Catalytic Converter thefts are on the rise. Here are some quick tips to help you better keep your car safe from theft and you safe from being the next victim:

1. Get your converter etched or engraved with your information. Thieves like to steal converters and sell them to scrap yards. If your converter had your information on it, and not the thieves', it could keep them from even taking it because it makes it harder to sell. 

2. Park your vehicle strategically, in a well-lit area and utilize a secure garage when possible.

3. Make use of a car alarm system if possible.

4. There are also a number of catalytic converter theft prevention kits on the market that create a cage around your converter, making it harder for thieves to steal them.
