  1. I chose not to go for proximity for that reason. Even the shock sensor can be triggered by motorbikes driving past, but luckily the sensitivity can be turned down which I had to do. But give the tyres a kick or the cat a knock and the alarm will go off.
  2. I had my cat stolen last September and have since had the factory alarm upgraded to have a shock sensor fitted inside the car (in middle compartment between front seats) for less than £200 so that the alarm goes off if anyone starts meddling. Would thoroughly recommend Neil at Creative Car Sounds in North London who did this for me. Gives me some peace of mind that they're less likely to stick around when the alarm goes off.
  3. https://www.rhino-accessories.com/universal-catloc this one is £125 inc. VAT, which seems cheap compared to your estimate. this youtube video from the manufacturer indicates that the materials used are strong enough:
  4. I checked your link and it says "‘Catloc’ device can deter theft and make it more difficult". Sufficiently vague! I imagine the thieves don't want to spend longer than a couple of minutes on each car and I would hope a well fitted catloc would deter them enough..plenty of unsecured catalytic converters our there which they can remove in under 2 mins.
  5. Hi, you say a catloc may only slow down determined thieves by a couple of minutes ... I just checked google and I cannot find anything about catlocs being ineffective. Please could you direct me to any sources you've seen to support your comment? Thanks
  6. I'll be fitting mine with a Clifford car alarm on max sensitivity aswell then. Does anyone know which catlock would be best?

  8. does anyone know the rough dimensions of a genuine Lexus replacement cat? I'm looking for the right size catloc to fit over it the new one...I've decided to make a claim on my insurance and I've asked the garage who are fixing it to also fit the catloc to stop them coming back a 2nd time! thinking of going for a catloc 1001 or catloc 1002. any advice appreciated.
  9. thanks for posting. I had my cat stolen yesterday when it was parked in N London (N15). I just rang Toyota about the catloc which costs between £200-£250 - they couldn't say if it would fit on a Lexus. Apparently Lexus are looking into manufacturing their own version of the catloc. https://blog.toyota.co.uk/catalytic-converter-theft-how-to-protect-your-car They say the waiting list for a new cat is about a month, apparently loads of cats have been stolen in the last couple of weeks.
