Vise4 X

Vise4 X quickly secures a wide range of consumer electronics by locking the product between a set of aesthetically pleasing and remarkably strong aluminium arms. These arms are tethered to an alarm-protected security recoiler allowing the customer unencumbered use of displayed merchandise. All functions of the displayed product remain available giving a positive customer experience and leading to increased sales. With multiple arm sizes, RTF is able to secure nearly every retail device. Multiple arm configurations are available to ensure full control over how secure your devices are, with a maximum of six arms per device and as little as two.

Charge Cap
Charge cap

Charge caps align into the ridges of the charge mount using rare earth magnets to position the device perfectly, every time. Gold plated contact pins between the cap and mount allow an electric current to flow freely to the device for complete charging. With the Vise4 X charge cap and mount, Tablets are easily positioned in either landscape or portrait instantaneously. A blue LED light visually confirms full power charging. Vise4 X provides a large variety of fixture and wall display options that draw attention to the product, not the security system.

Charge Cap assemblies for Vise4 X consist of Charge Cap, Charge End, Thin Two Hole Nut and Tape where applicable for charge ends.

Available Mount Colours

Charge Ends
Charge ends

Vise4 X allows displayed devices to remain fully charged giving the customer an opportunity to interact with, and experience the product. Vise4 X charge ends are produced to fit Micro USB, Samsung, Apple, and handheld game system inputs. Charge ends can be quickly connected and disconnected to and from the charge cap using high security tools. The charge end security wings, 90 degree locking cable, and its low profile design eliminate the opportunity for customers to unplug the charge end from the device.

Electronic Recoiler
Electronic Recoiler

As a critical piece of RTF’s security system it is produced following strict quality guidelines, hi-tech machinery, better materials and design.

RTF’s aircraft cable tethers are the strongest in the industry and incorporate PreTheft technology that sounds an alarm if there is any attempt to cut the cable. Designed in a variety of configurations, tethering is available in light to heavy, mechanical and alarmed, and will work for small products as well as large applications.

Our updated Recoilers will minimizes false alarms and have been developed for easier and faster use and installation. The slotted nut on our Recoilers is shorter so it is more appealing and easier to install.

Mechanical Recoiler

The new Recoiler4 is configured to allow for the straight mechanical aircraft cable to be spooled. The overall look of the recoiler will remain constant to allow for higher volumes and lower costs.

With a plastic coated steel cable and high quality tensioning spring, the recoiler is durable and virtually inseverable.

RTF’s recoilers can be used in conjunction with the security systems offered or on their own using a Lock Cable to wrap through smaller products.

Alarm Controllers
Alarm and charging system

A new 8 port controller is introduced with a wireless FCC, reprogrammable key fob and a low per port cost to help save money on displayed devices. This new controller is easily recognizable through the blue branding colour and is smaller and lighter than any of its predecessors from RTF. Simple key fob programming and a Micro USB port for firmware updates make this controller easy to use.

Using the same enclosure is an Android based Smart Controller4 that wirelessly connects to SmartCircle. This controller eliminates the need for key fobs as an Android smart device is now the secure user interface controlling the arm and disarm functions. False alarms will be greatly reduced as they will require both hardware and software sensors to trigger in order for an alarm to sound. All alarms and triggers, including individual ones, will be notified on the SmartCircle Manager device for review and correction.


The Recoiler aircraft cable possesses active cutting detection. If pressure is applied to the Recoiler cable a PreTheft alarm is triggered. Pressure sensors are built into the Vise4 X sensor pad offering enhanced security. An LED light deters theft and when the sensor pad is removed an alarm sounds at the Controller.

Additionally, the headphone sensor is a mechanical and electronic solution for all Vise products. Mechanically the headphone sensor works as another layer of physical security, preventing movement of the Vise arms. Electronically this sensor works with SmartCircle and Vise4 X as an accurate alarm trigger.

Other security features include the pressure pin located on the bottom of the pad that activates an alarm if the device is not flush with the security system. Also available is the ratchet release function on the pad and post, which ensures that the post and arms cannot be removed without the correct tools.

Charge mounts

A variety of mounting options are available in black or white, tall or short, straight or 12 degree. RTF mount options can also be mixed with other mounts or custom base plates. With the combination of the recoiler and strong rare earth magnets, wall mounting heavier devices such as tablets on a fixture is done with ease. All of this with features such as easy lockdown options provide flexibility for any mounting requirement.

Available Mount Colours


RTF has a variety of recoiler brackets designed to fit under counters or behind wall mounted displays. Brackets ensure the proper positioning of recoilers enabling perfect operation, quick connect and release as well as long life.


To enhance device security and/or provide alternate mounting options, RTF utilizes high quality custom VHB tape solutions. All tape solutions are custom made to work in conjunction with our sensors, pads, and mounts to fit without impeding alarm functionality. Our innovative custom tape for the Vise4 X comes with a pull down tab that enables you to center the solution on the surface of the device before removing the film. This ensures your post is centered on every device, every time. Tape only security solutions are also available for low-risk, low-cost scenarios.


A series of tools are required to properly maintain, secure and provide the RTF “quick release” features of the Vise product line. Tools are made from high quality materials and incorporate multiple functions within each tool to reduce complication and enhance ease of use.


LiftTouch allows the system to trigger device-specific media messaging on the device or an external monitor when the device is lifted from the mount. This system is an extension of RTF’s retail suite of products that provides superior customer interaction through “add on” components.


A new addition to the Vise4 X system is the Display4, an above the counter display that eliminates problems retailers experience with below the counter systems. When recoilers are mounted below the counter there is a higher level of difficulty to maintain the equipment. Display4 moves the recoiler above the counter and houses it an attractive, well designed and secure aluminium enclosure.

The natural aluminum enclosure includes a top plate finished in either black or white to match the charge mount or retail display surface. The standard form is a capsule shape angled at 12° with different lengths still in consideration.

Using a security key on the base, the Display4 can be lifted to replace the recoiler easily and quickly.

SmartCircle Metrics

Metrics organically collects store-level customer information using the technology in Smartphone and Tablet devices. Innate device behaviour is gathered from Display devices through SmartCircle’s secured wireless network.

Metrics Dashboard is able to distinguish between customer lifts, touches and interactions. This information provides valuable, accurate insight into key areas of the business: marketing, operations and loss prevention.

Lock Cable

Also available is the RTF’s lock cable feature, which ensures security while matching the appearance of the display. This flexible, locking loop quickly wraps around handles, through button holes, or any secure opening, to provide an added security to other items. Using a secure tool the lock cable clasps onto the aircraft cable making a safety loop that cannot be tampered with.
