Tattle Tape is the only covert security system for theft detection in the libraries. The tape consists of a magnetic metal strip embedded in a strip of thick, clear adhesive tape. It is usually used with a tattle tape staff work station and a tattle tape security gate. When the magnetic strip in the tattle tape is sensitized an alarm will sound at the tattle tape detection system. However when the item is processed through a tattle tape staff work station the tattle tape is desensitized and will not generate an alarm in the tattle tape detection system. However when the item is returned back the user it needs to be re-sensitized again using a tattle tape staff work station.
