Archived: MOBILESPIKE: Automated tire-spiking system for law enforcers – We help police officers end high speed pursuits from the safety of their vehicle

iCrowdNewswire - Sep 20, 2016


Automated tire-spiking system for law enforcers.

We help police officers end high speed pursuits from the safety of their vehicle. With a push of a button, a spiked strip shoots out and pops the fleeing car’s tires instantly. Before, officers had to manually place spike strips along the road, putting them directly in danger. This tech hasn’t been innovated since 1972, and now, nearly 12,000 people have died due to high speed chases. We’re the first solution that lets officers deescalate a potentially fatal car chase with the push of a button.

We founded MobileSpike to save lives. Nearly everyday, someone dies from a high speed pursuit and nearly 50% of the time, it’s an innocent bystander. For the past four years, we’ve done extensive testing with the police community, and already, law enforcement agencies in 22 states are waiting to put our devices on their vehicles. Our end goal is to put MobileSpike on the fender of every single police car in the nation and prevent further deaths.


I saw it, and I love it! MobileSpike lets one officer shut down a chase without putting his safety at risk at the side of the road with a hand-thrown spike strip. [This is] an opportunity for you and me to own a piece of this company, one that makes money, stops criminals, and keeps police safe.

Until now, we’ve been between a rock and a hard place. This will help alleviate that so we can do out duty without putting the public in extra danger.

Nearly Every Day, Someone Dies in a High Speed Pursuit

High speed police chases have killed thousands of innocent bystanders.
Victims include small children, teenage drivers and the elderly.

We founded MobileSpike to address a real problem: over 11,000 people have lost their lives to high speed pursuits and almost half of them have been innocent civilians. MobileSpike gives officers the first real answer to controlling and quickly deescalating a potentially fatal car chase.

We’re the Answer to High Speed Chases

We’ve built the first automated tire-spiking system that allows law enforcers to stop high speed pursuits from the safety of their vehicle. Our system has been field-tested all over the United States, from the swamps of Florida to the rainy streets of Seattle. 100% of officers who’ve tested the MobileSpike system agree its safer and faster than any other alternative.


And for those worried about tire blowout, our double-patented system uses hollow quills to puncture tires, which allows for slow, controlled deflation over 50-60 seconds. In all our years of testing, MobileSpike has never once caused a blowout.

The First New Solution Since 1972

The manual spike strips—where officers must get out of their car to throw the net of spikes across the road—was patented in 1972. It’s antiquated, dangerous and unpredictable. We’re the only solution that keeps officers in their vehicle and in control of the situation.


I can be driving, pull up alongside the suspect vehicle, press a button, it shoots out,
the vehicle runs over it and we stop the pursuit within a few minutes.

We Have Customers Already Waiting

We conducted a four year field test across the U.S., from Florida to Alaska. 100% of the field trial agencies became customers and 90% of them have reordered in 2010. We’re now preparing to scale our manufacturing and deliver units to waiting customers.


Our Next Steps

We built the first MobileSpike system back in 2008, and our long-term product reliability and effectiveness tests prove MobileSpike thrives in all road and weather conditions. MobileSpike is a proven technology, and we have happy customers from coast to coast. Adjusting to the needs of our customers, our next steps are to finish developing Gen 2 and fulfill orders.

The reason I’m a shareholder in MobileSpike is, first, because of the profit margins. I’m a numbers guy. The next thing I look at is the business model, MobileSpike has their field tests and have proved they have proof-of-concept and a place in the market. The other thing I look at is how good is the product? Does it have a competitive edge? Next, I look for integrity, more integrity and more integrity. MobileSpike has all of the above.

Let’s Build Safer Law Enforcement

Who among us hasn’t seen a high-speed chase play out across our television and device screens? We’ve all seen it, over and over again. Five television shows have been based on police chases, and nothing but police chases. To us, this spells opportunity.

For the company that solves the dangerous problem of high speed pursuits, a fortune awaits. And MobileSpike is that solution.

So as an investor, ask yourself what you could stand to gain by owning stock in the company that finally solved the problem of dangerous chases.

Over the years, MobileSpike Inc. has perfected the fastest and safest chase stopping system in the world. With years of work and milestones behind us, with all the chases we have stopped, with all the tragedy we have averted, we now offer you an opportunity to profit from the final stages of this fantastic company.

As co-founder and CEO, my chief goal moving forward is this: to build share value for investors and founders, and to sell the company with the highest possible return on investment for our shareholders.

Thank You.
