Wrap a rubber band around the pin several times and keep twisting it off. If that doesn't work take 2 pliers, put them on each end of the tag and bend downwards. Pin should pop right off.
No Magnet will work?
Unlikely, considering it's a piece of plastic with a pin.
so how do you remove these? you carry pliers with you or do you avoid them.
I don't carry pliers with me, but if you don't want to look suspicious do the rubber band method in a dressing room.
so detaching this manually won't set off alarms?
If you take the gator tag off and are certain there's no other hidden tags anywhere, then you're golden. Take gator tag off, search for hidden tags, dispose of all tags and get out. It's probably not that easy though, so be aware of LP and dressing room counters, if you're going to take the dressing room method.
Also be aware that if you set off the alarms, employees cannot stop you just for the alarm. They may say come back but ignore them. The only way they can stop you is if they saw you conceal or steal, so be smart.
Best of luck and happy lifting!
Thanks for the info, been lifting for a while but only electronics, recently into clothing. Thanks again.
