Catalytic Converter Anti-Theft Alarm

Another Major Order For aide automotive - 40 Cat Alarms Fitted To Hilux

Catalytic converter theft is on the rise so protect your expensive system

Thieves have battery operated saws, two cuts and the catalytic converter is taken in a minute or two.

The reason the catalytic converters are being stolen is they contain valuable platinum, rhodium and palladium.

The metals are expensive, and thieves sell the converters to scrap yards for £150 to £200 per piece, depending on the size of the converter and the current rate on the metals inside it.

It costs you up to £2,000 to replace a catalytic converter, and it is illegal to drive your car without one. The resulting gap in your exhaust system also makes the car run poorly until it is fixed.

CatGuard the Catalytic Converter Theft Alarm has additional outputs to trigger other security devices. For example these outputs may be used to protect the spare wheel or to trigger an alarm if the bonnet catch is released

A major utilities provider purchased 40 Toyota Hilux vehicles with the requirement to fit a catalytic alarm to each.

Strongs Ltd contacted aide automotive with the need to supply and fit within the vehicles production.
