Spare Shield Protects Spare Tires

Exhibiting at next week’s Auto Rental Summit, Spare Shield offers technology to protect a vehicle’s spare tire and rim.

A thief can cut the cable or chain that attaches your spare tire to your vehicle. Spare Shield can protect the vehicle’s spare tire undermount assembly without tools, chains or complicated installations, according to the company.

Spare Shield offers three security packages to help protect your SUV, pickup or van’s spare tire and rim from theft.

Inventor John Reidl came up with the idea after the spare tire was stolen off his new SUV. Four years after making the first Spare Shield and selling out of the garage to some local dealerships and a few major rental car companies, the company is ready to launch the product globally.
