Why Do People Steal Catalytic Converters?
Catalytic converters contain a precious metal known as rhodium, which now goes for almost $13,500 CDN per ounce.
Not only is the cost of rhodium incentive enough for criminals to steal catalytic converters, but the process of removing them from a vehicle is fairly simple.
So simple, in fact, that the theft can occur in a matter of minutes.
If your catalytic converter is stolen, you may be covered for its replacement under a comprehensive auto insurance policy – but you may be responsible for paying a deductible and any depreciation.
This is why it’s important to consider catalytic converter theft prevention to protect your vehicle.
Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention
If you are worried about losing your catalytic converter to thieving hands, here are some useful tips:
Find Out if Your Car is Targeted
Thieves will target particular vehicle models when it comes to stealing catalytic converters. A simple call to your local muffler shop will give you an idea of which cars are at a higher risk in your area.
Paint Your Catalytic Converter
While painting your catalytic converter doesn’t prevent theft, it makes it easier for authorities to trace it.
Using a high-temperature fluorescent paint, paint your catalytic converter and inscribe your vehicle’s VIN number on the painted surface.
Install an Anti-Theft Device
A cable locking device can be installed on your catalytic converter to make it more difficult to steal.
One of the most popular devices is a steel shield that fits over the catalytic converter that requires more time and extra tools to remove.
Park Muffler offers this type of protection!
