Did you know a thief can steal a catalytic converter in a matter of minutes? Most vehicles have catalytic converters, which can be stolen for the value of the precious metals or illegally re-sold. We’ve seen a recent spate in catalytic converter thefts across the county. Thieves tend to target hybrid cars – including models such as the Toyota Prius, Honda Jazz and Lexus – as the value of their converter is higher and they can be accessed more easily with a jack.
The simplest way to prevent catalytic converter theft is to put your vehicle in a garage or secured area if you have one. Alarms, lighting and CCTV can also help to deter thieves. Other ways to protect your vehicle include:
Park close to fences, walls or a kerb with the exhaust being closest to the fence, wall or kerb to make the theft more difficult.
Avoid parking your vehicle half on the pavement and half on the road, as this may make it easier for thieves to access the catalytic converter.
Buying and fitting a protection device specifically to cover the catalytic converter
Installing motion-activated lighting if you park your vehicle on a driveway, but if this isn’t possible, park it in a well-lit, busy area
Using your vehicle’s alarm or installing a Thatcham approved alarm, which should activate if the vehicle is tilted or lifted
Ensuring your dashcam is set to detect movement
Looking out for anyone ‘working’ or acting suspiciously under vehicles (particularly in busy car parks)
In addition, if you are going to be visiting somewhere for a long period of time (e.g. a supermarket), we would advise you to park so it is difficult for thieves to lift your vehicle.
Marking kits can also be purchased. Marking can assist police investigations as converters can be tracked back to the vehicle they came from if located.
