The Gen 2 Cat Shield ™ offers the most protection out of any product in the market. The bottom lip deters thieves from cutting the rear pipe. Louver vents provide efficient cooling, visibility for smog techs to read the converter part number, and protects the vehicle from debris. Fully removable, galvanic corrosion resistant, and no large openings for thieves to cut through. We highly recommend pairing this shield with our Deadbolt.

My catalytic converter has not been stolen for 2 whole weeks.
The auto repair shop, that was replacing my catalytic converter, recommended buying a shield to protect it. (It's my insurance company's #1 claim.) It gave me confidence to bring my car back home without the worry of being easily re-targeted.
It arrived quickly enough to have the shop install it while it was still there.
If it was a younger car with less miles, I would have purchased the steel option.
Very flexible given problems with UPS delivery. Ready to install!
Purchased the shield, and the Deadbolt to protect the Flange bolts from being removed. There were no instructions included with the shield. The deadbolt had (sparse) instructions, but did not fit properly as made. The threaded hole for the security screw was positioned such that it ran into the flange bolt rather than passing over top. I had to remove, drill and tap a new hole to have it work properly. There was no security driver bit in the Deadbolt, so I only have the one that came with the shield itself. Spend the time generating good quality installation diagrams and photos, and assure all materials and instructions are included in the packaged products you sell.
easy for our mechanics shop to install. same fuel efficiency afterwards
