Thieves are using modern electronic technology to bypass manufacturers security systems and steal vehicles. Over the last few years vehicle theft has seen a 12% increase in the United Kingdom. Now in 2018 it is higher than ever due to an increase in 'Keyless Theft'.
So what is Keyless Theft? Well, most vehicles taken without keys are stolen using equipment which plugs into the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) port. This intelligent equipment 'hacks' the system and is able to bypass the vehicles integrated security protocols in order to program a new key.
Why not just get a Tracker? Tracking or theft recovery devices have their limitations and whilst benefiting the recovering of a vehicle after it has been stolen, but most do little if anything to prevent the initial theft. Most people do not realise, that even if the vehicle is found after being stolen, there are still costs involved for recovery, storage and or repair. These costs will likely affect future insurance premiums and you may have difficulty selling your car if it has been previously marked as a stolen vehicle.
To protect against the modern day thief, you must consider a form of OBD port security, and the ultimate in OBD port protection is the award winning PORTECTOR.

We Install Portector at your home or work place
Our team of installers are able to install most OBD Portectors within 2-3 hours. The Portector is very discreet. There are only two visible clues, the switch itself (which is about 2cm in diameter and sits between the OBD port and the footwell light on the lower dash panel) and a sticker next to the port. Both are invisible unless you've got your head in the footwell.
Two swipe cards are also provided; they're obviously not to be kept in the car (most people put them in a wallet and keep a spare at home). The only time they should be needed is when the car goes in to be serviced or have other work on that requires access to the OBD port. As and when that happens, you simply swipe your smart card over the switch to unlock the OBD (this works in a similar way to contactless payments in shops).
