribiner Scan Hook LockThe unusual shape and configuration is what drew my attention. The only descriptor I could come up with is Carabiner-like. Since I do not get a chance to evaluate operation I cannot comment on easy-of-use or ultimate security. I do think the shape could have been refined, but maybe the strategy was to make the lock look “prickly” rather than “pretty.” Please comment if you think the design makes a scary security statement.

How To Research Fixture Color

FixturesCloseUp Pinterest Board Masthead

Pastel Slatwall Hooks on Green SlatwallHow can you research what your fixtures might look like in color? Start with the Fixture Color Pinterest Boards of FixturesCloseUp. Through them you can see what others have done with color directly in a retail environment. Then you can request chits of appropriate color samples from your fixture manufacturer. Sketches, in felt tip marker for traditionalists, Adobe Illustrator, or colorizing photos in Photoshop should also be called into play. In my opinion, color is not used enough in creating a memorable experience or brand in retail. But then that is just me. So break with the tradition of Beige fixtures in retail. Explore the use of color easily below.

Anti-Sweep on Threaded Hook

A variation on Plug-In Hooks, this threaded Display Hook is equipped with a modest Finial for product retention, and on some such Hooks, minimal anti theft capability. The card holes are undersized relative to the Finial to deter mass “sweeping” or easy theft of all items. The threaded mount holes are an uncommon solution.

3 Anti-Theft Strategies Compared

3 Anti Theft Strategies Compared Main

Interesting to find 3 (or maybe you will call it 2-1/2) anti-theft strategies in the same store, adjacent on the same shelf. And my Fixtures Muse made sure I saw it, by isolating the three offerings with empty shelf space to either side. My first thought was why add a Safer Box to the defenses, particularly when the Safer Box was little larger than the regular package? Next I am particularly critical of anti-theft (and fixture and promotional techniques) that obscure the package face. Not only because the product manufacturer spent boo koo bucks developing and focus group testing it, but consumers actually come to recognize and expect it. So I am left approving of the middle strategy which does not obscure the item offered. Why would you favor on-shelf security instead of Pick Cards? Maybe because you lack well-organized backstock space, can’t afford to divert staff time to Pick Card Product servicing, or have a clientele who like hands on selection and don’t take time to search and retrieve Pick Carded items. I wish I could refer you to studies that compare the techniques and effects on both shrink and pilferage as well as sales. CLICK the gallery for different views.

Temporary Anti-Theft Display

Cell Phone Security Ledge for POP Main

Temporary point-of-purchase display is just that. But what if you need to deter theft for the duration of the display? Here cell phones sold out-of-channel to contractors in hardware retail are security mounted to a short-term display. I’don’t know what held the plastic molded ledges in place, but I tell you first hand they would not budge or come off. Simple Zip Tie held the dummy handsets. Though non-functional phones, you could still have gotten one … the Zip Tie seemed the weak link. But who would want a dummy handset? CLICK the gallery for other looks.

Pick Card Triple Play in Retail

Tiers Pick Card Trays Main

Tiers Pick Card Trays OverviewThis three-high construct is a Pick Card triple play. Each successively higher tier allows the next Pick Card offering to present itself. But displayed “cheek-by-jowl” like this is so visually busy to be distracting. Many similar colors (see that private brands echo and mimic the brand names) and multiplicity of Pick Cards for different size packages make shopping a challenge. Sometimes “negative space” actually helps the presentation. It would be interesting to compare shopper satisfaction to a display with channels of space between Pick Cards … either by rack or Pegboard presentation.

Prilosec Safer Box Aux DetailIt would seem even drug thieves are brand conscious, given that only Prilosec OTC is guarded by a Safer Box among a shelf-full of offerings. One advantage is that the Prilosec need not be pulled from back-stock if Pick Cards were used. Disadvantages are the greater space consumption of the Safer Box, added labor, and customer inconvenience. In any event it was fascinating to find one guarded facing among the many others. Next time I brew my own drugs from OTC meds, I’ll make sure I stick with a branded OTC source.

Skullcandy Logo’d Hook Locks

Skullcandy Branded Loop Hook Lock Main

Skullcandy Branded Loop Hook Lock OverallI can imagine that Ear Buds are a highly shoplifted item. Here the Skullcandy Ear Bud brand seemingly offers free Loop Hook Locks with its merchandise and displays. If the manufacturer provides the anti-theft fixtures, I as retailer might be more inclined to feature that Brand and give it shelf space. Brilliant tactic Skullcandy … plus extra branding at the point-of-purchase. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view

Corrugated Pick Card Unit

Mounted within a huge wire-grid Powerwing, this corrugated Point-of-Purchase unit focuses seasonal attention on Toddler Beds. Surface mount Sign Holders/Talkers display product information. Recessed niches hold stacks of Pick Cards for selection. Pick Cards are a strategy for both high theft items, and large items like this which cannot be easily stocked or shopped on the retail floor. Though very nicely done the unit is made of corrugated and therefore assumed to be temporary, someday to make way for fresh promotions.

Shelf-Top Anchor for Floor Lamps

Floor Lamp Anchor Main Composite

I am terribly torn by the security of these Floor Lamp Shelf-top Anchors. On the one hand they allow the creation of an attractive display visible from a distance across the selling floor. The rank and file, massed floor lamps call out for closer inspection. The anchors would surely deter the normal shopper from attempting to take down a display lamp. By the world is filled with many careless people as well as children who might just try, and topple a lamp in the process. I think I would feel safer with an additional lanyard to secure the top of the lamp. What about you? CLICK the gallery for additional views of this complicated anchor assembly. The anchors appear to mount (and possibly dismount) freely from the backbar. Pushpins (pushbuttons) allow attachment of label and sign holders up front.
