Vise3 assisted retailers worldwide from 2007 to 2012 and securely placed expensive, fully functional consumer electronics in the hands of shoppers, providing a positive experience resulting in increased sales.

This was accomplished through visually pleasing components that unobtrusively secure displayed merchandise in retail and exhibit settings. The displays allowed customers to interact with charged, fully-functional electronics and enabled the relay of product features and benefits via interactive digital media screens, enhancing the buying experience.

Universal Locking Claw
Charge Ends

Vise3 quickly secures a wide range of consumer electronics by locking the product between a set of adjustable claws. The Vise3 connects to a recoiler allowing the customer unencumbered use and freedom to experience the displayed merchandise.

All functions of the displayed product remain available giving a positive customer experience, leading to increased sales. With multiple arm sizes, RTF is able to secure nearly every retail device from consumer electronics to power tools. Arms can be mounted on two post lengths and come in both mechanical and mechanical/ electronic hybrid configurations.

Electronic Recoiler
Charge Ends

RTF’s powered, aircraft cable tethers incorporate an industry first technology – Pre theft. When attempting to cut the cable the alarm sounds before the cable is severed and in most cases the recoiler continues to operate normally.

Recoilers provide the ability to not only secure your devices, but in some instances, alarm and charge at the same time all being powered directly through the recoiler cable. With USB/RJ11 connectors, the electronic recoiler enables device charging along with a mechanical security solution.

Together with our liftTouch system, through an “add on” component, you can utilize the system to trigger device specific media messaging on the device or an exterior LCD monitor.

Mechanical Recoiler
Charge Ends

RTF’s mechanical recoilers are made of aircraft cable and among the strongest in the industry. With a plastic coated steel cable and high quality tensioning spring, the recoiler is durable and virtually inseverable.

The cable connects to a lockable connector ensuring security and a solid connection. With a variety of connector options and pads the ability to customize for a wide range of products our line quickly adapts to secure electronics, tools, camera’s, sunglasses, bluetooth devices as well as dozens of other products in a retail environment.

Alarm and charging system
Charge Ends

RTF’s Smart Alarming Controller technology allows the system to automatically adjust to outside interference as needed in a retail environment.

This firmware enables the retailer to secure, alarm and charge their devices while the system helps prevent alarm sensitivity or false alarms through a series of filtering algorithms.

System operation is seamless and through a one button RF keyfob the 2, 5, or 10 port alarm hub is always armed.

Charge Ends

Pressure Sensors are built into both the Vise3 as well as our standard device mounting offerings, offering enhanced security.

A red LED deters theft and when the sensor is removed an alarm emits from the Controller.

Charge Ends can be quickly connected and disconnected to the bottom of the sensor for device charging.

Charge Ends

RTF has designed and developed a large variety of display options for both wall mounting and fixture placement.

With corrective placement mounts devices will always return to the proper display position for the next customer experience.

These mounts are available in several color and finish options to blend with any retail environment. Custom mount options are also available to fit specific branding criteria.

Charge Ends

RTF has a variety of recoiler brackets designed to mount out of sight and to fit on the interior of fixtures, underneath counters or on wall mounted displays.

Brackets ensure the proper positioning of recoilers enabling perfect operation, quick connect, release and long life.

Counter/Wall Mounts
Charge Ends

With options to mount devices on the counter or wall, RTF has developed solutions to display merchandise and draw attention to the product not the security system.

RTF also has the ability to custom fit retail fixtures enabling consistency within the retail environment.

Charge Ends

RTF’s system allows device charging so customer interaction assists in the selling process. Charge Ends are produced that fit all devices to include Micro USB, Samsung, Apple as well as handheld game systems.

Working in conjunction with the RTF sensors, Charge Ends cables are encased within the sensor for low visibility cable management. With two Charge Ends wings and a low profile, 90 degree cable, customers will no longer notice or unplug the charging cable.

Charge Ends

To enhance device security RTF utilizes the highest quality 3M VHB tape products custom made for our system. Our tape products work in conjunction with our sensors, pads as well as mounts and are designed to fit without impeding the alarm system.

The tape is provided with each applicable unit and replacements packs are also available.

Charge Ends

Vise3 can be connected with our leading interactive digital media signage system – liftTouch.
