Catalytic Converter Label ID System - Adds a permanent etched UNIQUE ID on your cat and a way to identify your cat if ever stolen and found

We're so glad we were able to find another unique product to help deter cat theft

A unique item to aid in deterring catalytic converter theft for your Element, and any other vehicle or item you have. 

Ultra-destruct self-etching CATETCH/CATGUARD labels incorporate a UNIQUE ID/PIN code for your catalytic converter (not a vehicle VIN number). If someone tries to peel the label off, the permanent etching is still retained and visible.

Quick and Easy Install:

  • Apply CATETCH/CATGUARD labels directly to your clean, cool, and dry catalytic converter and use supplied etching fluid (with included brush) to the label as instructed

  • Idle your vehicle for a few minutes to permanently etch your CATETCH/CATGUARD PIN code and website into your catalytic converter.

  • Apply International Security Register window warning decals to your front driver's side and/or passenger's side windows

  • Register your CATETCH/CATGUARD PIN code, free of charge, in the International Security Register database using your vehicle VIN, make and model and owner information

Due to the heat shield on OEM Element catalytic converters, we suggest ordering two per Element (one unique ID on two labels). One to put on the cat itself near the downstream O2 sensor on the driver's side, and the other on the heat shield on the passenger's side so thieves will see the labels from either side, and move on.

It's highly recommended that you register your stickers/UNIQUE ID numbers on the ISRCODECHECK.com international database to track stolen items

We still encourage the use of a cat shield or cat cover, to additionally protect your cat until something is done to fully wipe out cat theft. Adding these should be a definite "Nope!" to those out there who help themselves to other people's property.

Check local laws and state statutes regarding requirements for catalytic converter labeling requirements. Some states require the vehicle's actual VIN to be permanently marked on vehicles. These don't have the vehicle VIN but a unique, one-of-a-kind ID.

Additional Information

When it comes to protecting your vehicle from catalytic converter theft, the Catalytic Converter Label ID System is an effective solution. This unique product adds a permanent etched ID on your catalytic converter, allowing for easy identification if it is ever stolen and found. Here are some things to consider when using this system:

Ultra-destruct self-etching labels
The CATETCH/CATGUARD labels are designed to be ultra-destructive. This means that if someone tries to remove the label, the permanent etching will still be retained and visible. The label also incorporates a unique PIN code for your catalytic converter, adding an extra layer of security.

Quick and easy installation
The CATETCH/CATGUARD labels are easy to install. Simply apply the label directly to your clean, cool, and dry catalytic converter and use the supplied etching fluid (with included brush) to apply the label as instructed. After applying the label, let your vehicle idle for a few minutes to permanently etch your CATETCH/CATGUARD PIN code and website into your catalytic converter.

International Security Register
To ensure maximum protection, it is recommended that you register your CATETCH/CATGUARD PIN code in the International Security Register database. This free service allows you to track stolen items and provide law enforcement agencies with important information to aid in the recovery of your stolen catalytic converter.

Heat shield on OEM Element catalytic converters
Due to the heat shield on OEM Element catalytic converters, it is suggested to order two CATETCH/CATGUARD labels per Element. One label should be put on the catalytic converter itself near the downstream O2 sensor on the driver's side, and the other on the heat shield on the passenger's side. This ensures that thieves will see the labels from either side and be deterred from stealing your catalytic converter.

Use of a cat shield or cat cover
While the Catalytic Converter Label ID System is an effective solution for deterring catalytic converter theft, it is still recommended to use a cat shield or cat cover as an additional layer of protection. By using multiple forms of protection, you can ensure that your vehicle is safeguarded against theft.

Overall, the Catalytic Converter Label ID System is an effective solution for deterring catalytic converter theft and protecting your vehicle. With quick and easy installation, ultra-destruct self-etching labels, and the option to register your CATETCH/CATGUARD PIN code in the International Security Register database, this system offers peace of mind and added security for vehicle owners.
