Catalytic Converter Shield Installation in Stockton
In response to the nationwide epidemic of catalytic converter theft, our Stockton auto repair shop offers catalytic converter shield installation. Catalytic converter thefts run rampant due to high prices of precious metals that are used in the converters: platinum, palladium and rhodium. Toole’s Garage Stockton can install a protective catalytic converter shield to discourage thieves from attempting to steal your catalytic converter.
Professional thief may need as little as 2 minutes to steal a catalytic converter. The shield we install makes it much more difficult, time consuming, and noisy – so the thief is likely to go down the street looking for an easier target. While Toyota Prius Gen 2 and Honda Element are the most frequently targeted cars, no vehicle is immune. Pickup trucks, vans, even school buses have been targets of catalytic converter thieves.
Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, we may be able to install a catalytic converter shield that is made specifically for your vehicle model, or may have to install a “universal” shield. In either case, it can be done fairly quickly, so you could drop off the car in the morning, and you would be able to pick it up in the afternoon with the catalytic converter shield already installed.
Catalytic converter thefts show no signs of slowing down, as the precious metal prices continue to make this crime highly profitable. Fortunately, catalytic converter shields (aka “cat shields”) are available, and continue to evolve to provide even better protection. At Toole’s Garage Stockton we keep on top of the latest trends in catalytic converter shields, so you can rest assured that the shield we install on your vehicle will offer latest in catalytic converter protection. Until such a time as you can get catalytic converter shield installed, we recommend parking your vehicle in the garage, particularly at night.
