Catalytic Converter Theft Devices - 

Invest in a Armacat,or Catloc a new way to protect your catalytic converter from theft. These devices fit to vehicles and could prevent it from being attacked, click on the amazon picture link below to read more about these products.

This is a quick guide to Catalytic Converter theft, the full guide can be found by reading catalytic converter theft prevention.

Catalytic converters are stolen due to the range of valuable metals used in their manufacture.

Catalytic converters contain a range of precious metals including platinum, palladium, rhodium and gold.  You may not be familiar with some of these metals, however  they have all increased in value and criminals know they can sell catalytic converters easily as a result.

Platinum has more than doubled in value between Sep 2008 and March 2012. Palladium has increased by more than 200% during the same period. Rhodium has increased from $1250 to $1400 an ounce between January and March 2012.

Catalytic converters are also relatively easy to steal, very few vehicle owners are aware of this crime prevention problem and so don’t take crime prevention precautions.

Due to the catalytic converter being more exposed and therefore easier for a criminal to access, vans and vehicles higher from the ground are most at risk.

The cost of replacing the catalytic converter on these vehicles can be between £500 and £1000, this is in addition to the time the vehicle will be off the road and the problems this can cause.
