We have been fans of Shell Tags for years.

Two reasons: Sleek design with high security.

With a smooth symmetrical shell design, the pin head matches the tag size and reduces tag attack and garment tearing by shoplifters. The pin is smooth and will not damage threads like grooved pins do. This version has no internal ink ampules unlike the alternative Shell Ink Tag with added embedded Benefit Denial ink ampules for maximum deterrence and tamper resistance.

The smooth pin has less chance to damage threads like grooved pins do. No need to tag garments through seams. Attach tags in a visible position.

A Multi-purpose hard security tag for application to a wide assortment of apparel.

Please note due to supply chain issues, Micro Tamper Resistant Tags (Shell Tags)  may be substituted for Mini Square tags. Please contact [email protected] for questions regarding this.

Size: Shell Tag is 2.09” in diameter

Frequency: AM 58 kHz and RF 8.2 MHz

Color: Black

Lock: Superlock*. Superlock tags are not opened by old low power magnetic detachers. Most security tags today are Superlock compatible and require a more powerful magnet to release the pin. If you are unsure if your existing detachers will open this tag, give us a call or email us a photo of your existing detacher and tags. Generally a flat dish shaped magnetic detacher is required. Our Universal Superlock Detacher will open this tag and 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?

You have 30 days from the purchase date to send it back to us for a refund. This is only allowed if the product is unopened in its original undamaged packaging.

Note that return postage costs are at your own cost. Return postage is only covered if the product purchased is faulty.
