I live in Germany so idk how it's different and if it's even different here

But anyways I wanted to ask how the Towers at the Grocerys go off? Like someone asked a similar Question with lifting Gum and all, so now I created a Post and wanna ask if anyone can list a few tipps and ways the alarm gets triggered

If you lift Gum or Condoms, ... Is there just an simple RF Tag in the barcode ? If Yes what's the simplest way of blocking it ?

Because idk if bigger Grocery stores make it that easy to conceal stuff even if your body creates a Blindspot

If you mean ordinary barcodes on a pack of gum, crisps, food... bruh, those are for inventory / scanning at checkout purposes, they don't set of alarms. If your grocery store has towers its because they have a section for higher end items like some electronics or power tools that ARE protected by extra tags, such as plastic "hard tags". And only walking out with these tagged items would set of towers. I live in Europe too. Stay safe out there.

Idk if harder in Europe, but for the barcodes you'd wanna provide a picture. If it's a thin white barcode tag or a sticker with wire patterns, a quick slice with a pocket knife will do to disable it afaik.

generall most stores have an under 10 policy where if youre taking less than the security guards hourly wage they do not care. so gum and condoms should be easy

Do some googling for the stores you're lifting from, and look into what they're doing to stop it. Not trying to sound like a smart ass either, I was surprised what I found looking that up for grocery stores in Canada. See if you can find what kind of items they're tagging to go off(if the towers are actually doing anything, they might just be there to scare you). Things like meat and dairy are pretty high theft and seem likely, if they are actually tagging items.

I'm from Germany too and I don't lift there anymore because I have had the towers go off in several different stores even though I had removed all tags from the items. I'm not sure how they do it.
