Following an increase of thefts of catalytic converters, Thames Valley Police is urging owners of vehicles to take additional security measures

In many cases, offenders use car jacks to lift the vehicle and are able to remove the catalytic converter in a matter of minutes. The following advice is provided for all vehicle owners.

Defensive ParkingWhere possible park in your garage. If not try to park next to a high curb or other area that restricts access underneath your vehicle on the side where the exhaust is fitted. If possible park in a well-lit area or consider security lighting. When parking in a car park avoid parking at the end of a row if possible to make access more difficult for offenders.

CCTV Consider installing a CCTV system to cover your vehicle as a deterrent.

Welded BoltsIf your catalytic converter is a “bolt on” it is possible to have the bolts welded shut.

Catalytic Converter Protective Sleeves/clampsConsider fitting a specialist protective cover or clamp to your vehicle to make life more difficult for an offender. Contact your vehicle dealership for options.

Alarm SystemConsider fitting a specific catalytic converter alarm to warn of any tamper attempts. Some alarms can send a text message to your phone and activate a siren and flashing lights. If possible choose a Thatcham approved product www.thatcham.org some alarms can also provide lift and tilt detection which offer effective protection.

Identify/etch your converter Consider permanently marking your catalytic
