Catloc? are they worth it?

A Catloc, or similar plate, is just a deterrent, not a promise. A wire cage will be a bigger deterrent, more challenging.  Of course, out of frustration, a thief could easy cause more damage to a door panel.

First no catloc, replaced by insurance at repair centre, we got catloc fitted for £250at Toyota. After 9 months stolen with catloc, then got insurance to fit catalytic converter and then they took to Toyota dealer and fitted catloc

i suggested security bolts some time back, shear bolts/nuts may be an option or even triple square or security torx (centre pin)

even drilling the bold heads a lock wiring them would be an option

Edit. Just had a really simple idea, just put a big gob of weld on the head of the bolt(s) (on the side face)

 

So I tried this;

Works very well. they really have to crawl under there now and use some propper wirecutters before they can unbolt it.

Atleast it will delay them a bit. hopefully it will put them off.

Where do you get this from?

Edit to my earlier post:

I have checked an old email from a Toyota dealer; the Toyota security bolt covers for the exhaust manifold bolts are not called TGBNGA - BOLT B, they're called 

TGBNGA - BOLT C

My mistake!

Gerg,

How many of those "TGBNGA BOLT C" units do I need to ask the dealership to order - to fit?

Is it just two bolts - or are there more bolts that would need them?

 

Putting an order in - might as well get it right first time.
