The Importance of Locking Up Your Car

Locking your car is easy, right? Well, it’s more complicated than you might think, especially if you are the target of thieves. 


Imagine this scenario: You pull into the grocery store to pick up a bottle of milk and some hamburger buns for tonight’s family meal. You are only in the store for five minutes and come out to your car to find your valuables have been stolen from your vehicle. You locked your doors, yet there is no sign of a break-in.



What happened?

When leaving your car and locking it with the key fob on your key chain, thieves sitting in the parking lot can actually use a device that clones your vehicle’s security code emitted by the fob. Then, they can use that device to easily unlock your vehicle and sail away with your belongings without leaving a mark behind.


  •  Always try to stay at least two seconds behind the vehicle in front of you. This can help give you more reaction time in the event of an emergency.


  • To combat this theft danger, ALWAYS LOCK YOUR CAR FROM THE INSIDE WITH THE LOCK ON YOUR CAR DOOR. When pushing the lock button on your door, you are not emitting your vehicle’s security code. In addition to being fully aware of your surroundings, this safety precaution may prevent a break-in.


Safety First

Consider purchasing a vehicle theft protection alarm for your car. If someone tries to break in, the alarm will sound and may deter the thief. If nothing else, it will alert others around your vehicle that there is a problem and to call the police.
