The AMD-3040 Hand-Held Detacher is a manual unit designed to remove SuperTag® hard tags from merchandise. Its ambidextrous design accommodates both right-handed and left-handed users. Tough molded plastic makes the unit both durable and lightweight, while a lanyard helps prevent unauthorized removal from the store. The detacher also provides a channel in the base of the handle that can be used to straighten bent tacks on hard tags. Batteries or electrical power source not required. A stuck tag remover is incorporated into the lanyard.
