Abstract: A clothing tag (10) comprising first side and second side members (12, 14) pivotable to a closed position to capture a portion of material (11). A first connector (43) is provided on a frangible base comprising a disc (51) secured relative to the first side member (12) by a plurality of connecting portions (52) around the periphery thereof. A second connector (45) is provided on the second side member (14) such that the first connector (43) engages with the second connector (45) when the first and second side members 12 and 14 are closed. Rotation of an actuator severs the connecting portions (52) such that the first connector (43) is broken away from the first side member (12), thereby allowing the first and second side members (12, 14) to be moveable to an open position to release the material 11.
