How to Prevent Catalytic Converter Theft
| Release time：2022年03月16日
Catalytic converters are often the target of thieves because the part contains valuable precious metals. Catalytic converter thefts often happen on vehicles with more ground clearance, since it’s easier to access the part.
Regardless of the type of vehicle you have, there are some steps you can take to help prevent theft:
Park in well-lighted areas close to building entrances if a secure garage is unavailable.
Weld the catalytic converter to the vehicle frame, which can make it harder to remove.
Consider buying an aftermarket part similar to a metal cage that can be installed to cover the converter.
Install a car alarm with a vibration alert sensor.
Engrave your vehicle identification number (VIN) to the converter, which can help make selling the part harder and help alert you if your converter is stolen.
