More and more catalytic converters are being stolen from vehicles. But repair shops and dealerships have ways for securing those converters.

Catalytic converters contain platinum, rhodium and palladium. The metals are expensive and thieves sell the converters.

Here is one way to prevent those thefts.

The CatClamp® was invented to prevent thieves from stealing your catalytic converter. It’s exclusive, award-winning, patented cable cage design surrounds the catalytic converter with aircraft-grade wire rope that is very difficult to cut, even with power tools.

The same wire rope locks the converter to the chassis of the vehicle up to seven times, creating too much work for a thief in a hurry.

The CatClamp® attaches to the exhaust pipes, not the converter, allowing all size and shape converters to be protected.
