Stinger Spike Systems can be quickly readied for re-use by simply replacing the pulled spikes. Each unit is supplied with replacement spikes, safety guards, and an insertion tool.
Stinger Spike Systems
Stinger Spike System allows law enforcement officers to control situations by stopping fleeing vehicles effectively, reliably, and safely. The Stinger Spike System employs high strength, hollow steel spikes that penetrate all types of tires – including self-sealing and run-flats – and deflate them in a regulated manner. This prevents blowouts, slows the perpetrator’s vehicle to a safer rate of speed, and allows for a controlled stop. Stinger Spike Systems are effective on all vehicles including cars, trucks, and buses.
Safe and Easy to Use
The Stinger Spike System 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. After spiking, a simple yank on the handle quickly retracts the unit, clearing the road for pursuit vehicles and other traffic.
Standard Stinger Spike Systems are available in three different lengths to handle a variety of situations. The 10-foot Metro model is perfect for narrower urban streets and small country roads. The 15.5-foot Trooper model is wide enough for multi-lane roads and the 25-foot Defender model covers applications such as interstate highways, airport entry gates, military compounds, and security checkpoints.
The Stinger XL models employ a longer spike length designed for penetrating thicker tires to safely and quickly end pursuits involving large trucks, farm equipment, and military-type vehicles. The Stinger XL models are available in all three lengths.
