Ravelco Anti-Theft Device

Ravelco Canada West Holdings has launched Canadian sales of a patented anti-theft device that has been sold in the U.S. for over 36 years.

The Ravelco Anti-Theft Device is said to be a simple, yet effective, solution for theft of heavy equipment, trucks, cars, classic autos, ATVs, boats – any vehicle that has an ignition system.

There are no codes to remember and no secret buttons to push. According to the company, whenever you leave your vehicle all you have to do to activate the Ravelco system is "pull out the plug" and connect it to your key chain.

It is like taking a key part of your vehicle with you.

Many new car buyers don't want all the bells and whistles associated with today's alarm systems because they know that no one pays attention to them, the company says.

A removable 16-pin male plug (which connects to your key chain when not in use) makes all the electronic connections. When the plug is removed, it is impossible to start the vehicle.

Unlike GPS units that may tell you where your vehicle is AFTER it's been taken, the Ravelco helps prevent thefts from occurring, the company says.
