If you've ever had to park your truck in a rough neigborhood, you know the uncomfortable feeling that somebody might mess with it while you're gone. Coming back and finding smashed glass all over the seats and your stereo torn out is simply gut-wrenching. And, even with the best alarm system there is, it's tough to stop these quick smash-and-grab attacks.
Fortunately for us, 3M has come up with a clever solution that will leave would-be thieves scrambling. The new Scotchshield Automotive Security Film holds glass in place even when it's completely shattered, and provides another layer of protection from break-ins. In fact, the film turns a 3-second crime into one that takes nearly a full minute. 3M even filmed a demonstration, so you can see for yourself:
As you can see, the 3M film provides a serious roadblock for thieves, and even if they're persistent enough to keep trying, it gives you time to go out and greet them (preferably with a 12-gauge). 3M also offers it in a variety of tints, so you can add both privacy and security. Pretty cool stuff if you ask us.
