Or, even easier, since they normally just stick them in the books at
B&N, pull it out and stick it in a different book. Kind of hard to
detect that which is not there.

In a retail environment where there are employees and cameras about, I
think that an electric butane BBQ starter would draw a bit of attention.
The security strips that I've seen at music and book stores are embedded
in a tamper resistant white plastic casing that is securely adhered to
the product. Removing these would probably be difficult and also draw
An idea would be do use a small flexible strip magnet with some
pre-applied adhesive on one side and (inconspicuously) tack it on to the
security strip. This would probably detune the strip enough to avoid

Oops! I didn't mean to start a "how to steal an electronically

starter (notice the smiley face?).
PS. on the other hand, I did learn some pretty neat tricks ;-)
