This is the Grappler Police Bumper, a vehicle arresting device that de-escalates high-speed pursuits. Developed by a law enforcement supporter, Leonard Stock and manufactured in the Phoenix, Arizona area, the powerful contraption has a yellow nylon net that traps a fleeing suspect with a “tethered snag maneuver” and brings the vehicle to a prompt, controlled stop.
It’s grappling to see the Grappler Police Bumper in action. In just a few seconds, the immobilization device is released and immediately comes into contact with the tire. Then it wraps around the axle allowing law enforcement to bring the vehicle to a halt and capture the criminal.

Disguised with a “bull bar” on the front of the vehicle, Grappler allows SWAT teams to utilize the device on unmarked units for maximum concealment. Also, the Grappler’s system reload takes less than five minutes. Overall, this criminal-capturing contraption is ideal for various tactical operations executed by undercover officers.
