What is Keyless Theft?

Keyless theft is a growing concern for motorists across the UK.

It is carried out with the help of relay boxes which emulates the signal from your car key. This provides thieves with access to your vehicle without forced entry. Your vehicle can be driven away as if the key was present.

Am I at risk?

A growing number of new cars are made with keyless entry systems that allow owners to open them with the brush of a hand, as long as their actual key is nearby.

New research by the consumer group Which? identifies that hundreds of popular cars – including four of the five best-selling models in the UK – are susceptible to keyless theft. (source: BBC News).

Thatcham Research assessed the vulnerability of cars to relay theft, identifying the Ford Mondeo, Hyundai Nexo, Kia ProCeed, Lexus UX, Porsche Macan, and Toyota Corolla Hybrid as some of the most vulnerable. (Source BBC News)

So, How Can I Protect My Vehicle?

First of all, take the standard security measures: ensure your car is fully locked, and keep keys away from doors and windows. This will minimise the chance of a thief being able to find the key and amplify it’s signal and is good practice for protecting your belongings generally. (Source: Autoexpress)

However, this will not fully stop keyless theft. Most vehicles are constantly emitting their signal, meaning your vehicle will always be at risk of theft.

As a result, We have developed our range of signal blocking car key stores to address this problem. All of our models allow you to store your keys securely, shielded within a protective signal blocking lining, which ensures that no radio signal can be picked up by external relays.

Additionally, the design of our products prevents theft through older physical methods such as through letterboxes.

To provide the highest level of security for day to day use, follow the guidelines below:

1. Make sure your vehicle keys are placed securely within the Signal Blocking Key Store. Then, ensure the inner lid is closed fully and the over flap is securely pulled into place.
2. Place your Key Store at the furthest practical point from your vehicle, and away from external walls.
3. Check the effectiveness of the Key Safe on a regular basis. Carry out the tests printed on the product packaging insert often.
4. Should your Key Store develop any damage or gaps in the closing flaps, its effectiveness may be diminished.
