The Sherlock effect

A powerful theft deterrent

Proven effective

When it comes to reliable automotive security, the choice is elementary! According to an actuarial study, Sherlock Intensive Antitheft Marking® can slash theft rates over 80%. What’s more, Sherlock is the only company that maintains a detailed database available to Montreal Police Department (SPVM), St-Jérôme Police Department and the Agglomération de Longueuil Police Department patrol cars in real time, 24/7.

Sherlock is recommended by the Automobile Protection Association (APA)

Automobile Protection Association

A powerful theft deterrent

“For thieves like us, it’s real simple. We don’t touch a car marked by Sherlock.”

Deters the sale of stolen vehicles and parts

Marked in more than 52 places

Sherlock etches an identification code on the main parts of your vehicle to reduce its black market value. Would-be thieves or “chop shops” (who fence, or re-sell stolen goods) back off fast when they see vehicles and parts with Sherlock permanent marking.

Deters the sale of stolen vehicles and parts

“A car marked by Sherlock isn’t worth a cent to a thief like me. It’s not worth the risk.”

Identifies your vehicle

Allows police to accurately identify the real owners of stolen vehicles

Sherlock’s identification code enables police to trace the owners of recovered stolen vehicles. Sherlock marking is also a real boon for the legal system: it helps authorities determine where stolen parts are coming from, so they can be seized and the thieves prosecuted and brought to justice. This helps make Sherlock a powerful deterrent in the fight against automotive theft.
