Gadget Review – It looks like a bike rack,but this weird gadget can stop a criminal car chase without any mess
There are times when a suspect vehicle pursuit finishes catastrophically. Whether it is the cost of damaged property, civilian injuries, or the legal expenses as a consequence of a tragic crash, vehicle pursuits, therefore, always have repercussions.
However, there’s a superior way to end such chaotic chases without compromising the safety of the pursuing officers.
This is the grappler, and it’s quite reminiscent of the cowboys’ lassos, but this device is, instead, used on a car.
Once it is mounted on the front of a police vehicle, the grappler can disable, with just a click of a button, moving cars by entangling its yellow net to the rear wheel of a vehicle. It can efficiently bring the chase to a clean end with little risk of injury to either party.
The grappler does not need the police officers to move to the side of the criminal’s vehicle and execute a PIT maneuver, which makes the pursued car spin perpendicular to the officer’s vehicle, eventually bringing it to a stop. With the grappler, all police have to do is drive up into the back of the fleeing car with the center of the police car aligned with the rear wheel of the criminal’s vehicle.
Then, the large yellow net that hangs between two extending posts immediately locks itself to the tire, and it wraps around the axle, which causes the wheel to come to a sudden halt.
The grappler is an intelligent gadget for tactical operations because there’s a high probability that a criminal won’t suspect such a mechanism, for it could easily be mistaken as a bicycle rack or just a vehicle aesthetic, like a horn perhaps.
