We have been using them for about a year at Miami-Dade Public Library.
They have been the only deterrent with any semblance of success for us.
The more professional thieves have always been able to remove the 3M
security strips from our videos. We were always finding the discarded
strips in the stalls of the restrooms. We have not found any broke
QuickCases yet. They can be defeated, but it takes very sharp shears or
bolt-cutters to do it. They are very effective against thieves. They are
not, however, any use at all against staff thieves (which is a larger part
of video theft than most want to admit).
