Nothing is worse than working hard for something only to have it taken away by thieves. That feeling you get when you go out to your car and first see that broken window. It is a punch to the gut, no matter what.

In 2020 and again in 2021, my daughter, who was away at college, had her catalytic converter stolen. Not once, but twice! Thieves came back three weeks later and hit her car again. I put on a catalytic converter shield, and we have not been hit again for two years.

That expense, about $1000 for each occurrence, along with the frustration of dealing with it from several hundred miles away, led me to search for antitheft devices to prevent it from happening again.

And it is why I created

I am a regular dad. I do not sell catalytic converter shields myself. I do recommend them though.

Who am I?

I have a decade of experience in loss prevention, risk management, and fraud prevention. I was a police officer for a local police department in the ’90s and spent eight years in the Ohio Army National Guard.

In the early 2000s, I transitioned my career to technology and application development. For the past few years, I have specialized in Tech Education and web content development space building sites that provide useful information that helps people.

Earlier this year, I took over the site from my partner, Jason, who retired from law enforcement in 2022.

I mostly keep the site running but occasionally add new articles and resources as I find time.

Thanks for being here!
