The CatGuard Alarm Now Has The Extra Benefit Of An Serial Number Identification Kit to Protect Against This Costly Theft

With the massive increase in Catalytic Converter theft, aide automotive has made an addition to the CatGuard Alarm kit. As well as the CatGuard Alarm we can add a unique serial number to the Catalytic Converter by virtually indestructible sticker and metal marking fluid. A belt and braces approach to protect against theft. You can register this serial number with local police and offer insurance companies a proactive solution to this automotive problem.


aide automotive offer an on-site fitting service of the CatGuard and Catalytic Serial Number Kit. Installation can be undertaken out of hours to suit a working fleet. CatGuard can also be installed by competent internal staff.


Taller vehicles such as Cars, Trucks, Vans, 4x4s & Motorhomes are particularly vulnerable as the Catalytic converters are more accessible and, because they tend to have larger engines, they contain more of the precious metals.


It’s not unusual for a new catalytic converter to cost in the region of £1,000 and repair bills of Catalytic Converter Theft to total £3,000.


With thieves just simply cutting each end of the catalytic converter and removing it completely, CAT Converters need to be protected. CatGuard has a sophisticated sensor fitted near to the catalytic converter, and if thieves attempt to remove the catalytic converter in any way then the CatGuard alarm will be activated. CatGuard is fitted to a vehicle in less than an hour.


Catalytic Converter Theft could seriously affect a business by downtime or the cost!
