Prosegur Security Launches New Wonder Glide EAS Tag With a Retractable Pin

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (March 3, 2021) – Following a two-month soft launch, during which millions of units were sold, Prosegur Security, a global leader in security technology, has officially launched its new Wonder Glide EAS tag which aims to solve the problem of loose pins causing employee and customer injuries.

“The Wonder Glide tag incorporates the pin into the housing of the tag itself using an innovative approach that ensures that the pin stays safely inside the tag when not in use,” said Robert Simoneau, CTO of Prosegur’s global retail business unit.  “The tag is applied to merchandise with a simple push of a button, and can be removed with just one hand, saving time and eliminating the need for the store personnel to sort tags and pins after use. Its clever design includes three available locking mechanisms for optimal security and can be color-customized to specific retail environments.”

According to Simoneau, the Wonder Glide has another unique feature that adds to its versatility: the tag can be reconfigured by store associates to be used with a pin or with a lanyard in a matter of seconds, and is easily adaptable to self-checkouts. “This means each store’s team can quickly adjust to the changes in inventory that needs to be protected without having to purchase different tags,” he explained.

“With this latest addition to our lineup of innovative EAS tags, Prosegur is again underscoring its commitment to supporting the retail industry with core loss prevention innovation that can make a difference in both improving efficiency and reducing shrink,” said Tony D’Onofrio, CEO of Prosegur’s global retail business unit. “Variations of this tag are available with AM, RF, or RFID. It is an ideal solution to support the expansion of self-checkout deployments which are projected by the IHL Group to grow 178% in the next two years.” 

The data sheet for the Wonder Glide tag is available at Prosegur’s website, and the video of this new tag in action can be viewed on YouTube.
