A Shoplifter's Guide to Tags

Gator Tag - Long security tag with a spike. No ink.

Removal: Rubber band, pliers

Wrap a rubber band around the pin several times and twist off. You can also use 2 pairs of pliers. Put them on each side of the tag and bend downward.

Ink Tag - A tag that releases ink when someone attempts to remove it manually. These tags do not explode or set off alarms.

Removal: Magnet, freeze

You can use a standard magnet to remove these. You can also freeze the liquid and leave it in the freezer overnight, then remove it manually (the easiest option without a magnet).

RFID - Small sticker tag.

Removal: Your finger

These are stickers. Peel them off.

Spider Wrap/2alarm - Big alarm that wraps around high end products with wires. Very fucking annoying.

Removal: S3 Handkey

Spiderwrap is one of the most common security tags. They are frequently removed with an S3 Handkey.

3alarm - Padlock security tag. Electronic. Also sets off security gates.

Removal: S3 Handkey

3alarm can also be removed with an S3 Handkey.

Pencil Tag - Hammer-shaped security tag.

Removal: Magnet

You will need a small stack of neodymium magnets. Stack them, and place them on the flat part of the "head".

Soft Tag - Small adhesive security tag.

Removal: Your finger

These are small and adhesive. Remove them.

Hard Tag - Square security tag with a spherical nub.

Removal: Magnet

A magnet can fit on the small circular area on the back.

Lanyard Tag - Large boxy tag with a cable.

Removal: Scissors

Literally just snip the cable.
