How can I protect my car stereo from theft?

I'm about to buy a new stereo for my car, and it's pretty expensive. I don't live in a bad area, but people's cars do get broken into every once in a while. What’s the best way to prevent thieves from stealing your sound system?

It’s smart that you’re thinking ahead about how to protect your car stereo from theft! Here are some tips:
  • Install an anti-theft device in your vehicle
  • Check the doors and windows before getting out of your car
  • If you can, park in a safe location
  • Get your windows tinted so thieves can’t see inside
  • Get a stereo with a removable face
  • Don’t put brand-name stickers or hood ornaments on your car
  • Keep your amps and subwoofers in the trunk
If you’re worried, you can also purchase certain insurance policies that will protect you in the event of theft. If you’d like to do that, check out the Jerry app!
