The Gen 3 Cat Shield™ is the best fitting protection device for your 2010-2015 Prius. The shield was carefully measured against the frame of the vehicle to give it the most accurate fit. Spacers, noise dampeners, and 3D features on the shield ensure that there is minimal noise and vibration. The shield covers the most vulnerable areas of the converter and minimizes wasted material. Fully removable and galvanic corrosion resistant.

I have installed several Prius cat shields of several different gen cars also did a 2017 Lexus ct -200
I must say they are very well made and the installation is very straightforward
The fit and finish is amazing. I always take a photo to show my client how nice it looks and what a shame...it’ll never be seen !
The protection these kits offer is solid. Considering what a nightmare getting your cat stolen can be...this is a no brainer and a easy sell. I will recommend the cat shield to all my Prius clients
About me: I have changed my own oil a couple of times. The only jack I have came with the car. I owned a cheap socket set, but had no idea what a Rivet Nut Tool was. My level of mechanical proficiency was enough to install this Cat Shield with hardly any trouble! The instructions included were very thorough, and the whole project took me a few hours.
I got some cheap jack stands and only had to lift the front of my Prius. Depending on how long your rivet nut tool is (not a rivet gun/pop rivet tool), you may need to have a plan to make sure you can get your car high enough. I could have saved some time and $ by starting with a tougher drill bit. The one I got on Amazon indicated it was for metal, but the one I got from the old guy at the hardware store after the first one died was MUCH better.
The other tip I have from my one experience is this: When it was time to drill out the hole that sits over the fuel/brake line, I stuck the old heat shield in between for added protection. The drill bit definitely went through harder than I would have liked, and I think the heat shield might have saved me.
So happy with this product!
