I assume you're trying to create a Faraday cage? Yes, that should work. Just make sure the gaps between the wires on your Faraday cloth are smaller than the wavelength emitted by the RF gates.

Also, do not let that Blu-Ray player connect to the internet. If whatever store you stole it from is diligent, they may report the serial number of that Blu-Ray player as stolen. Later, if that player connects to the internet, and tries to "phone home" to see if there are any firmware updates, it may send its serial number with it. Some automated system may recognize that that serial number was reported as stolen, and that could end up with police at your door. I don't know how sophisticated these anti-theft systems are, but I would not take that chance, if I were you. Just have it be an offline Blu-Ray player.

It’s rated for 100 wavelength. What are the gates wavelength?

Actually, now that I looked into it, pretty much any Faraday bag should work. According to this website, some RF anti-shoplifting towers have frequencies of up to 13.56 MHz. Convert that frequency to a wavelength, and you get... 22.1 meters. Even the shittiest Faraday bag would be able to block that out. So, as long as they're only using RF towers, and as long as you don't leave any gaps when you wrap it up, you should be fine.

Now that I've looked it up, yes, it looks like aluminum foil would indeed work. You just need to make sure that the product is completely wrapped in it - small gaps could let the radio waves leak through, and trigger the alarm.

I don't know. All the Faraday cages I've seen have been actual cages composed of crisscrossing wires. I'm not sure if a solid plane of conductive metal would have the same effect. I'll do some research on this, and let you know what I find.

Walmart has really cut back on security lately. It’s pretty safe to steal there now.

I heard Walmart reorganized. Making more AP positions. They actually upped their game recently giving more authority to lower positions. For example door greeters and CSR's are yellow vests(AP) now.

What type of tags are on it?

Spider wrap, and probably one more tag inside. I don’t like removing tags unless they’re small enough to flush. It gives lp evidence if they’re watching

Thanks. It’s actually my way of getting away with it. Detaging takes time and leaves evidence

Have you actually gotten anything out of the store with it?

I took a knife with spider wrap and waved it between the towers for a text. It did work, I’m just scared of actually walking out :/

Have faith in the laws of physics. Once you've wrapped and concealed it, no radio waves can penetrate the Faraday cloth. The only way you could be caught then is if someone observed you conceal it.

I think I’m just gonna do it tonight. If the alarm goes off I’ll keep walkingz

Good luck.

i did it. took the spider wrap off cuz im a puss and found no tags inside so idk it wasn't an official rfid wrap steal :/

Oh well, at least you got it. Enjoy your free Blu-Ray player!

Thanks for all your help. And for the others on this forum. I took a risk by leaving spider wrap in the trash. The safest way is to not leave behind tags like that.

Put the spider wire somewhere where it will be hidden awhile l like on the back of a high shelf or in a grill on display or if your sneaky enough put it in somebody's basket when they're not looking

Nice. Do you have a link to the material you used? There's alot out there that claim to block signals.
