Don’t be the next victim of catalytic converter theft.

We are authorized installers of “Cat Security”. It is a plate that covers the bottom area where the target converter is located.  It is made of sturdy yet lightweight aluminum and attaches to existing mounting points on your Prius. Once installed it provides a strong barrier against catalytic converter theft.

We currently have kits that will protect the 2004-2009 model cars as well as kits for the 2010 - 2015 vehicles. At this time, we have only seen converters taken from the 2004-2009 generation vehicles, but we have increasingly heard of the newer vehicles being targeted for theft. These kits will not fit the Prius C, the baby Prius.

Even if you park your car in your garage at night, there will be a day when you need to park it on the street or a large unprotected parking lot. It only takes a few minutes for the converter to be taken. It will cost you and/or your insurance company almost $3,000.00 and a few days, up to a week of your time to remedy the situation. So don’t get caught without some sort of protective measures.

The cost to install this system is $350.00 for the 2004 – 2009 models and $375.00 for the 2010 – 2015 models. Installation does not take very long but we do request about  4 hours and that you schedule an appointment.
