Catalytic Converter Anti-Theft Alarm

Thieves are targeting catalysts located in the exhaust system under the vehicle because of the high value of the precious metals they contain.

Thieves simply cut the catalytic converter from the exhaust pipe of a parked car and sell them on to scrap metal dealers.

Taller vehicles (4x4s) are particularly vulnerable as the converters are more accessible. Because they tend to have larger engines, they contain more of the precious metals too.
Information obtained from 40 UK police forces revealed thefts UK had more than doubled between 2010 and 2012.

Some parts of the country saw a significant rise – in Bedfordshire and South Yorkshire thefts increased more than tenfold.

They more than tripled across Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Leicestershire during the same period.

A Department of Transport spokesman said it was not illegal to drive without a catalytic converter but you could be stopped by the police and prosecuted for breaking the law on harmful emissions. Most vehicles will also fail a MOT test without a catalytic converter.

The Anti-Theft Catalytic Alarm “CatGuard”, is fitted to a vehicle in less than an hour and if thieves attempt to remove the Catalytic Converter theft alarm will be activated. This will result in a 114 decibel siren giving a deafening warning to drive the thieves away.

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.
