    1st review

    This product was used by myself in two different occasions. In both cases each pursuit was terminated quickly and possibly saved lives of potential victims due to a police chase.

    I have used this product for the first time about a month ago and was very effective. It slowed the pursuit down from about 90 mph to about 30 mph just prior to the suspect vehicle going into a urban enviroment. This product is simply great I cant say enough about it.

    I love stop sticks, their isn't a better tool to use on a fleeing suspect, aside from a PIt/TVI maneuver. With proper training and knowledge, these are great tools for law enforcement.

    Works like a champ. It helps reduce the speed of vehicle pursuits. Don't leave home without it!
    "5 stars" Interaction would not allow.

    It is so fun when a 110 mph suspect slows to a crawl and their like "Well, what did I do?"

    We carried these in all out patrol units. What nice about the stop stick, is that they are rechargeable. Work great.

    The Stop Stick itself is a great tool. There are thousands of these Stop Sticks in all fifty states. BUT ....

    You have to be very careful in actually deploying these in the roadway or where ever. There have been numerous deaths throughout the United States attributed to fleeing suspects taking evasive action TOWARD the deploying officer. We had a officer nearby killed due to the bad guy taking out the officer who deployed the Stop Sticks.

    Be aware of your surroundings and have an escape route for yourself.

    As tire deflation devices go, this is the best one ever invented. I have successfully ended 9 pursuits with the stopsticks. They are simple to deploy and remove from the road for pursuit units.

    With a slow release everything is controlled by time and distance and not rushed causing injury or death to others..........

    We've had them for about 2 years, still haven't used one. I guess that's a good thing, maybe. =\

    when used properly there are a very effective tool. But if your department does not let you pursue you have no need for them

    Stop Sticks are easy to use, affordable, quick to deploy and effective in slowing down fleeing vehicles. In order to avoid possibly fatal injuries to your officers, it is VITAL to have effective training with Stop Sticks prior to deployment. They sell foam rubber SS to practice with. Safe deployment tactics are critical, such as having the officer on the opposite side of the road from the fleeing vehicle, using effective cover, etc. Stop Sticks are a great tool when used properly.

    Great product to stop a chase, or to stop the officer that is following too close to the car.

    Also good idea to not leave on the trunk lid and drive off. That happened to a friend of mine, both his FTO and him were inventoring the trunk and forgot it was on the trunk and drove off. The department had to purchase a number of tires for the poor folks that hit it. His nickname is "Spike" now.

    Much safer then the older version that had the bad habit of cutting the deploying officer.
