Catalytic converters are a valuable component of a vehicle that contain precious metals such as platinum, rhodium, and palladium, which can be sold for a high price in the black market. Unfortunately, this has led to an increase in thefts of catalytic converters from parked vehicles. Here are some tips to help you protect your car from catalytic converter theft:

1. Park in well-lit areas: Thieves are less likely to target a car parked in a well-lit area where they can be easily seen.

2. Install a security system: Installing an alarm system or a motion sensor security camera can deter thieves from approaching your car.

3. Etch your VIN number on the converter: Etching your vehicle identification number (VIN) on the catalytic converter can make it more difficult for thieves to sell it.

4. Install a protective cover: Installing a protective cover over the catalytic converter can make it harder for thieves to access it. You can do this at your next service appointment at almost any auto shop.

5. Use anti-theft devices: Installing anti-theft devices such as a catalytic converter lock or clamp can make it much harder for thieves to remove the converter from your vehicle.

6. Park in a garage: Parking your car in a locked garage can provide an extra layer of protection against theft.

7. Be vigilant: Keep an eye out for any suspicious activity around your car, such as someone crawling underneath it or using a saw or other cutting tool.

By taking these preventive measures, you can greatly reduce the risk of your catalytic converter being stolen.
