Why do cash registers ring? 

A cash register rings to announce someone has opened the cash drawer and has access to the cash and, as a result, to draw attention to the opening of the cash drawer. This bell was enacted in order to discourage employee theft. One of the first cash registers with a bell was called a “thief catcher.”
