The mini pencil tag is an excellent general purpose small security tag for all AM systems. The pencil tag requires a strong Superlock* magnetic detacher for pin removal.

Even if you use the Sensormatic Supertag with mechanical detacher, you can convert to this tag by purchasing one of our low cost magnetic detachers.

This tag comes with a smooth shaft swivel head pin, however this tag also accepts grooved pins and a variety of lanyards and ink pins.

This security tag is perfect for those looking for a small and lightweight pencil tag.

Our Universal Superlock Detacher will open all our Superlock tags and your existing magnetic tags.

What does AM and RF mean?

AM and RF refer to the two types of frequencies that Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) operates on.

Acousto Magnetic (AM) systems operate at 58 Khz while Radio Frequency or RF operates at 8.2 MHz.

Do I need AM or RF?

AM: Ideal for apparel, hardware and general retailers.
RF: Ideal for pharmacy, bookstore and supermarkets.

Are our AM security tags compatible with Sensormatic and other AM shop detection systems?

Yes, our AM security tags are compatible with Sensormatic and other AM shop detection systems.

Are our RF security tags compatible with Checkpoint and other RF shop detection systems?

Yes, our RF security tags are compatible with Checkpoint and other RF shop detection systems.

What types of security tags should I be using?

Clothing: For apparel, we usually recommend hard fashion security tags such as pencil or shell security tags.

Lingerie/ Delicates: Tags with smooth pins or alligator tags are preferred as they will not damage clothing.

Accessories: Soft tags, lanyard tags or even security labels.

Specialty Merchandise: Specialty merchandise require customized solutions. We carry bottle tags to secure liquor bottles and optical tags to protect eye-wear from theft.

What are the added benefits of ink security tags?

Ink security tags add an extra visual deterrent without having to complete a system or tag upgrade. If a shoplifter attempts to remove the ink tag without the appropriate tool, the ink ampoules will render the items useless.

Is there a difference between grey, white or black security tags?

No, the colour of the security tags are purely aesthetics and the choice of colour will depend on your preference and the style of your store.

Do you sell Electronic Article Surveillance gates or pedestals?

No, we do not sell any Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) gates. We specialize in security tags and security labels only.

Can I return the tags if I change my mind?
