The STINGER device is designed for quick, reliable operation. A simple pull on the handle or a toss is all it takes to position the spikes. The single, accordion-action element deploys almost instantly, giving officers time to take cover. Extra-width road coverage and low visibility minimize avoidance by fleeing suspects. And, after spiking, a simple yank on the handle quickly retracts the unit, clearing the road for pursuit vehicles and other traffic.
