They go to plug in, find no port and waste their time looking for it.

It may slow them down enough to make them move on though.

Its crazy that all the security measures in place, and simple cracks can cause the car to be vulnerable. We should have the likes of smart systems - if the car detects ANY improper interference (drilling through the body when locked) then ALL brakes should lock up and seize - preventing the car from rolling. Also, all cars should have an alarm system IMHO which should be setoff in any event of interference. Short of lifting the car up, they wont get too far!

If people are that worried there is a cheaper way , using a double pole switch , simply splice into pin 6 and 14 , and make an open circuit and switch to close if you need to take it for a check up , that way the clever thieves won't have a clue why they can't connect to the OBD port.
2.50 for a switch , pretty sure that's cheaper than that device , and why would anyone in their right mind put those stickers on their dash.Just my opinion
it won't stop them pushing your car off the drive like in the Fiesta case , but it's a little extra security, against the Smart ! criminals
What do pin 6 and 14 do?
Could you not just splice into one wire?
