Detecting Bottom Of The Basket Shrink At The Supermarket?

One form of retail theft is to put items on the bottom of the shopping cart and then simply roll them out, without any store employees noticing.

As one crazy guy explains how he steals from the grocery store,

"I throw large products like kitty litter, Gatorade, and toilet paper on to the bottom rack of the shopping cart. Upon checking out, no one ever looks at the bottom rack. They think you'll be honest and alert the checker to what's there. Honesty's for suckers. I just pretend that whatever's beneath eye level doesn't exist and I walk out of the store saving forty or fifty bucks. I rarely get caught doing this, but when I do, I claim ignorance. It's an obvious oversight because I, much like most checkers, don't look that low. Anyway, they got some fucking nerve charging twelve bucks for a 16-pack of toilet paper. It goes in your ass. It shouldn't cost that much."

A member is asking what solutions exist for this.

The only solution I have found is a camera embedded at the bottom of the checkout stand (see image above). One supplier - LaneHawk, another Hawkeye (whitepaper).

Anyone have any recommendations here?
