It may look cool in a film to steal some’s car with some magic tricks and a wire, but in reality it’s costly damage that’s a nightmare for the vehicle owner.

Taylor reckons, “It’s solved all my problems, so I can sleep easy.” After the success of his invention, Taylor has patented this design. Anyone who wishes to use this system must pay him £380, period. This is what we call when one door is stolen, another shocking door opens.

Tyler further ensures the safety of the system, stating: “The shock isn’t going to do any lasting damage, but it will make you jump a bit.Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
