Keep Your Catalytic Converter Safe

Posted: Tue, 20 Apr 2021 17:33 by Laura Storey

Do you know what your catalytic converter is, and how to protect it?

A catalytic converter is a device on vehicle exhausts that reduces the toxic gases and pollutants. Precious metals must be used because the converters have to work efficiently enough to meet emissions standards, and they are being stolen because of the value of these precious metals.

In recent months, we have seen an increase in thefts in the Buxton, Chesterfield, Bolsover, Swadlincote, Erewash, and Derby East and West areas. More »

As more people look to use car parks for days out and as they head back to work, we are encouraging motorists to follow these safety tips to protect your catalytic converters, which could help reduce the chance of becoming a victim:

🚗 If possible, park in a garage or in a position where it would be difficult to access the underside of the vehicle near the exhaust
🚗 Consider marking the catalytic converter with a serial number to identify it, and register it on sites such as Immobilise
🚗 Consider installing protective coverings over the converter, but seek advice from a professional as different makes offer different types which are safe. This may not prevent it from being stolen, but would make it more difficult and slow down the process
🚗 Install alarms and CCTV
🚗 Good quality lighting near to your vehicle will improve natural surveillance and can act as a deterrent.

If you see anyone acting suspicious/appearing to be working on a car in a public car park, please report it to us.

The cars that are most often targeted are hybrid vehicles, as the catalytic converter is used less frequently. The metals they use are less likely to corrode, meaning they are worth more.
