A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11913257B2) discloses a product security device designed to fasten securely to a product. The device comprises a first jaw and a second jaw that can slide between open and closed positions, with a locking mechanism preventing the first jaw from moving away from the second jaw when in a locked state. A signal emitting component, a product engagement pin, and a release spring are also included in the device. Additionally, a shroud with a shroud orifice surrounds the product engagement pin, allowing it to engage the product as the jaws transition from open to closed positions. A shroud spring is configured to urge the shroud towards the second jaw, ensuring stability during product engagement.

Furthermore, the product security device features a unique shroud design that includes a shroud spring to extend the shroud into an extended position when the jaws are open. This extension allows the shroud to surpass the tip of the product engagement pin, enhancing security measures. The shroud is also equipped to eject the product off the pin when the jaws transition from a closed to an open position, providing a convenient and efficient way to remove the device from the product. The patent also details the inclusion of a signal emitting component, such as RFID or Bluetooth technology, and a breakable ink capsule for additional security measures. Overall, the product security device offers a comprehensive solution for securing products effectively while incorporating innovative features for ease of use and enhanced security.
