Police Approved: Secured by Design.

Stealing a car should not be that easy! Disklabs has the key to successful prevention

Tamworth United Kingdom. 6th March 2018: Developed to prevent ‘relay theft’, Disklabs Keyshield is the first RF blocking product to gain the Secured by Design ‘Police Preferred Specification’ accreditation.

Stealing a car should not be easy, but as recent video footage has shown, for cars fitted with keyless entry systems this is not necessarily the case. Luckily prevention is fairly straightforward with the Disklabs Keyshield.

‘Relay Theft’ is a technique adopted by criminals of using a receiver to pick up the signal from a key (which we all typically leave near the front door) and relay this signal back to a second unit adjacent to the vehicle, tricking it into thinking the key is being held next to it. The vehicle can then be opened and driven away.

Simon Steggles, Founder of Disklabs said ‘None of us would knowingly leave our vehicle in an unsecure environment. However, for the owners of vehicles fitted with keyless entry systems a private driveway or carpark may be just such an environment. There has been a recent spate of publicity about criminals using sophisticated technology to enable a car to be stolen from almost any location using a technique called ‘relay theft’. The Disklabs Keyshield was developed as a simple and effective way to prevent this. Following development of this new product we are delighted it has now been accredited with ‘Police Preferred Specification’ by SBD.

Features of the Keyshield:

  • Blocks all RF wireless signals
  • Easy to use
  • Independently tested
  • Functional and stylish design
  • Two Sizes available
  • Uses military grade waterproof resistant material
  • Accredited SBD ‘Police Preferred Specification’
