I See You

I am a security tag for spectacles and spectacle frames.  Customers can try on a pair of sunglasses, but I will trigger the alarm if they leave with it without paying for it.

This ultrasonic welded alarm device can be positioned at different levels on spectacle frames of different shapes and sizes on display in shops, yet still allowing customers to fit the frames with ease.  Once secured on to a frame, a nifty detaching tool is used to unlock and remove the tag, now ready to be re-used.

The Way

Injection moulding was selected for the design of this product.  The main reason was a good production price per unit, based upon production in high volumes.  Various colours and material types are available to fit user requirements for this product.  This is a high investment, but low unit cost route with good quality and reputable components.

The Who

This product is part of a family of security tags, all based upon similar technology, but with different mechanical application requirements.  This is a good example of how a sound and practical design approach can be of benefit when it comes to designs that have to fit onto products of various shapes and sizes, yet still part of the same family of items.

The Where

Anti-theft measures are important in the eye care industry, especially when the customer has to try on items of high value in a retail store environment.

Our Journey

In-store anti-theft devices developed into a well-established business and suppliers in this field have to offer a complete range of applications and product-specific solutions – some discrete and others more prominent, but not obtrusive or hindering a potential sale.
