THOROFARE, N.J.--()--Checkpoint Systems, a leading global supplier of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS), RFID solutions and Alpha High-Theft Solutions for the retail industry, today introduced the Alpha OptiLok™, its next generation of specialized tags for eyewear protection.

The new hard tag offers an improved and refined design to enhance the ease and speed of application/removal without any security compromises. It is based on a well-proven adjustable grip mechanism used in previous eyewear tags, but with an ingenious locking mechanism allowing easier application and removal. The locking mechanism is compatible with Checkpoint’s traditional S3 Key and is available in two sizes (large and extra deep) as well as two technologies (AM or RF).

According to Stuart Rosenthal , Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Checkpoint’s Alpha High-Theft Solutions, “We’ve learned a lot from our work with eyeglass retailers over the years, which has led us to this major improvement in protecting prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. Our new OptiLok tag provides durable construction with protective rubber pads that securely hold and protect more than 95 percent of eyewear frames, while achieving fast and easy applications and removals.”

OptiLok is available immediately for normal (large) frames, while an extra deep version for thick plastic eyewear frames will be available later in Q1 2018.
