Garrett Tactical Handheld Metal Detector with Built-in Light & Holster
Whether you own a small café or run a large school, security will always be one of the top priorities. You never want to wake up in the morning learning that your establishment was attacked by someone with a gun. You will need a Garrett tactical handheld metal detector to prevent these instances.
Metal detectors, such as the handheld ones used by security guards and the stationary ones seen in airports, can be used to detect guns, knives, bombs, and other contraband items. If your establishment prohibits people from carrying excessive cash on them, you can use a metal detector as well.
Garrett's Tactical Hand-Held Metal Detector with Holster is the perfect portable metal detector for small and large businesses alike due to its easy-to-use but efficient nature. However, it is more than a metal detector, as it has the features that can make it into an all-in-one security device.
How Efficient Is Garrett's Tactical Handheld Metal Detector with Holster?
The device’s main feature is its capability of detecting metal. It is ultra-sensitive, ensuring that even the smallest or faintest hint of metal will be picked up. If someone is hiding even a small bullet or a folded pocket knife, this detector will find it instantly even if they kept it hidden in their bag or under other items.
It is capable of detecting ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless steel objects, meaning no matter what kind of metal object a person is carrying, this Garrett THD will be able to pick it up. There will not be cases of a knife getting through security because it was wrapped in something else like a copper or aluminum foil.
Learning how to use handheld metal detector devices such as this one is quite easy. It features only two buttons: one for the flashlight and another for the detector to turn active. There are LED sensors that will light up in case the THD finds anything you might want to inspect.
To make inspecting easier and quicker, this Garrett security scanner has a complete 360-degree detection area. This ensures you will not need to point the scanner in a specific way just to make sure you do not miss a spot. It makes the whole process of scanning a person quicker and more convenient.
It features a silent vibrator alarm. This is far better than a loud sound alarm because it will not cause panic. After all, the person you are checking might just have a metal belt buckle or a metal implant in their bones and not a weapon. The vibrator will ensure you are aware it has detected something in case you did not notice the light turn on.
You need to teach your personnel handling these metal detectors what to look for. When the silent alarm lights up, they should be aware of what kind of objects might be hidden in that area they are checking. This will help hasten the process and ensure that anyone not carrying a weapon will not be too bothered.
Can airport security scanners detect money? To a degree, they can. Some metal detectors can detect the magnetic ink used on paper bills and the metal used in coins. They will not know the value of a person’s cash, just how many bills a person is holding.
This Garrett handheld metal detector can do so because it is capable of detecting the magnetic ink in paper bills. If you work in an airport or in a bank, where carrying large sums of money has to undergo inspection, then this is the perfect detector for your security needs.
If you are using the detector to inspect IDs for schools, clubs, bars, and other facilities then you will need extra light. You will also need some light if you are working at night or under low-light circumstances. Luckily, this Garrett THD comes with a built-in LED flashlight that turns on with a press of a button.
The LED light is perfect for looking for items so small that you might not see them with the naked eye. If a person is carrying small packets of bullets or just foreign coins, you will want to be able to make sure, even if it is dark, and this tactical metal detector’s light guarantees that you can.
What Else Do You Get with the Garrett Tactical Hand-Held Metal Detector?
This Garrett tactical metal detector is built to be water-resistant, so you can use it outdoors even on a rainy day. The batteries are easy to replace, and the device is only 4 inches in length, exclusive of its handle.
Buying the metal detector gives you a free 9V battery, but you can also avail yourself of an optional Cadmium-free rechargeable battery pack made specifically for the Garrett Tactical Hand-Held Metal Detector with Holster. This will be more practical for business owners requiring 24/7 security.
Lastly, there is an included holster. This is important because it allows your security personnel to carry their metal detectors easily with them even when roaming the facilities for patrol. It ensures that any security personnel can do a random inspection when necessary, which is important for schools and banks.
The holster also ensures that a security officer will be able to reach for their metal detector instantly. There are instances wherein a suspect might need to be checked as quickly as possible, and the holster will guarantee that there will be no moments wasted just trying to search or reach for the metal detector.
All in all, you get a small, portable, handheld metal detector with a 360-degree range, a silent vibration alarm, an LED flashlight, and super-sensitive detection. It comes with a free battery, a holster, and the option to get a Cadmium-free rechargeable battery kit.
