Do the EAS scan vertically?

I was wondering if I was able to just take an item with a spider wrap on it or RFID tag and just hold it up above the towers while walking out with it and make no noise.

The EAS towers have a certain threshold area, generally speaking if you lift the item high enough above you might be able to bypass them although specifically at our store and others there is a bar above the towers preventing people from taking carts out of the store(the carts have poles) which would also render this method useless. Also since there is always LP posted at the door you would be looking ridiculous holding your hands up high. I wouldn't try this method tbh. Probably best get rid off the spider wrap
