The Vintage Association extends its sincere appreciation to Muintir na Tire and Synergy Security for providing the Property Branding service on the event day.

Having detailed information such as Make, Model, and Serial number is a fundamental aspect of home and yard security. These details play a crucial role in recovery, restoration, successful prosecutions, and deterrence against theft.

Encouraging Property Logging is a valuable crime prevention initiative and helps raise community awareness. Both An Garda Siochana and Community Alert advise keeping records of serial numbers and branding multiple parts of valuable items.

The complimentary branding project was introduced to Ireland in February 2016, initiated by three Muintir na Tire Community Councils in Ballydehob, Schull, and Goleen covering the Mizen area of West Cork. Volunteers in these communities were trained to mark valuable items.

Muintir na Tire emphasizes the importance of safeguarding valuable items by avoiding the disclosure of EirCode locations, which could pose a potential risk. Instead, it is recommended to use one’s driver’s license number (4D) as the brand. This unique number remains with individuals for life and allows quick access to contact details by law enforcement, ensuring security without compromising personal information.

The computer-generated Lazer Brand, generously provided by Synergy, Ireland’s premier security company, is capable of branding various items such as smartphones, computers, cameras, power tools, and batteries without causing damage like the old-fashioned dot peen hammer impact machine.
