RAVELCO AUTO SECURITY
 
"Arguably the best anti theft device known to man."
 
     

 

TESTIMONIALS

"I did lots of research to find a practical, affordable, and most of all, effective theft deterrent – and I ended up looking at Ravelco... I was present during the installation and can unequivocally state that this system is for real. On top of the Ravelco's design and the standard in-depth installation that uses yards of identical black wiring, I witnessed [my installer] doing several other Ravelco tricks in the engine bay, all of which were designed to thoroughly confuse a would-be thief. The Ravelco is a real paradox: a simple design that makes theft very tough for the bad guys. Interesting aspects of the Ravelco system include the fact that these wires work in pairs, and if a thief starts clipping them, your car won't run. Trying to imitate the coded plug by probing the base unit won't work either – with over 100,000 combinations, through 16 holes, this would take some time if you didn't start blowing fuses (Which you would!)... Car thieves are smart enough to swap out high-end vehicles' computers to work with a key that they already have, or write down the VIN number, go to a dealership, and get a new key for your car right there, but they won't be able to figure this out!"

". . . arguably the best antitheft device known to man . . . "

"Five weeks ago I bought a new Ford F-150 Raptor, knowing it is a limited edition vehicle and that I am forced to park it on the street in inner city Los Angeles, security was one of my top priorities. By the end of the first week I had a both Ravelco and a Viper alarm installed. Well last weekend it happened, someone broke in my Raptor and tried to steal it. The would-be thief was definitely a pro. He cut the battery cable disabling my alarm (that was easy), then he tried to start the truck and no luck. He must have thought the trick was in the auxiliary switches because all of them were in the on position (I always leave them off) and the cover to the switches was popped off. I’m sure he was then frustrated and just looked through my glove box (that he left open) and center console (which he also left up) and left without my Raptor. How do I know he was a pro you ask, well he didn’t cause any damage getting into the truck, and knew how to disable my alarm. He also did not trash the truck (no slashed tires, no slashed seats) and he didn’t take the other stuff of value like the child seat, tie-downs, sun glasses, etc. So to make a long story short, thank you Ravelco for producing a high quality product and saving my truck. P.S. When I bought the truck I remember thinking 'Do I really need a Ravelco… it’s kind of expensive' well the answer is a resounding 'Yes.' It is worth every penny. Thanks again."

"Hi, I just want to say thanks for the Ravelco device! My 2000 Honda Civic was stolen, stripped and recovered in September near my home, with repairs totaling $6,600, 66% of the car's value. At the time I had neither an anti-theft device nor alarm on it. It took a month to repair, and the day after I got it back I had Ravelco installed after researching deterrent systems. I felt better with the Ravelco installed, but knew it wouldn't prove itself to me unless I saw evidence of a thwarted theft. Well, yesterday I discovered just that when I went to my car - the steering column and ignition were damaged, but my car was still there. It's a great feeling, especially because I can't help but suspect it's the same thieves who tried to steal it for a second time!"
Tracey Mullane, Boston, Massachusetts

"Being in Law Enforcement I knew that if my truck was stolen, the chance of getting it back in one piece was going to be slim to none. Before I bought my FORD F250 I had researched a lot of different security systems. I finally settled on the Ravelco. Just for the simple reason that was a proactive security system vs. an alarm system that is only reactive. Plus I have seen several high quality, top end alarms be bypassed and stolen without the alarm ever going off. I had my truck about a week and called Ravelco. The installer was very professional and was very meticulous. I am very anal about my truck and was curious as to how this system is installed so I watched him install the entire system. It took him over three hours to install this system. This system is for real. A car thief would have to have several hours to figure out where the wires go and be able to retrace them back to where they are supposed to be. Even if they were to start 'jumping' wires or plugs there is a better chance of blowing fuses then ever getting that vehicle to run. He did such a great job that even me as the owner had a hard time finding where all the wires went to. What a superb installation. Two and half hours after having the Ravelco installed in my truck I went to Costco to grab something. My wife and I were not in the store for more than 20 minutes in the middle of the day. When we came out to the truck I used the remote to unlock the truck. When I got in I heard a dinging noise and didn’t know why it was dinging at me. I then went to insert the key and realized that my ignition was destroyed. It was at this time that I realized that someone had just tried to steal my truck. My truck that I had only owned for 1 week was saved due to RAVELCO. Ravelco, you guys rock. You have an awesome product. I feel safe parking my truck anywhere at any time. I am confident that my truck will be there when I come out, barring being towed away. As far as someone trying to steal it by means of hot wiring the truck, it’s not going to happen. Thank you very much for saving my truck. Feel free to use this testimonial on your website if you choose to."

"One year ago, my S4 was stolen from the parking lot of the Montclair Whole Foods.It was found the next day in Newark, wheels and lights gone, sitting on the rotors, engine running. This, despite a top-of-the-line Clifford alarm, with all the bells and whistles. After the car was repaired, I had the Ravelco anti-theft device installed. About two hours ago (10:30 pm), I got off the train in Newark and went to retrieve my car from the parking lot across the street. As I approached the vehicle, I saw 2 men in the car, very busily trying to start it. I said, "Hey, that's my car." They jumped out and sort of stood there for a minute staring at me. I said, "Well?" One of them responded, "Damn, we been here almost an hour. What the hell you got in that thing?" Then they took off. I went out to the street and flagged down an officer. When the officer from the auto theft division (or whatever they call it) arrived, he expressed surprise that the car hadn't been stolen, given the high degree of local expertise in the field. I showed him my Ravelco plug and explained how it works. He was pretty impressed. So am I."

"I wanted to send you an unsolicited note to thank you for installing such a great product into my Ford F250. I cannot tell you how highly I recommend this product to ANYONE who wants to protect their investment. As you know I had my truck stolen and completely stripped in October 2009, however, since recovering the truck (or what was left of it in December) and subsequently installing RAVELCO - there have been two new attempts to steal it (once from an office building and once from a restaurant parking lot) and the thieves were completely unsuccessful. For anyone who has any doubt that this device is legit - please feel free to show them this email."

"On Saturday, February 7, 2009, our company President and CFO were in meetings with a potential new customer (a fairly sizeable supermarket chain). While they were on site showing off one of our newer refrigerator trucks to the director of produce, thieves stole two of our brand new 2008 Freightliner trucks with the trailers connected that we parked in what we thought was a secure area. On the drive back to our office I Googled "anti-theft device" on my Blackberry and thank God Ravelco popped up. We called your Houston office and spoke with a salesman. The following Monday we had 11 of our rigs fitted with the Ravelco Device. I know you are thinking we are locking the barn after the cow left but we are very happy and feel secure now that we have Ravelco! The reason for this letter is, while your installers were here I had a Ravelco installed on my personal 2009 Lincoln Navigator and yesterday your Ravelco saved it. I was parked right outside my office window and when I came out to go to lunch, I noticed my door ajar and the steering column destroyed. Oh well . . . but at least I still have my SUV! By the way, the police officer that came to take the report said he has a Ravelco on his own car. Thanks again Ravelco for a wonderful product!"

"After having my 2002 Subaru WRX stolen twice in Newark, NJ during my dental school experience (2004-2008), I decided it was time to look into finding the best security system for my ride. I found the Ravelco system through a Google search and decided this security system would give me the peace of mind I needed. After setting up my appointment, the installer Chuck, drove to my location and hooked up my WRX in 3-4 hours. The whole set up is so stealth, and I knew there was no way any thief was gonna be able to get around it. So, the real reason why I decided to write this testimonial. I drove my car up to Edison, NJ to hang out with my cousin and we decided to get a few beers at TGI Friday's, just a few miles away from his house. I parked and pulled out my Ravelco plug. We left Friday's an hour and a half later and while trying to disarm the stock alarm using the keyless remote, the first thing I noticed was that it didn't beep. I didn't think much of it. I jumped into the driver seat and noticed the seat had been moved back and my feet where 6 inches from the pedals. I knew it right then...SOMEONE HAD BEEN IN MY CAR. I looked at the steering column and the ignition...the plastic had been ripped off and the ignition cylinder had been pulled...they tried to steal my baby, ten days after the Ravelco system was installed. Thankfully, they couldn't get the car to start. I have no doubt that without the Ravelco system, I would have lost my dream car. Thank you sooo much Chuck for a great install and thank you Ravelco!! I don't know how anyone with who owns a car they love can get along without it!!"
Samir Shah, Edison, New Jersey

"I have literally sold thousands and thousands of Ravelcos in the last 20 years. They have never made a liar out of me. My customers will ask me which I recommend – the alarm or the Ravelco? My answer has always truthfully been the Ravelco. It is also an antitheft device that everyone can afford! I personally know how great the product is, but when our law enforcement customers request the Ravelco… I know that we made the right decision when we started selling them. I have seen a lot of different antitheft devices over the years, everything else has come and gone – but the Ravelco is still here. That to me is a statement of dependability. I cease to offer any option that I lose confidence in. That has never been the case with the Ravelco Antitheft Device. It just keeps proving itself. We have customers who won’t use anything else. Thank you for giving us a product we can confidently offer as a dependable antitheft device to our customers."

"I've just retired with 30 years of experience as a police officer, and I'm very familiar with the easy pickings of cars, even those equipped with traditional alarm systems. Professional car thieves keep up with the latest technology of these types of systems. Thus, they can often be defeated by a highly motivated well-trained criminal. Thieves target the car they want, and then work quickly to start them and usually bring them to a predetermined location where they can successfully strip them of the car parts that they are looking for. Car tracking systems may help locate the vehicle after it is stolen, but often the vehicle is already significantly damaged before it is found. People should understand that tracking systems are for vehicle recovery, not theft prevention. Traditional alarm and tracking systems don't always provide the type of deterrent and prevention that most automobile owners are looking for. Today, with the number of factory installed systems and after-market alarm devices, many people aren't even fazed when they hear a car alarm go off. The thieves know this. Given my experience as a cop, I'm familiar with your product, having seen many attempted motor vehicle thefts foiled when they couldn't get the car started. After exploring many types of systems, I chose the Ravelco system for my personal vehicle. In my opinion, it is the best device on the market to achieve my main objective, which is not to be able to start the car in the first place. With your system, I can park my car and rest assured that it will be there when I return. If by some chance they do try to steal it, I'm confident that they'll quickly give up and take their business elsewhere, saving me a lot of unnecessary grief, aggravation and down time that owners experiences when their car is stolen."
Bill Abbatematteo, retired Police Captain, North Providence, Rhode Island Police Department

"For what its worth, I am a huge fan of Ravelco. Much of my business is done in Honduras and Nicaragua and we keep a half dozen or so 4wd vehicles on hand to be used to get us out to the tobacco fields. All of them have Ravelcos installed and we have never had one stolen and it certainly isn't from the lack of trying. One night the guard came in and said, 'again, someone is trying to steal the F250'. I told him, let's just watch him. And we did, for nearly 20 minutes he tried to hot wire the truck and finally he just gave up and walked away. We then had him picked up the next day as we knew exactly who it was. In total we have experienced over 30 break-ins over the last decade and have never lost a vehicle. Sure they mess up the steering column and sometimes the dash, but we have never lost a truck. It is simply the best anti-theft device on the market. It is so simple, always works, and never will fritz out on you like an alarm. Many Ravelco installers do it right at your house in your driveway - it takes about 3 hours."
Steve Saka, Goffstown, New Hampshire, Jeep Rubicon owners forum

"Early on Easter Sunday at the El Palachio hotel parking lot in Miami while I was on vacation, my 2004 Chevy Tahoe was broken into. Judging by the damage they did to the steering column, ignition, and front grill, they must have spent a good while trying to take my car. I still have my truck thanks to Ravelco. You have the best car anti-theft device on the market in my opinion and your installers are courteous and professional. Thanks for making such a great product."
Patrick Witt, Brooklyn, New York

“I read all the testimonies, yet I was still skeptical. Well, no longer. I bought a new Silverado on May 19, 2006. I put 24 " wheels on it, custom stereo everything. I thought OnStar would protect me, that's what the dealer said anyway. Well it was stolen June 12 a little over 3 weeks after I bought it and 1 week after I put on the wheels. From a government building none the less. Well, after the insurance hassle, police etc. etc. I got it back in August, got new wheels, new system everything but also the Ravelco. Well, last night at 3:00 am. I was awakened by a man shouting "IT'S NOT STARTING COME ON!!!" I looked out the window and my door was open and two guys were driving off in a beat up Honda Civic. I'm sure they were pissed and confused, but I still have my truck, thank you Ravelco. And Jason out here in Las Vegas is the man.”

"I just want you people at Ravelco to know that we are very loyal customers. We trade vehicles every two years and we have had your product in all of our last eight vehicles. As best as I can remember your Ravelco system had saved at least two of our vehicles. Our most recent purchase was a 2002 Chevy Silverado Pick-Up Truck, bought from a Chevrolet Dealer in Houston, Texas whom I'll not name. Before we made the deal, we asked if they could install the Ravelco System on our new truck. Being a typical salesman and wanting to close the deal, he said of course! When we arrived to pick up our new truck, my husband noticed that they did not install the Ravelco like we asked. When we asked our salesman why, he now started back-tracking and told us that all the new trucks now come standard with a factory antitheft device built right in and we did not need a Ravelco. They were right, it does come with one, but they were so very wrong because it did not stop the theft of our truck. On September 14, 2001, it was stolen right from our home and it was driven right across our front lawn in order to get around the other cars in our driveway. The Texas Highway Patrol recovered our truck three days later in the woods. It was then towed to the same Chevrolet Dealer where we purchased the truck. The next morning when we went to meet the insurance man at the body shop I asked the body shop manager how could it have been stolen because it had the factory antitheft device system on it. He laughed and said that he had five stolen recoveries in his shop right now that also had the factory systems on them. He told me that they steal them all the time with those factory alarm and antitheft systems and that they are installed from the factory just to keep the amateurs away. He said if we wanted to keep it from ever getting stolen again we should install what he has on his own personal truck . . . a Ravelco! I said No Kidding! What a bunch of creeps! That is what we wanted in the first place. They totaled our truck and we bought a new one elsewhere. The first thing we did before it left the dealer was to have a Ravelco installed on it. Now we feel safe."

"Two years ago I caught someone trying to steal my car. They were doing it in a way that would not set off my alarm. That prompted me to do a bunch of research about the current state of the art of auto security. Much to my chagrin, most of the items on the market right now are easily defeated by car thieves. There was only one product that everyone said worked, called a Ravelco device, it consists of a multi-pronged plug and socket that disables multiple electrical systems in your car... They sent a technician to my house to do the install and he did an excellent job. The solution is simple and elegant. It is not an alarm but a device that makes your car un-drivable. It uses a coded dongle and the installer will pick multiple systems that are disabled when the dongle is removed so even if the starter is hotwired, the car cannot run without the dongle. The installer will also go to great pains to disguise where wiring has been spliced. My experience with other mass-installed alarm systems is that they use bright red wire for power and always put the controller and the siren in the same spot. I have used the Ravelco for several years now. It is completely foolproof and couldn't be simpler to operate. When you pull the dongle, the car stops and cannot be restarted, period. No false alarms, no waking the neighbors. I feel confident parking my car almost anywhere. They give you two dongles up front and you get a code to order new ones from the company if you should lose one… Two weeks ago I accidentally left my car door open overnight. When I opened the car door to go to work I realized my mistake. Someone had been in my car and had opened my fuse box to look for the alarm shutoff. They had also opened my hood to start the car. The Ravelco had completely foiled them. I love it!"

"Just an unsolicited note to tell you that this 8th Ravelco Antitheft Device is performing wonderfully in my latest vehicle. I could not rest until I had a Ravelco installed. As a retired police chief, I can attest to the many reports that came to my attention over the years of stolen vehicles and of those attempts that failed. All of the latter categories were protected by Ravelco. Sure a window had to be replaced and perhaps a new steering column cover and ignition installed . . . but the vehicle stayed put just where the owners parked them! You have a remarkable product, state of the art knowledge and a bona fide honest approach to your customers and their security needs. You are free to use any portion of my endorsement for Ravelco."
W.G. "Bill" Rush, FBI National Academy Graduate, Houston, Texas

"I had just done some work to my Civic Hatchback and decided I would take my girlfriend for a ride down to Circuit City in Wayne so we could pick up a new computer, something I would never do before having my Ravelco installed. I parked the car and removed my Ravelco plug as I always do and went into the store for I'd say about 45 minutes. When I returned to the car, I looked in the window and saw the panel that covers my fuse box and under dash wiring was on my passenger seat and my door was open. When I got in the car, the ignition was in the on position without a key and my radio was on. My ignition was not damaged, which led me to believe that the thieves used a shaved down key. They did not touch anything in the car, i.e. radio, speakers, or any other parts... They wanted the car and nothing else. Without the Ravelco, I know my car would not have been there when I got back. My brother, Steve and I recommend you personally to everyone we meet and tell them that the bottom-line is that Ravelco is the only way to keep your car out of thieves hands. Although some people remain skeptical, I hope this is proof positive that thieves just cannot bypass a Ravelco system and steal your car. Thank you for protecting my car and the piece of mind and also all the extra sleep I can now get knowing my car is protected. Thank You."

"Protection Perfection"
Denise Adams, The Herald Coaster Newspaper

"A friend at the office bought a 2005 BMW fully loaded. He had it at the office, and I was talking to him about Ravelco, and told him that he needs to get one ASAP. He said that he got the $4000.00 car alarm system from BMW with Lojack and all. Well, I gave him your card, and he smiled nice and tucked it in his pocket... Not a week later, his car was stolen. It took the cops 4 days to find it. They said that the thiefs disabled the Lojack first, and then used a new box called a remote lighter that lets them steal the transponder codes. Well he got it back, and needs $22,000.00 worth of repairs and parts replaced to get it back to normal. So, I again told him that he should call you and get a Ravelco put in. He smiled, and said that BMW replaced the car alarm system, and upgraded it to a UNBEATABLE one... Well you know what I am going to say. 24 hours after getting it back to full deal, the car was gone again. It is now 30 days, and the unbeatable BMW is still gone. I am 100% happy with my Ravelco. In fact, I had my car at the shop and they took the outer plug off, and then called me to say that the car would not start, and they were getting ready to take apart the whole electrical system because they could not figure it out. Well, in passing he mentioned that they took the grey plug off. I told him I could fix it for a free oil change, he agreed and I told him to put it back on. Well, it started right up and worked perfect. I got the free oil change, and you got 4 mechanics that are debating about putting them in their car from that..."

"I just don't think there is a better way to secure my new van than with your device. My 2003 Tacoma was stolen one month after I paid it off. I got a good deal on a new 2004 Tacoma, but the prices went up by about 1% in the '04 model year. After paying sales tax again, plus replacing the contents that were stolen, I ended up paying about $3500 out of pocket. This figure includes my insurance deductible of $250. (BTW, I have State Farm insurance and they gave me a very good settlement - better than I expected actually.) If the truck had not been stolen, but only damaged during an attempted theft (e.g., had I known about Ravelco back then) I would only have had to pay the $250 deductible. Most people don't think about this, but even if you have good insurance and a low deductible as I do, having your car stolen results in MAJOR expenses, and a whole string of annoying hassles. I had to drive a rental car (paid for by State Farm) for a month, and I had to go through the shopping/negotiating frustrations of buying a new truck all over again. I don't know about you, but that is something I hate to do. Of course, I could have filed a claim against my homeowners insurance for the contents of my stolen truck, but my insurance agent advised against it, saying that filing multiple claims so closely together might result in my being classified as "high risk." I could have lost my insurance or seen my rates go up. That sort of seemed like punishing me for someone elses crime. Geez! So you can see why I want to get the Ravelco installed on my '04 Odyssey ASAP. I don't want to go through that again. BTW, the new '04 Odyssey's come with factory installed security alarm systems. The dealer just couldn't understand why that failed to impress me during his sales pitch. The little blinky light on the dash may be a deterrent for teenage joy riders, but I won't trust it one hoot in protecting my van from professional thieves. Please extend my thanks to all the folks on your end. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!!!!!"

"In October, we had two of our Freightliner rigs stolen, the thieves drove them right through our wrought iron fence! That wasn't bad enough but one of our lowboy trailers was ferrying a $545,000 backhoe, and the other had a $165,000 dozer on it. The trucks were found a month later in Mexico, sadly the backhoe and dozer are still missing. After we installed your Ravelco Anti Theft Device in all 23 of our trucks . . . not one piece of equipment has been stolen! The police said there is an active theft ring in Mexico doing this to heavy equipment in Arizona and New Mexico. Unfortunately, we still have had two theft attempts but they could not steal our trucks. This letter is to just say thanks. We have had anti theft devices installed on our trucks before that just interrupted the key or the starter but they were easily bypassed. Even our own employees could do it. But, since your Ravelco system disables the engine's computer system it has proven itself effective to us."
Paul T., Flagstaff, Arizona

"I just wanted to thank you again for the Ravelco. It hasn’t even been a month since you installed it, and last night someone tried stealing my car in the garage I park at. They smashed my driver's side window in, and disabled the horn of my car alarm. It was obvious that stealing my car was their sole intention, because NOTHING was taken from my car. The car needs to be towed and have its ignition fixed, but that’s better than it needing to be found. Seeing the Ravelco in its "passive action" definitely has put me at ease about spending a little extra money on having it installed. I know I would never forgive myself had I not had it installed and this happened. Thank you. One of my friends with the same year and model as mine is very intent on getting the Ravelco and having it installed."
Kolapo DaSilva, Silver Springs, Maryland

"On May 10, we purchased (because of our age) probably our last vehicle, a Mercury Grand Marquis. It was a demo, and it already had your Ravelco Antitheft System on it. The salesman told us that the Ravelco was just a kill switch that the car dealer installed and because of all the traveling we do, we needed a full-blown alarm system. Not knowing too much about security, I took his advice and let him sell me a $900.00 alarm system with back up battery, anti scan, and a cell phone dialer that would actually page me if someone was trying to steal our car. The very next Saturday, on May 12, we went shopping at Emerald Mall. When we came back out to the parking area . . . much to our surprise, our car door and trunk were wide open. The steering column was destroyed and get this, the alarm was not only disarmed but stolen! We wondered why our car was still there. When the tow truck driver arrived, he asked us for the plug for the Ravelco. He plugged it in, used some pliers to pull on a rod in the steering column and our car started! The police officer told us if it hadn't been for the Ravelco, our car would be gone. Thank you so much for saving our car."
Chocky Pelamonte, Seekonk, Massachusetts

“We didn’t need the Ravelco Antitheft Device installed on our 2002 Suburban.” Our salesman told us that, because our Suburban came from the factory with the OnStar System. Two weeks ago our 21 day old Suburban was stolen! We contacted the OnStar people and they said they could not locate our vehicle. Last Saturday, near the Canadian border, our vehicle was found by accident when the police busted a chop shop. I asked the NYPD autotheft division why the OnStar people couldn’t locate my vehicle. They said the thieves break off the antenna used for the OnStar, which is mounted on the roof over the driver’s side and the vehicle cannot be tracked. Please send me your Ravelco system so we can have it installed on our Suburban when we get it back from the body shop. We had our last Ravelco installed in Dallas when we lived there and it foiled the car thieves 2 times that we know of. We will never be without a Ravelco again!”
Jon C., New York, New York

"Early in 2007 we had the Ravelco installed on four of our F350 pickup trucks after one was broken into and the winch stolen off of it. This year we've had two attempts now to steal one of these trucks and both failed miserably due to the Ravelco. The first attempt was actually caught by our security camera and you can see the thief get through the fence and then pop the door lock to easily get into the truck. But then for the next 45 mins you can see the lights go on / off while they attempt to start the vehicle. Finally their cohorts drive by again and pick them up because they CAN'T GET THE TRUCK STARTED! This latest attempt happened just before the July 4th weekend (2009) and while I haven't seen the security camera footage I grabbed some pictures to send to you - I especially like the picture that shows the damaged steering column with the Ravelco right there! What a GREAT product! It definitely works as advertised!"

"I have owned one of your devices on a previous vehicle, and as an insurance adjuster I feel your product is the only device which will securely protect my vehicle from theft. My experience is that any other product on the market has a weakness which will not protect my vehicle 100%."

"I just wanted to say that Ravelco is a truly marvelous device. Yesterday morning, while I was in church, someone attempted to steal my 2000 Audi A6, again. Fortunately, they didn't do much besides damaging the ignition assembly and door lock. Right now, the car is in the shop getting repaired, well actually waiting for the appraiser to show up and verify the damage. No matter what happens, I'll scream from the mountain tops, RAVELCO RULES!!!"
Andre Pires, Kearney, New Jersey

“I bought my Toyota 4Runner on a Friday, the following Monday I had my Ravelco system installed, and then Wednesday my car was broken into. Luckily they could only take the three dollars in the ashtray, since they could not take the car. I will take that trade off any day.”
Mark Crawford, Bronx, New York

"Approximately 4 months ago, we contacted your company and purchased only 4 of your Ravelco Antitheft Systems for our Kenworth trucks. When they arrived the owner looked at them and said for us to to install and test them on the older trucks only, because to be honest with you, they didn’t look like much in the box. Boy, were we surprised! After following your installation instructions our own shop mechanic couldn’t start the Kenworth truck. When our owner saw this, we immediately ordered 54 more Ravelcos. I know this letter is short and sweet, but I just wanted to say thanks for keeping our trucks safe and to give us the comfort of knowing our trucks will be there exactly where we parked them."
Tommy C., Kansas City, Missouri

"The only real protection that appears to be working is by stopping the vehicle theft itself with some sort of ignition, fuel and starter cut off device. The better of these devices, have all its connections made in the engine compartment and have its wires camouflaged. A thief will not take the time to open up the hood of a vehicle and start searching for circuits. These antitheft devices are unlike alarm systems which are connected only under the dash, and are very easy for thieves to disarm."
Houston Chronicle Article

"Ten years and 241,000 miles and no further theft or vandalism with the Ravelco system! I truly think that when a would-be thief sees the Ravelco warning sticker on the windows, he will just go on to the next vehicle. We had more than six attempts to steal our Suburban, but since we had the Ravelco installed, we have not even had one attempt. Thank you for your antitheft device."
Raymond Witt, District Manager, Alliance for Affordable Health Care

"During the ten years that our company has been using the Ravelco security system for our vehicles, I am delighted to be able to report that never have we had a vehicle stolen. We've had several attempts in the City of Houston. I can honestly say that you have saved us thousands in potential losses of vehicles and product plus time and aggravation. Your security device has been so reliable and successful in our vending trucks that we have installed them on our entire fleet."
James Knecht, ACCENT FOOD SERVICES Inc., Houston, Texas

“I want to thank you for saving my car and most of all…my life! Six days ago, I went to a local mall to get a birthday gift for my nephew, who was having a party at a pizza place nearby. When I came out of the mall I felt someone following me, and that made me nervous. I did not want to turn around and confront them because I was hoping that it was just someone going to the parking lot to get in their car like I was. I don’t know why I did what I did, but I had a bad feeling and I reached into my purse and pushed the button on the keychain that separates the Ravelco plug from my keys. As I was getting in my car a great big man who had what looked like a pipe in his hand pushed me across the front seat, got behind the wheel and told me to give him my keys. I handed him my keys without the Ravelco plug attached and he immediately tried to start the car. Of course without the Ravelco plug it would not start, but he kept trying. He yelled, “What’s wrong?!” I told him this has been happening lately. He immediately got out of my car and ran. He must have been a real idiot to think I had a dead battery because my car is a brand new white Lincoln Town Car and it still had the temporary paper tags on it. The policeman who was called to the scene said, if it wasn’t for my Ravelco system I might have ended up in a ditch somewhere! I am pretty proud of myself and wanted to share my story with you.”

"You may remember me, you may not, but you are now my favorite person in the world! A few years ago, you came to our home and installed the Ravelco device in our son's 2000 Jeep Cherokee, which had been stolen a few months earlier. I decided to go with the Ravelco following a few long conversations during which I grilled you about every conceivable possibility of thieves bypassing this device. You also installed the Ravelco a year or so later, in a marathon session, in my 2004 Durango and my husband's 1995 Tahoe. I have since recommended you and your little gadget to just about everyone I know. Well, last night or early this morning, before the snow started, someone apparently tried to steal our son's Jeep again. We didn't notice until the snow stopped and we went to move the Jeep so that we could clear the driveway. Well, they popped the door lock to get in and popped the ignition, but didn't get the Jeep! They took some items from inside, my son's college textbooks and such, which I doubt they'll be using, but that was it. I will now freely admit to still being skeptical about the Ravelco, in spite of your assurances, prior to today. I am now a true believer. So thank you for your patience throughout our initial conversations, and thank you for standing behind this product 100%. You have saved us the hassle of trying to recover a stolen car, which if you've been through once, it's enough. This was probably the smartest purchase I have ever made, and I will gladly continue to recommend you and Ravelco to anyone who asks. With sincere thanks"

"I drive or I drove the baddest SUV made, a 3 month old Black, 2004 Cadillac Escalade. I had wheel spinners that cost nearly six grand and a stereo system to die for. Someone else must have also thought that and decided to take it. It was stolen on September 4, 2004. The police found my vehicle four days later in San Ysidro, California. It was missing the tires & wheels and the subwoofers. OnStar couldn't locate it and the transponder key security system was bypassed. When I got it back, I felt like it was violated and I sold it. Three weeks ago, I bought another one in Arizona and I had your Ravelco system installed. Now the reason of my letter! On Thursday night, October 14th, they tried to steal it again at a seafood restaurant in Los Angeles. They broke in, busted the steering column and failed. Your Ravelco saved my Escalade!!! Thank you so much!!!"
Butch Jennings, Cypress, California

"I was told by my salesman where I bought my Ford Expedition, that since it came from the factory with the SecuriLock Antitheft System, I did not need any additional security on my vehicle. On a recent trip to Mexico, we spent our first night at a motel in McAllen, Texas. I parked my Expedition directly outside the door to our room. In the middle of the night I heard the Expedition start. I ran out as the thief was backing out. I must have frightened him, because when he got across the street he abandoned the vehicle and ran. The police officer who came to take a report informed me of your product. The very next morning at a local Lincoln Mercury Dealer, I had the steering column repaired and your Ravelco Antitheft Device installed. Two days later in Acapulco, Mexico it happened again. This time your Ravelco stopped them from stealing my vehicle! I am glad I took the police officer’s advice and had the Ravelco installed! Thank you so much for saving my vehicle."
Hugh Bishop, Dallas, Texas

"I have a 2007 Ford F-350 with a leveling kit, rock star wheels and 35x12.50 BFG mud terrain tires. My truck was almost stolen at my apartment in San Diego but luckily I caught the guy. After that I did some research on alarm systems and other antitheft devices when I came across your website. I immediately called and had your system installed. Just last week I woke up on Saturday morning opened my truck up and my key would not fit into the ignition, sure enough the lock and the ignition had been tampered with. The car thief was unable to start my truck, I guess he got discouraged and left. The only thing that was missing is my GPS system which is only worth $200, but they didn’t get my truck. I plugged the Ravelco system back in and the truck fired right up and I didn’t even have to use my key. For now the Ravelco system is my key. Thank you very much and I would and have been recommending the Ravelco system to everyone I know."
Kevin Kruyshoop, San Diego, California

"In January, professional car thieves attempted to steal my 2000 Acura Integra on a very busy Saturday afternoon at a very nice shopping mall. The car was parked in the garage about 30 feet from one of the main entrances. Security guards on bikes patrol this garage. From an anti-theft standpoint, I was told that the 2000s have a chip in the key; therefore I cannot walk into a hardware store and have extra keys made for the car. The car does not have a remote lock/unlock feature. The detective said the theft attempt was by professionals who would have known how to hot-wire the car and that a shopper most likely scared them off. Another 15 seconds and the car would have been gone. I dove into a research effort to see how to protect the car in the future. The internet offered devices to thwart every anti-theft gadget or system that I found. Equipment existed to bypass every factory-installed anti-theft system. This equipment could be ordered by make, model, and year of the vehicle. There are even ways to now thwart the auto tracking systems. A county police officer told me if I wanted to protect an Acura Integra, the only way to do it was to keep it locked in a garage 24 hours a day. Then I found the Ravelco. It had a sterling 28-year history, had never been bypassed, and nothing existed on the internet to thwart it. I even called the largest Chevy dealer in the country when I read that they had been installing the device for 23 years. They swear by it, as does their local law enforcement. By the end of January, Chuck Whigham had installed the Ravelco on my car. In August, professional thieves tried to steal the car again, this time twenty feet from my front door. There were no shoppers to scare them away. The car would not budge because of the Ravelco. It was like having my car's engine locked in the house. The thieves gave up and left the car sitting where they found it. The Ravelco has been worth its weight in gold to me.”
Donna Berriman, Falls Church, Virginia
