This video will give you some tips on how to install the leaper ornament on the Jaguar X-type hood and which is more important, how to do it in a vandal-proof manner. It’s my own invention, my life hack and I am glad to share it to other Jaguar drivers, because they often feel uneasy leaving their car at poorly lit or unguarded sites. At least, no curious idler will ever go on pulling on the leaper, when the car alarm system is blaring and flashing.

My story includes both wiring diagrams and hardware implementation of my invention. Of course, you can use other parts or maybe your Jaguar is not an X-type as mine, but I tried to give you a general concept of how the leaper logo can be mounted (or could have been mounted OEM).

I have carefully watched your video and have just installed the alarm circuit. My leaper has a looped steel band held under tension by a spring. The end of the steel band is crimped with a cylindrical crimp. I made up similar contacts to yours and the result is amazing. Thanks for the idea and the electrical circuit details. A great anti- theft device!
