For a nominal fee of $25, STOP tags offer a visible deterrent on any portable electronic device with a permanent adhesive sticker that requires 800lbs of pressure to remove. The sticker includes a bar code with the owner’s tracking data. Underneath the sticker is a permanently etched mark that says “Stolen property” asuuming a thief is able to remove the top bar code sticker. This combination makes it very difficult for a thief to resell your device and the sticker alone may be enough to deter someone form taking it in the first place.
This is probably one of the most cost effective methods of theft deterrents. I’ll have more options in the coming days.
