4. Replace the original catalytic converter with an universal catalytic converter. Of course, a new aftermarket catalyst is cheaper than the old one you already have installed on the car.

5. Write or engrave the original catalytic converter with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the car or the registration number. You must know that the companies that buy these car catalysts are obliged to ask the seller for the identity card and the documents of origin of the catalyst they are buying.

6. Spray the catalytic converter with a brightly color such as orange, yellow, green, etc. This way you can confuse or discourage thieves from stealing it. If the thief is caught by the police, your catalyst will be the easiest to identify.

7. Install a more efficient alarm system that triggers at the slightest vibration of the car. When the thiefs tries to cut the catalyst from the car with an electric saw, the car alarm will go off.
