Over 5 million sold. NO vehicles stolen!

See why the Ravelco is better than all others

Anti-theft protection comes in two parts

Engineered for security and simplicity. Target hardened installation is designed to defeat the way thieves think.

Ravelco Anti-Theft Device

Engineered for superior anti-theft protection, yet easy to use by just removing the key chain sized plug, and the engine can’t start and won’t run. Insert the plug, and your vehicle operates normally and won’t interfere with vehicle systems.

Target-Hardened installation

The Ravelco is installed to work against the way thieves steal vehicles by hiding wires in hard to access non-obvious locations. Under the dash, our wires are encased in hardened steel for maximum protection.

Millions of Satisfied Customers

Because of my club’s proximity to Mexico, the theft of vehicles here is rampant and some of their favorite targets are well-equipped Jeeps. A couple years ago, several of us had Ravelco ATDs installed in our Jeeps. So far, of the group who had the Ravelco installed, there have been 2 failed attempts to steal the Jeeps. During that time, at least 3 other members, who did not have the Ravelco installed, had their Jeeps stolen. We list the Ravelco as a “Recommended Product” on our website and encourage members to have the device installed.

The THIRD attempt thwarted for Marcos. Do you think Marcos believes in Ravelco?!
Well, it’s me again. You guys are probably tired of hearing from me by now. I recently traded in my 2001 Denali for a 2008 Denali. I figured it was time for a new one. Ravelco stopped two attempts to steal my 2001 SUV. Well, guess what? They tried stealing my 2008 Denali. And Ravelco stopped them AGAIN. I want to say thanks for a great product.
