    My mom bought me a jacket from polo. By ALL MEANS IT WAS NOT STOLEN. They simply forgot to take that one sensor thing off that is the shape of a rectangle. I need a jacket tomorrow badly for it's gonna be freezing in the morning. My other jacket is covered in blood(Dont ask.) and I can't wash it when my mom's around or she will flip her shit. If you try to take this sensor off by yourself, is there ink inside it that would spill out onto the jacket?

    Seriously there are a ton of different designs of those sensors... take a pic. I've been in the retail environment for many years & can probably tell you how if I can see it...;)

    a lot of them jsut use a magnent to pull the locking mechanism out of the way.....so i'd try to find the strongest magnent you can and go from there. after that, it may be time for tools. if you have a steady hand, maybe dremel the steel pin going through the shirt?

    the sensor pictured doesnt have the ink in it you can tug the hell outta the button end and it might come up a lil to where ya can get a pair of diagonal cutters in between the two pieces and cut it. its not easy trust me. we had to cut thru one at work once. but it worked

    That is a standard "Sensormatic" tag.
    With a nice pair of wire snips you should be able to cut it right off...
    The tool to remove these tags looks like a staple gun. It has 2 magnets that release the pin...

    I've cut a couple of those off before. Just cut the plastic down around the steel pin enough to get some wire cutters in there and cut the pin. I think they have ink in them, not sure. So far I havn't caused any ink to come out.

    Pliers, some people have used coins actually too. Magnets work the best though. if you've got a strong on it'll help. We use magnets at my work to remove em.

    If you are under the impression that tits are cold, maybe a jacket to wear shouldn't be your biggest priority right now.
