Catalytic converter protection

Recommended Posts

With all the news about theft of Prius cats, has anyone experience of using a protector such as catloc or catclamp?

My first thought would be how would you fit one after driving somewhere - how long does it take for a cat to cool down sufficiently.

Just rhetorical questions....

If you park with one side along the kerb, would anyone be daft enough to try pinching a cat using the busy offside?

Is there enough room to manoeuvrer under the car, if parked between other cars?

Having had my catalytic converter stolen in March, when the new cat was installed by Jemca Purley, I paid for a Catloc to be installed as well.  Initially I was worried about using the car park where the cat was stolen but decided that I can't let this impact on my life, so I'm still parking there twice a week.  I do have stickers on the car windows stating that a Catloc is installed, so if the scumbags can read hopefully they will go away.  The CCTV at the car park showed that the thieves took about four minutes to remove the cat - with the Catloc installed it would take considerably longer IF they can cut through the chain.
