Although reports suggest that metal theft in the UK is down, the theft of catalytic converters (CATs) continues to grow, with vehicles that have good ground clearance being particularly vulnerable because of the relatively easy access to these valuable components.
The First Line Group (FLG) is typically associated with supplying premium quality direct replacement parts under its First Line, Borg & Beck ad Key Parts brands, but the continuing rise in the theft of CATs has led it to respond to the opportunity and add an anti-theft solution to its product portfolio in the form of the CATLOC range of devices.
CATLOC products protect the CAT in one of two ways, either by securing to the CAT itself and connecting it to the vehicle through a bespoke method of attachment, or by shielding its most vulnerable area and denying easy access, thus preventing its removal.
FLG has an exclusive distribution agreement to supply the CATLOC range of 20 part references to the motor factor sector and has stock in its distribution centre for immediate availability. Each CATLOC is engineered to maintain the vehicle’s performance characteristics, takes minutes to fit, comes with a 12-month warranty and includes comprehensive fitting instructions.
Along with its range of 45,000+ part numbers, CATLOC products can be found on the First Line website www.firstlineltd.com.
