Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention using RETAINAGROUP's CATGUARD/CATEtch ID System
It is a well-proven security system that deters and detects the theft of a catalytic converter by giving it a unique identity that can be verified at any time of day or night.
These devices contain high-value metals needed to complete their function in reducing pollution which attracts the interest of thieves because they are easy to remove and cannot be traced.
Two ultra-destruct labels, laser cut with a unique code and the URL of a secure, accredited database - the International Security Register (ISR) – are applied to a catalytic converter and will break into pieces If an attempt is made to remove them. In addition, a fluid that etches into metal is applied to the labels so that even if they are removed, the code and URL will remain clearly readable.
A thief stealing a marked and registered catalytic converter runs a real risk of being caught if an officer of the law or a potential purchaser checks the status, by accessing the database and entering the unique code.
Step 1: Make sure the catalytic is clean, dry, and cool enough to work around.
Step 2: Peel and stick your new labels onto your catalytic and then rub the provided compound onto the label.
Step 3: Register your label using the QR code on the side.
Scanning the QR code on one of the labels and following the website pop-up will return a message confirming whether or not the CAT has been registered as stolen. The service is free and there is a second level of support for Law Enforcement investigations. If both the labels on the CAT have been removed, entering the unique code will also provide status confirmation.
