LENGTH OF COVERAGE
Depending on the current age of your vehicle, SILENT SENTINEL can provide up to 5 years of protection.
LAW ENFORCEMENT COOPERATION
SILENT SENTINEL will continue to work with law enforcement agencies to gain their cooperation in supporting VIN etching and promoting awareness within our society that stealing vehicles with VIN etching will land thieves in jail.

FREE PROTECTION REPLACEMENT
SILENT SENTINEL assures you that the VIN etching will be re-applied free when you replace any previously etched vehicle part on your registered vehicle.

SAVINGS
Please check with your insurer as they may be in a position to reduce premiums since your vehicle is more than adequately protected against theft.

SENTINEL EFFICIENCY
