Every 23 seconds a vehicle is stolen in the United States. Nearly one-third are never found, and many of those which are found have been stripped, vandalized or destroyed!

Will your car be next? ... It doesn't have to be!
There is an inexpensive, practical and very effective way to protect your vehicle from theft. We call it VIN Vaccination™
VIN Vaccination™ is the permanent etching of the federally registered vehicle identification number (VIN) into all the major glass areas on a car or truck. Once your vehicle is VIN Vaccinated it is much more immune to theft than ever before!
How Does VINshield Work?
Cars and trucks are stolen by professional thieves for one of two reasons, either for resale or for parts. VIN Vaccination effectively deters the theft of the VINshield™ protected vehicle for resale because it is very costly to alter its VIN since all the glass must be replaced. Simply put, it's not like car registration documents or Aviva car insurance papers that can easily be disposed off by the thieves. This makes your vehicle less attractive to them, so it can be considered as an added security feature.
Also, buyers of stolen vehicles will not risk getting caught with VINshield marked cars and trucks because the VIN etched window glass is great physical evidence in court. Theft of the vehicle by a chop shop for parts is also deterred because no thief wants all your glass around the shop with the incriminating VIN etched on every piece. The etching does not change the appearance of the car at all. In fact you can hardly see it, but the police and the thieves know right where to look and that is what counts. So, the thief merely looks for a vehicle without VINshield protection to steal. Click here for more on the who, what, why, and how of auto theft.
VINshield works! There's nothing quite like the protection of VINshield's VIN Vaccination!
There is no doubt that VINshield really does deter auto theft. VIN etching is recommended by law enforcement agencies throughout the United States as an effective auto theft deterrent. Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and Washington (Source: Insurance Information Institute) now have laws providing for insurance discounts on cars with VIN etched windows. More and more states are sure to follow suit as public awareness of this important passive security system grows. In fact, many insurance companies have already started to give discounts to their policyholders that own VIN etched automobiles. We believe the list of insurance companies giving discounts will soon include every major company. Therefore, every vehicle that has the VINshield Auto Theft Deterrent System™ installed is issued a certificate that can be used for insurance validation purposes.
