Tools are frequently stolen from job sites, vans and construction sites.

Criminals view items marked with SelectaDNA as too high risk and are further put off from stealing them as they have little or no resale value. Using SelectaDNA to mark your property is the ultimate theft and burglary deterrent.
“As a tradesman I wanted extra piece of mind about the security of my tools. I wanted something easy to apply and that police know how to trace back if they ever got stolen. I contacted SelectaDNA who invited me in to demonstrate the product.
I found their knowledge of the wide range of products offered to suit all applications, extremely vast and comprehensive and would fully recommend their services.
I bought the tool marking kit and found the variety of stickers great to fit various sizes of my gear. The DNA solution was easy to apply and dried well. It's barely noticeable on my dusty gear but after 3 weeks of abuse I've checked with the supplied UV light and it still glows brightly.
I was on a site last week where we all have to charge batteries in the same place. We had a potential thief wander in looking at all the chargers. When he picked mine up he didn't even think twice. He put it straight down. After mine he then started looking more closely at the others for markings I presume. The site CCTV Operator called security and he was chased off site. I really think it made him think twice!”
