Gripzo in the UK
Virgin Media in the UK were hammered by theft of smartphones, especially the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xr were hot targets. The traditional display security solution with electronic alarms and retractable cables was simply not good enough anymore. Cut and run being the main MO of the shoplifters, the fact that the alarm goes off after a store theft does not seem to bother the shoplifters. These thefts drove store staff crazy. Recently, Gripzo’s mechanical lock down for smartphones was installed. It was an absolute delight for the staff. Why? After the deployment of the Gripzo smartphone antitheft brackets the shoplifters came into the store but after having felt and seen the sturdy security clamps which were protecting the iPhones and all other live handsets in the store they backed off.. Staff are happy with the use of the Gripzo mechanical anti-theft brackets as fitting in phones is real easy and they have the opportunity to take a phone out and show it to customers via the unique quick release option. Lock down and quick release display security brackets #bestofbothworlds.
Why deploy mechanical security fixtures for smartphones?
