When it comes to police pursuits, they can get mighty dangerous and out of hand. Every day, there are companies who are shooting to come up with something that will make the action just a little bit safer and this time, we check out a newscast that has brought something rather interesting to the forefront.

This invention is really unlike anything we’ve ever seen before but whether it will actually work or not is something that we will let you decide on your own. All that we have to say here is that these demonstrations of the product are rather compelling.

The “Grappler” is a device that is used to nix the need for a pit maneuver. The basic premise of the machine is that it extends from the front of a police cruiser to be slid under a back tire and lock that tire up. We have to say that it looks like it would be effective based on the video demonstration.

Take a look at the machine and how it works for yourself and tell us if this is something that you could ever see being put to use in the police force today. If it works as promised, this type of machine could be used in car chases to save police lives and the lives of bystanders alike!
