You hear all those scary stories about cars being stolen and you always think ‘that wont happen to me’ but what if it does …
For those of you that don’t know, it is possible for a thief to gain access to your beloved car without having to steal your keyfob … there is technology easily accessible that will allow them to copy your fob and gain access to your car while it is parked on your driveway! How is this possible, keyless entry, which comes as standard on all S550 mustangs and other modern cars. There are various techniques these thieves can use and a quick google search can explain in more detail but there are a number of simple ways to protect your car, and that’s what I am here to explain
1) Fit an old fashioned lock. There are plenty of steering wheel locks out there that makes driving away almost impossible. Just by having a lock could simply deter a would -be-thief from even attempting to steel your car.
2) Block the signal with a faraday pouch. To prevent relay theft at home make sure your keys are out of sight and out of range of the car and kept in an aluminium tin or faraday pouch to block the signal.
3) Fit a tracker. If in the unfortunate event your car is stolen a tracker can be used to follow the car via GPS. If you have a valuable car, tracker devices are a great shout.
4) Out of sight, out of mind. Keeping a car stored away in a locked garage overnight and during the day is an obvious way to make sure it isn’t spotted by would-be-thieves in the local area.
I personally and use the faraday pouch bellow. It is a great size for the mustang key fob and still bulky enough not to get lost in the depths of my coffee table draw! You get two pouches so I can keep my spare key safe locked away safe and still have my everyday keys in my second pouch easily accessible for day to day use.
