â€śWhilst no retention system is 100% effective,
this particular one was installed into our highest
loss store pre-Christmas, and losses have been
reduced by fantastic 94.0%, saving ÂŁ100k for this
one site per annum alone.â€ť

Carttronics CAPSÂ® is a highly effective cart and trolley loss prevention solution with the lowest lifetime cost of ownership. CAPS is operating on thousands of store sites in dozens of countries around the world, including independents, regional chains and sites owned and operated by 15 of the top 20 global retail chains.
The CAPS system consists of a small gauge antenna wire located in a narrow saw-cut around the site perimeter, a small electronic signal transmitter located in a secure location in the store, and one Carttronicsâ€™ locking CAPS caster on each cart. When someone tries to leave the store property the CAPS caster automatically releases a durable yellow braking shell that rotates down to separate the wheel from the ground and stop the cart. The braking shell is readily reset by store personnel using Carttronicsâ€™ hand held reset controller, placing the cart back in service.
