ImmobiTag contains a chip with a unique code that can be read by a suitable scanner (typically used by police and responsible second-hand traders). A search for the code against police or trader systems enables the return of property to its rightful owner.
- FREE lifetime registration at Immobilise.com
- If you sell the tagged item, the new owner doesn't need to buy a new tag. Just tell them the tag number and to register at Immobilise.com, then remove the tag number from your account.
- The tiny chip can be glued (glue not supplied) anywhere you wish on the protected item and does not need to be visible.
- The warning sticker provided deters theft by making it clear that a covert marking solution is in use that can identify the owner even when the warning label is removed.
- The Radio Frequency ID tag (no batteries required).
- Fitting instructions
- A label containing the chip's ID – you must register this on Immobilise.com but it does not need to be added to the item.
- A warning label also containing a barcode – you must register this on your Immobilise account and we recommend fitting it to the item or to a nearby location to act as a deterrent.
- Use with any strong adhesive (not supplied).
- This product is NOT a GPS tracking device. It is a covert marking device making the bike, if found, uniquely identifiable.
- The RFID chip used is a high-quality TROVAN manufactured chip. It is not reprogrammable and adheres to the highest standards of production, ensuring lifelong performance and readability in the most demanding environments. It has been proven evidentially robust in many investigations for over 20 years.
I have had several of these devices. Easily hidden in the bike frame, embedded in a blob of adhesive (I use a two-part epoxy adhesive). Fortunately I have never had to use the tag, but it is comforting to know that it is there.
Well, it is very small and fairly easy to fit (glue) inside the frame. However, its an item that you hope you never have to use. Hopefully the label supplied with the chip will deter would-be thieves.
The rfid tag is about 10mm long and 2mm wide. It was really easy to add a blob of superglue and push/throw it through one of the water bottle bolt holes into my carbon frame. I heard it land. Shook the bike a bit but heard no rattling - which is good as it could potentially drop into the bottom bracket. After an hour picked the bike up and all is good. Only a couple of issues. 1 I have no idea if it works. 2 there are 2 different I’d codes on stickers in the pack. It’s not entirely clear which one is the actual Id.
Maybe I’ll drop by the local vet and see if they can pick it up on their pet scan !
