External theft can occur from an amateur or Organized Retail Crime (ORC) group, and either way, it severely impacts your bottom line. Whether it’s a $1,000 or $50 theft, those losses add up over time, leaving your bottom line in the red. There’s hope – thanks to readily available technology, there are strategies, tools, and affordable security devices for shop owners and retailers to protect themselves. 

At Product Protection Solutions (PPS), we can readily provide retailers with security devices of all types and sizes in the United States. Throughout this article, we’ll go through the top five anti-theft devices that can reduce your losses and help you create a theft resistance shop. 

5 Anti-Theft Solutions: Security Devices for Shops

Are you ready to manage your shrink so you can increase your revenue and profit? Here are five effective security devices for shop owners and retailers that’ll help protect your bottom line.

Alarming Quad Wraps & Cable Locks

Quad wraps and cable locks are the ideal solutions for protecting products like baby formula, luggage, sporting goods, high-value merchandise, and any item that isn’t compatible with tags or safers. 

If you choose to add the alarm option, you can select from 1, 2, or 3-alarm protection depending on the size of your store. The security alarm will sound if it’s tampered with or if the cable is cut. 

Device Benefits 

  • Flexibility options to work on a variety of merchandise 
  • Reusable 
  • 10+ year lifespan 
  • Compatible with EAS and RFID systems  


Available in numerous sizes, safers are transparent plastic security cases that allow you to display the product openly. This tool is the ideal protection for small, easy to conceal items (health and beauty products). Thanks to its numerous sizing options, you can use them to protect electronics and food items. 

Depending on your needs, you can select hinged, slotted, or specialty safers. Additionally, accessories are available that include blister holes or hanger options.

Device Benefits 

  • Reusable 
  • Allows for open merchandising 
  • Works with existing planograms 
  • 10+ year lifespan 
  • Compatible with EAS and RFID systems  

Sweep Theft Security: The Swing Gate 

This security device works great for products that are difficult to track after being stolen, have a high resale value, or are easy to turn around in a non-retail environment. It protects your merchandise without impeding the shopping experience. When the customer is ready to buy, they can select the item without assistance. The Swing Gate uses localized sensors, so you’ll receive notifications when someone opens the gate.

Device Benefits 

  • Strong visual deterrent against thieves 
  • Challenging for thieves to access several products at once 
  • Receive immediate notifications 
  • Reduces shrinkage
  • Setup custom electronic notifications

RFID Tags and Labels 

All tags and labels are customizable and include specific identification to support your RFID requirements. They allow you to manage, track, and protect your products daily. 

The tags and labels will help prevent theft and assist with inventory management. Did you know RFID is more effective than barcodes? They don’t need a line of sight between the RFID tag/label to accurately read it, which allows you to inventory your store within minutes using handheld RFID readers.

Device Benefits 

  • Automates data collection
  • Data can be rewritten or modified
  • Readers can review multiple tags and labels at once 
  • Reusable
  • No scanning needed

With the noticeable amount of energy drinks, wine, and liquor shrinkage within the last few years, bottle security devices are a great option to reduce your loss. Bottle locks and cases are available in a variety of sizes and styles, including: 

  • Bottle Security Collars 
  • Premium Bottle Collar
