2. Door filter: The door filter allows installations maximum 70cm away from the moving door. This will eliminate any false alarm from oving doors.

Boosterbags, best way to shoplift

Although boosterbags is the most common tool used by ORC, most retailers are unaware of the problem. The reason is the fact that boosterbags are made by professional shoplifters and the actual theft does not leave any traces: No opened tags, no cut pins - only empty shelves and empty hangers.

What is a booster bag?

Shoplifting with boosterbags is a daily activity for ORC gangs. Boosterbags can also be covered as many different types. ORC gangs are building the boosterbag very creatively; babystrollers with no babies, jackets, bags and regular clothes.

An effective tool

The advantage of using a boosterbags for shoplifting, is that the shoplifting will take less than 30 seconds. Furthermore no EAS system is able to detect a security tag inside a professional boosterbag and it takes only seconds to fill up the bag with expensive merchandise and walk undetected out of the store. Professional boosterbags look similar to any other retail bag from eg. Prada or Louis Vuitton. And to identify these boosterbags you need a metal detector.

No trace - no problem?

When shoplifters cut off a security tag or open it with an illegal detacher the tag will be found somewhere in the store. When ORC uses a boosterbag and have 5 suits from Hugo Boss, no traces are left - only empty hangers or shelves. Therefore it is very difficult to know how big the problem really is. After many years of experience we know that it is much much bigger than most retailers think.
