The “Grappler” is a new device to stop cars during police pursuits.

In an attempt to reduce the chance of injury or death during car chases, a company called Grappler Police Bumpers has invented a unique pursuit termination device that quickly and safely brings a car chase to a controlled stop. The Grappler launches a tether from the police car’s front bumper, which snags the criminal’s rear wheels, preventing the axle from turning, and resulting in a surprisingly controlled stop. A clever invention that could help police bring a swift end to high-speed ...  View More
