Toyota Part Number:
The Honda Element Cat Shield™ is the most advanced, comprehensive, and convenient protection device for your Honda Element. Completely made from 304 stainless steel, it is a two piece design that allows maximum protection from thieves and allows the heat from the converter to escape and not trap it inside a shield. The shield is secured with tamper-proof screws, which allows the shield to be removed for maintenance but secure from thieves.

We do NOT guarantee our product against theft. Cat Shields are a deterrence device that is meant to discourage theft and/or make it more difficult for thieves to steal your converter. Given the right tools, technique or time, a thief can still take your converter. However, by having a shield, you are significantly increasing your protection against theft. Similar to a car or home alarm, you are making thieves second guess themselves and consider moving onto another target. Deterrence works and we have countless customer accounts and video evidence that converter theft stopped (for those with repeated theft) or thieves looked and moved on to other vehicles.
Lots of this make/model still on the road in this area (Mid San Diego County CA) so big target along with Prius and others. Had my original 140K OEM cat cut off veh. July 2022; insurance (and I w/ded.) replaced with LKQ OEM sized State of CA approved unit. Researched numerous physical barrier protection options including locally done welded rebar cages, fabricated stainless local muffler shop shields and 5-6 original design fabricated units researched on web; w/replaced cat was somehat concerned w/fit due to new unit sizing but ended up being not a probem w/mine. Most of original designs on web in $300 range/parts only as this one; chose this one due to 2 piece design w/tight-high fit (ventilation/ground clearance) and local non-dealer auto mechanic shop (that installed the unit for fee) recommendation based on their previous experience with this brand. Based on my research/experience better to check installation pricing/competence ahead of time- fairly wide range of fees for installation and some mechanical/muffler shops refused to install any original design aftermaket other than their own solution or anything at all! Seamless, timely web transaction/shipping; MILLERCAT might reconsider in-box shipping packaging as FedEx apparently ignored "Fragile-Handle W/ Care" stickers but no visible damage to shield components noted upon unpacking; attachment hardware and printed installation instruction guide included in box. Mechanic shop (that had installed this brand of sheild on similar vehicles previously) noted no install problems; I got underneath to check fitment afterward; appears good. Exhaust pipe hanger included in package deal not installed as orig. OEM still in good condition.
Very well made, very good quality & easy to install.
In hindsight I wish I’d purchased a Cat Shield prior to my original catalytic converter being stolen in broad daylight three weeks ago.
I’d heard from a friend that cat thieves had stolen the cat from under his son’s Honda Element overnight, whilst parked on his driveway.
While thieves may still attempt to make an easy living off someone else’s possessions this high quality stainless steel Cat Shield will at least give those who’ll risk a 60 second heist attempt to reconsider.
The Cat Shield was straightforward in instructions and installation. It’s well designed, very well constructed and everything lines up exactly as promised. The stainless steel should at least blunt multiple sawzall blades before giving up the protection of one’s existing catalytic converter.
I believe this is a very worthwhile investment given that my Element is often parked at the airport for several days.
Bought this product after my OE converter was cut off of my 04 Element for the second time. After installing the shield, I can say that I was very impressed with the quality of the construction, the hardware included and the instructions. I work at Honda Dealership and we see numerous converters cut off of our customers' cars. We recommend this product when applicable and now we have a personal testimony to go with our recommendation! Definitely a great additional level of security.
My first cat was stolen from my Honda Element in 2013 and I thought it was just a fluke. $1500 later it was replaced. Then in 2021 it happened again, this time right outside my house. I had to laugh when I started it the morning after, but it wasn't so funny when the dealer installed a new cat and exhaust for $5500 (yep, no OEM cats to be had in spring of 2021, but they somehow found one last one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) A couple of days later I took the E to a muffler shop and had them install the Miller shield. Unfortunately, after an odd fender bender last week, I had to remove the cat shield. I spent most of an afternoon on a creeper unbolting each part. On the upside, it took a long time with the car jacked up but I got it off, on the downside a couple of the security bolt heads stripped while untightening them. At the time it didn't seem like an awesome feature because I had to carefully drill out the heads (an easy-out extractor defeated me) but I realized later that if you own the car you'll take the time to carefully remove the shield, but a thief won't bother to take that much time and just move on. Would definitely purchase another one if I get another Element.
