Golf Detacher in store?

Submitted by BLee in Shoplifting

I don't believe I've ever seen one used in a store.

S3's are everywhere. So are the hook detachers (built into the table too at Macy's)

But never the golf detacher.

I only ask because I have one on order but was thinking about "borrowing" one like the 7 S3's I forgot to give back.

Anyone seen one in the wild?

Yeah I've had a couple of hooks along with the S3's

I'm going to keep my eye out for the golf detachers unless someone here knows something I don't.

Good info UK.

I'm going to look at a few local stores and see.

I'll peek under the desk as you suggested.

Nope. I have not seen a Golf Detatcher in the wild lol. Someone on here lied to me and said it was in Walmart.(Liar)

But the hook is only like $5

You have 7 S3 Key?!?!!

Yes I've had 7 S3's through my short career.

Just go into the garden section at walmart overnight and have fun.

I've dumped a few S3's when I've gotten spooked. I rely a lot on my gut feelings, and sometimes I'll just dump the key just incase.

Def not worth catching a burglary charge over a shoplifting one over a key.

One time I was sure they were on to me so I took one and flung it as far as I could over the metal gates out back. And the son of a bitch hit the fence and stuck to it.

But getting back on topic, yeah I've just never seen a golf detacher. I'm going to assume it's attached with a lanyard. Only place I can think of that MIGHT have it is Rite Aid. Maybe BB&B since they use EAS and not Alpha ones.
