I've never had a TP sender stolen in 9 years of use but I've had to replace 8 of them as they just stopped working. I have never seen a low battery warning light on the display, they just stopped sending. I've also discovered the pressure pro senders will stop sending if the battery is low and the temperture is on the low side. I wish Pressure Pro would develop senders with replaceable batteries.

I don't secure mine. Removed the security collars. Makes them smaller to clear wheel cover openings and easier to remove to adjust air pressure.

Ni, I don't worry about them walking off. Have had them for several years.

I have a tire minder system. I don't use the set screws and have never had a sensor stolen nor do I worry about it. They stay on my rig year round and in two years have only had to replace a few batteries which are free by the way and arrived in just a few days after I ordered them along with new O-rings. The system works as intended and I haven't had a single issue.

no TPMS theft in 5 years

Our Tire Minder TPMS sensors just unscrew so they'd be easy to steal... but ours haven't been touched in 5 years, probably because each TPMS model uses a specific transmission frequency & pairing with the TPMS controller... so unless they had the same model Tire Minder as we do the sensors would be useless.

That said our Tire Minder TPMS sensor batteries typically last 6 to 9 months before needing replacing. More of an annoyance since Tire Minder sends free replacement TPMS batteries when you ship your old batteries back via USPS. This would leave us without TPMS while each battery swap was in process so we simply bought a set of 10 lithium "watch" batteries off eBay for CHEAP and keep them in our RV for WHEN (not IF) one of our batteries go bad... and when they do we replace ALL 10 at once which results in having a completely fresh set of 10 batteries in our RV at all times.

I worried about theft too when I first made the investment, but I have never had an issue. I also leave 4 sensors on my Jeep toad and drive it all over everywhere and, knock on wood, haven't had any issues.

I do remove the sensors when I'm getting the Jeep tires rotated so that I can put them back in the correct location (right, left, front, rear) to line up with the TST display. That was the initial reason for removing the security collars in the first place--just too much of a PITA to remove and replace them with that special tool.
