Do you know what this big yellow windshield plastic is used for?

The automotive scene welcomes an American invention with a smile: the “Barnacle”. Designed to immobilize cars, this nifty device quickly attaches to the windshield, obscuring the driver’s view. Lightweight and easy to transport, it offers a practical alternative to traditional methods.

Perfect for immobilizing a vehicle…

The automotive world, always in search of innovation, welcomes with a certain brilliance a new invention straight from the United States: the “Barnacle”. This device emerges as an ingenious solution, attractive for its simplicity and its versatile applications.
Originally designed as an automobile immobilizer tool intended to facilitate the work of law enforcement, the Barnacle stands out as an innovative alternative to traditional clogs. Its basic operating mode allows police officers to quickly deploy it on the front windshield of the offending vehicle. With its two suction cups, this device adheres robustly to the window, completely obscuring the driver’s vision and rendering the vehicle temporarily unusable.
Its lightness and ease of transport make it a practical substitute for conventional methods. Once installed, the driver finds himself forced to pay the fine to obtain the precious secret code allowing the suction cups to be released and the Barnacle to be removed. After removal, the driver must deposit the device in one of the collection points provided for this purpose, in the form of containers with a special slot.

…and keep thieves away

Beyond its primary use, the Barnacle also attracts attention as a device anti-theft. Drivers can choose to leave it in place when parking on the street, knowing that it can only be removed with the appropriate passcode.
The strength of the Barnacle lies in its simplicity and robust mechanism. Adhering securely to the windshield, it becomes virtually impossible to move, while its suction cups are cleverly protected by a durable plastic coating. Under the evocative name “Barnacle”, this device is already available on various markets, thus opening the way to new perspectives both in the police field and in theft prevention.

An invention to observe closely, carrying the “revolutionary” potential that could mark the automotive sector.
