Walmart/Target security devices & tips
I'm sure you've seen those little plastics that make it much harder to jack a wanted item. The first of these gizmos are the tan plastic endings on a shelf so you can't take the item off it. You need to get an employee who uses some long black device to unlock it. The second is the spider wrap devices. It's a black circle, with wire cables coming out of 4 sides to wrap around each edge of the box. If you tamper with it, the built in alarm goes off. The third, those damn chunky plastics on clothes and other apparel. Well do you guys know the names of these devices, or better yet the names of the tools to remove them? Or perhaps you have your own little Macgyver way of removing them. Any help is appreciated!

spider wires you can just cut the box take the item out leave the wire on the box, it wont go off.
Clothing tags if not ink tags use a magnet and a knife put very powerful magnet behind tag and pry open with a knife
tags on end of shelves cut the part of the package that holds it on the rack dummy.
for clothing tags use a pocket size pair of wire cutters, ink ones don't go off. Just press the clothing together so the metal connecting bar is visible. just clip that.
That's usually not possible because the metal can't be exposed even if you press the clothing together

I usually put all bags and other tags in the box, and reapply the spider to leave the box where I got it.
I have never set off a alarm, but assume if you cut the wire, it will sound.
