This vehicle security device has been around for some time and was mainly aimed at the US market. However, this type of product has become more relevant to the UK in recent times, as specific vehicles have become targeted by thieves.
Clifford BlackJax is ideal for most vehicles but is particularly useful for non-CANBus and semi-CANBus Cars. It works by putting in a number code via a 2-button keypad each time the car is to be driven. Customers push one button to perform as a menu selector, and the second button is pushed continually to enter that number, repeated until the entire code is entered.
Should somebody attempt to drive the vehicle without the pin code, the vehicle will start normally and allow it to be driven a safe distance away. Clifford BlackJax then begins to activate the immobiliser, gently slowing the car until a full stop is achieved. At the same time the indicators will flash and the siren sounds. The vehicle cannot be restarted, the siren and flashes continue and can only be stopped by inputting the correct pin code. This system is designed to encourage the thief to 'run away' and hence allow the car to be recovered.
The Clifford BlackJax system can be installed as a stand alone product, or can be installed at the same time as a suitable Clifford or Viper alarm.
This system also benefits from being a product that does not require an ongoing subscription.
Customers should be aware that the BlackJax is not Thatcham Approved and is unlikely to benefit from insurance discounts. In most cases Insurance companies will either ask for a Category 1 vehicle alarm or a Thatcham Approved tracking system.
