Video games should not be tagged unless they are inside one of those plastic anti-theft cases that can be removed by using an S3 handkey.

As stated I have been busy yesterday and I apologize. Thanks for the reminder. I will start working on it right now. It should be done by tonight. Thank you.

A booster bag would be your best bet but be aware, being in possession of one while shoplifting immediately raises your sentence to a felony no matter the amount you’ve lifted

Otherwise there’s no way to detect them without opening the package

If the store has no towers there’s no way a tagged item could go off considering all tags are nothing more than thick pieces of plastic (besides spider wrap but even they need towers to activate.) Tags send a signal to the towers to set the alarm sound off. Tags themselves don’t make noise.

Me and the moderator of r/Carhopping have advertised this a bit so hopefully people start pouring in because I've been notified twice if this board doesn't become active it's just gonna be deleted. I mean, the other one on Reddit only has like 137 subscribers, so it's not that big either, but bound to be deleted by Reddit anyways so I'm moving everyone here.

Idk man, it’s a great idea but I’d rather have a utility knife concealed, it’s legal in just about all 50 states and I’m fairly certain there’s no added charges if you have a knife on you during shoplifting as long as the knife is legal in your state, and taping a blade to your finger comes with the added risk of accidentally cutting someone which would only add assault to some degree onto petty theft

People have said eBay is a reliable source for detachers but I personally have never bought from eBay so I have no clue what sellers are reliable enough. I'm sure someone else can answer that.

As for magnets, any neodymium magnet rated N52 will work sufficiently. You can find tons of them on Amazon, a much more reliable source.

You would be better off finding one that's labelled on the listing N52, because large doesn't always mean strong, and the listing you're looking at doesn't have a specification on its rating or how strong it is, they just claim it's "Super Strong". Although the listings are kind of confusing because the same people are selling the presumably same thing in a 2 pack and then claim it's N52.

To be fair I'd just look up N52 neodymium magnet and if you can't find anything within your liking you can try that.
