The Crook-Catcher™ Deluxe Thief Detection Kit has everything you’ll need to catch a thief.
There are two primary methods for thief detection and identification of stolen items. One marks the thief with invisible markings which can later be revealed under ultraviolet (UV) light, and the other marks the thief with an immediately-visible stain.
Ultraviolet powder allows an item to be marked so that it is not visible, yet anyone who touched it can be identified. Its fluorescent tracer readily transfers to the fingers and hands when touched, leaving the subject "glowing” when viewed with the included UV flashlight. (Best viewed in darkness or low lighting.)
In some situations, an immediate visible indication may be preferable over the ultraviolet method. The kit’s visible stain powder will instantly mark the thief. After a marked item comes in contact with skin, it immediately causes a highly visible, aggressive purple stain that can last up to several days.
On vertical surfaces and for outdoor uses, a paste is desirable over a powder. To make an ultraviolet or visible stain paste, simply mix the powder into petroleum jelly (included).
Ultraviolet ink is ideal for marking items for later identification in case stolen. This kit includes 3 markers which can write on nearly any dry surface, including metal, glass, paint, and currency. The markings remain invisible until viewed under UV light. Each marker fluoresces a different color (blue, red, green). The ink is waterproof and heat-proof.
All powders, pastes, and inks are non-toxic.
