Attach security tags = fuse ?

Hey folks, I'm new to this forum!

I'm writing an application for an internship in America. As I was describing my current job tasks on my résumé (working in a clothing store), I wondered how to phrase "attach security tags" in a more professional way. In German there is one word < ---- >. So this is what I have and I don't know if "fuse" is the proper word:

Unpack and fuse newly arrived commodity.

< Each question needs its own thread. Cagey, moderator. >

Thanks in advance!

    It's so general that I have no idea what you do. My guess would be that you melt (using heat) something (the commodity) into a solid mass (like fusing sand into glass). ;)

    If it is done at the source (at the manufacturer's facility) then "embedded", otherwise "attached" or "applied" would be my choices.

    So I unpack the jeans and then I fuse/secure (?) them attach these security tags.

    If you feel you must explain why a security tag is attached, you could add "... to stop them being stolen."

    Thanks for your help, guys! So it'd be "Unpack and attach security tags to newly arrived commodity."?

    What about my second question about the refilling?

    To be more precise, you attach or fix security tags to garments. Or, if it is more than garments, such as bottles of drink, to 'goods' or merchandise.
    (The verb 'to be' takes an adjectival form).
