--17th April 2018
17 April 2018 – Checkpoint Systems, a leading global supplier of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS), RFID solutions and Alpha High-Theft Solutions for the retail industry, today introduced the Alpha OptiLok™, its next generation of specialized tags for eyewear protection.
The new hard tag offers an improved and refined design to enhance the ease and speed of application/removal without any security compromises. It is based on a well-proven adjustable grip mechanism used in previous eyewear tags, but with an ingenious locking mechanism allowing easier application and removal. The locking mechanism is compatible with Checkpoint’s traditional S3 Key and is available in two sizes (large and extra deep) as well as two technologies (AM or RF).
According to Irene Fernandez, EMEA Product Manager Alpha High Theft Solutions, “We’ve learned a lot from our work with eyeglass retailers over the years, which has led us to this major improvement in protecting prescription ewyeglasses and sunglasses. Our new OptiLok tag provides durable construction with protective rubber pads that securely hold and protect more than 95 percent of eyewear frames, while achieving fast and easy applications and removals.”
• Available in AM or RF technology
• Durable construction
• Quick application and removal
• Easy to recycle and reuse
OptiLok is available immediately for normal (large) and extra deep frames (April 2018).
