Vehicle theft is on the rise

Our vehicles are the second most expensive asset we own as we need it for work, to go shopping, doctor’s appointments, taking our kids to soccer practice, and much more…. for many of us, our vehicles are vital to almost everything we do. Vehicles are valuable possessions—which is what makes them so appealing to thieves.   And while auto-theft is a problem across the country, seven metropolitan areas in Kansas and Missouri are ranked among the 100 worst cities for auto-theft in the country according to NICB (National Insurance Crime Bureau).   These metropolitan areas include:

  • Kansas City, MO Metro Area – #14

  • St. Joseph, MO Metro Area – #25

  • Wichita, KS Metro Area – #26

  • Springfield, MO Metro Area – #38

  • St. Louis, MO Metro Area – #43

  • Topeka, KS Metro Area – #53

  • Joplin, MO Metro Area – #66

  • Columbia, MO Metro Area – #140

  • Lawrence, KS Metro Area – #174

  • Cape Girardeau, MO Metro Area – #216

  • Jefferson City, MO Metro Area – #270

  • Manhattan, KS Metro Area – #298

Don’t let your vehicle be added to these growing statistics of stolen vehicles—protect your vehicle and invest in the Ravelco vehicle anti-theft device with Ravelco Midwest. There is no other vehicle anti-theft device on the market today that can protect your vehicle like Ravelco. With more than six million installations worldwide and not a single device failure to date, there is no better or more proven way to protect your vehicle, than Ravelco.  

The Ravelco (pronounced Ruh-vel-co) Vehicle Anti-Theft Device is installed in an easily accessible place under or flush mounted in the dashboard. A removable 16 pin male plug (which when not in use connects to your key chain) makes all the electronic connections. A hidden armored steel cable protects the wires from the rear of the RAVELCO base on through to the engine compartment where all the connections are made and camouflaged. When the plug is removed from the RAVELCO, it is impossible to start the vehicle.

Other vehicle immobilizer work by connecting to the wires under the dashboard, which is the first place thieves go to hotwire your ride. Ravelco hides its connection in the engine compartment, blending in with your vehicle’s existing wires. By using the same color for all of the wires (black) and hiding them alongside existing wires, even a determined thief would have to spend hours trying to trace and sort them from your vehicle’s operating system. 
Thieves have to find the right wires to hotwire a vehicle, and a Ravelco anti-theft device makes this impossible. While it is discreetly mounted under the dash or flush with the dash for convenient daily use, a steel wire protects the wiring through to the engine compartment, hiding the connections and keeping your vehicle safe.

A Ravelco customer is assured that their device is unique, and that no one else can start their vehicle simply by gaining access to another Ravelco plug.  Competitive products that have been developed allow only six or fewer possible plug combinations, and each device sold through a particular car dealer will all use the same plug!  THIS IS NOT THEFT PREVENTION!

Each Ravelco unit is hand made and tested before leaving our factory.  Protect your vehicle from car thieves—purchase your Ravelco vehicle anti-theft device today.
