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.
Fits all 2003-2011 Honda Elements with AWD and a OEM converter. *At this time the shields do not fit with side steps unless the extended bracket is removed. Comes with front and rear shields, installation hardware, tamper-proof screw kit, Cat Shield Protected sticker, and detailed installation guide.
REQUIRED TOOLS FOR INSTALLATION. Rivet Nut Tool with M6 Mandrel/Head, 1/4" bit driver, 10mm and 12 mm socket, drill, and 25/64 drill bit (no pilot bit). Installation Guide
*Professional installation recommended.
FREE SHIPPING IN THE CONTINENTAL US! Due to high demand, orders may take up to one week to ship.

Cat Shield was easily installed by a licensed Honda mechanic (whom happens to be my brother) on my 2004 Honda Element DX after someone stole my catalytic converter. The noise coming from the Cat Shield is really bad. It's most noticeable when slowing down for a stop sign/light or when in stop/go traffic. Houston has lots of congestion so the noise pretty annoying/unbearable. Definitely feel like I wasted $270 on the Cat Shield. Will probably remove the Cat Shield and take my chances....
Hello, thank you for sharing your experience. Did you replace your converter with an OEM or aftermarket converter? Our shields were specifically designed to protect OEM converters. If you replaced your stolen converter with an OEM converter, try replacing the exhaust hangers. Thank you.
Our MillerCat Honda Element Cat Shield arrived very quickly. We had a local auto shop do the installation. They said it was a bear to install and it took them 3 hours. There is no rattling or noise after installation. It looks like a deterrent to me. If I were a thief, I’d move on. I am very happy with our purchase. It offers peace of mind. And I feel certain it will save us time and money not dealing with a theft. We were lucky to have this done before experiencing a cc theft. Grateful for MillerCat.
Fingers crossed! Had my Cat stolen about a month ago. I ordered the Cat Shield and it came very quickly, which was a relief. I needed to get it installed before a road trip the very next week. So far so good. I have been driving with the shield installed for three weeks now (Honda Element). The garage that installed it assured me they would do adjustments if there was rattle or excessive noise. It's been fine. I haven't had to come back and make any changes. I know it's not a guarantee, but it makes me feel a little better having it there.
I purchased a Cat Shield for my 2007 Honda Element after learning it's a prime target for CC theft. I took the shield to a local muffler shop who installed, per the manual. I drove away feeling good but 10 minutes out it started making noise as the Cat Shield periodically came in contact with elements of the exhaust system, CC, pipe, etc. The mechanic who installed it took it in again and ground out a bit of the shield, on the two areas that it had the highest likelihood of contact. After that adjustment, no more noise and I'm satisfied with it, and sleep easier knowing it's installed.
Final note - I was a little disappointed that I wrote an email to Miller asking for advice on fixing this and never received a follow up email or phone call.
Thank you for your reply. We always appreciate every review and have made changes based on people's reviews. We are sorry to hear about your issues. We are very sensitive to complaints about noise and vibration because we put in a lot of testing to make a device that you will not hear. Sometimes it can be the engine mounts (that fade over time and need replacing) and sometimes the issues can require a design change. We frequently reach out to installers to hear about issues like yours so we can look to see if design changes are necessary.
We are sorry that you did not receive a response from us when you reached out to us. Can you let us know to which email you sent your question? We aim to be very responsive to customer questions and issues and want to make sure this doesn't happen again. Thank you again.
We haven't used Millercat shield yet; the catalytic converter is being replaced and the exhaust system repaired today. We're having the shield installed, delighted to have some kind of protection so we'll let you know if it works.
