How To Prevent Catalytic Converter Theft In The UK

How To Prevent Catalytic Converter Theft In The UK



The CatStrap™ is encased in a high-temperature strap that runs down the length of your vehicle's exhaust and converter. Features a heat-activated adhesive strip (black side) that creates a tight bond to the exhaust system to prevent removal. In addition, exhaust clamps are used to ensure a tight bond and provide additional attachment strength. In most cases the mere sight of the Catstrap, with its Bright Orange surface and the yellow warning label results in the best possible result, they "Just Go Away". Otherwise, when a thief armed with a battery-operated saw attempts to remove your catalytic converter, the Catstrap converts what is normally a 45-60 second theft into an extremely difficult-to-cut operation requiring multiple blades. When installed according to instructions, the thief must successfully cut through the strap not once, but twice, with 4 layers of dissimilar metals. Better bring multiple blades, because one won't last! Now in a Neon Orange Color Screams "GO AWAY" The thief is equipped with a steel cutting blade designed to cut thin wall metal like exhaust pipe tubing. This type of blade is constructed with very small teeth, designed to cut thin pieces of metal and effectively dispose of them. While such a blade can cut through one cable at a time, the same blade is useless when faced with cutting through three parallel aircraft-grade steel cables sliding back and forth on a layer of custom-hardened strip steel. The blade can't grip the steel cables properly because they create a moving target. Our proprietary strip steel is designed for maximum cutting resistance (55 Rockwell-C hardness: 4.5X harder than 304 Stainless Steel). The strip steel is as hard as band saw blade material, causing the blade to overheat and dull. Once dulled, the blade becomes useless, requiring multiple blades and large amounts of time. The thief leaves without your catalytic converter in hand - saving you thousands!
