– Deactivator or Detacher
– Electronic Tag


Special tags and labels are fixed to merchandise or books. These tags or labels are removed or “deactivated” by the clerks when the item is properly bought or checked out.

Labels are deactived using a “Label Deactivator”.

While ringing up purchases a cashier should pass each product label across the “Deactivation Pad”.

To remove a Hard Tag a cashier uses a “Detacher” which releases the pin.

After a label is deactivated or a tag is removed the customer can then pass by the antenna without any alarm.

At the exits of the store, a detection system sounds an alarm or otherwise alerts the staff when it senses active tags are passing by.
