Etch and Prevent Catalytic Converter Theft

Nov 18, 2022  -  G&C Tire and Auto Service  -  News & Updates

G&C is hosting another catalytic converter etching event on Saturday, December 10, from 10am to 2pm, at 14008 Willard Rd, Chantilly. If you missed it in the past, this is your opportunity to get the etching done so mark your calendar!

G&C has partnered with the Fairfax County Police Crime Prevention Unit from the Sully District Station to offer FREE CATETCH/CATGUARD Anti-Theft Labels which are applied to your catalytic converter. G&C will install these ultra-destruct labels, laser cut with a unique code and the URL of a secure, accredited database - the International Security Register (ISR) – on to the CAT. It will break into pieces if an attempt is made to remove them. In addition, a fluid that etches into metal is applied to the labels so that even if they are removed, the code and URL will remain clearly readable. Read more on how it works at

Prius, Tacoma, Lexus SUVs, and the Accord are some of the most targeted cars for catalytic converter theft. Visit us on one of the below days to protect your vehicle!
