According to the Honolulu Police Department, it only takes 30-seconds for professional thieves to open a locked car, remove what they want and get away. The chance of having your vehicle broken into or stolen is 1 in 42 and during tough economic times, the chance of theft is often greater. We invest much of our time and money into maintaining our vehicle and equally important is investing in safety measures to prevent theft or break-ins.
Multiple Layers of Protection
The National Insurance Crime Bureau recommends "Layered Protection" for your vehicle. The more layers of protection, the more difficult it will be for thieves to break-in or steal your vehicle. The amount of "layers" you need will depend on your vehicle. While some may have the resources to invest in their vehicle's safety, many may find personal finances and preferences determine how many "layers" and what anti-theft device is best.
