Protect Your Vehicle with Smash and Grab

There are countless occurrences where people fall victim to a smash and grab crime somewhere on the road. You are stopped at a traffic light waiting for it to turn green and suddenly your passenger window shatters and glass goes flying everywhere. You are stunned by the noise and your eyes are probably closed because you don’t want to get glass in them.

While all of that is happening, a smash and grab thief is dipping their hands into your car and politely relieving you of all your possessions that have been left on the seat. By the time you have figured out what has just happened, they have already made off with your belongings and you are stuck with a broken window and shattered nerves. It may be common sense to some people to keep personal belongings out of reach for would-be thieves but everyone forgets once in a while and that is when these degenerates tend to strike the most.

The same thing happens when you park your car out in the open and you accidently leave a bag, cellphone or wallet in the car. A thief would wait for the perfect opportunity to break the glass while no one is looking, so they can help themselves to whatever it is that you have left for them. The only way to effectively deter them would be to secure the glass with safety film.

Safety Film That Acts as a Deterrent for Thieves

Safety film offered by Electronic Fitment Centre is an effective way to deter thieves from breaking into your vehicle because they can see that there is a film covering the glass, making it more difficult to break through it. The film is made from a highly specialised plastic that is extremely hard to tear or break; so even if you through a big rock at the window it will stay intact and the glass will be kept in a single piece even though it has shattered behind the film. That means that even if you leave it parked in a car park, it will still take them a fair amount of time to get into your vehicle and they won’t be able to get away without attracting too much attention.

In most instances you will be given the option of a window tinting so that you can actually see the smash and grab layer on the windows. The darkest you can go is 35% in most cases because it is actually governed by law, but it is still more than enough to keep your windows dark and make the thieves aware that it is there. Once they see that there is a safety film over the glass, there is a good chance that they won’t try to break in.
