there are many security systems to try to stop delinquents and undesirables, until the police arrive. But most require physical contact, which is always dangerous. Cerberus it’s a people immobilizer Developed in Japan that allows neutralizing the threat without exposing yourself to danger.
Japan is one of the countries with the lowest crime rate in the world. But still there is muggings, assaultsor simply drugged people or rubbersthey get violent.
In these cases, the logical thing to do is call the police, but until they arrive there are a few tense minutes of waiting where anything can happen.
There are many gadgets and devices to try restrain an assailant: irritating sprays, shock guns or guns that shoot cables that wrap around the body, etc. But most demand to approach the aggressor and hold him, so that he does not get up off the ground. And that can be dangerous.
Cerberus, the people immobilizer
The Japanese security company Sano has devised a people immobilizer called Cerberuswhose main contribution is that a person can be paralyzed without approaching her.
It is immobilizer It is a metal bar about a meter and a half long, at the end of which is an open gallows, and a neoprene tape with metal hooks They close automatically, when the tape separates.
The idea is that move the tape closer to the attackerwhich will automatically close around the attacker’s body, thanks to the powerful metal hooks. Neoprene is a very hard material, and the hooks and velcro that hold the tape are very resistant. It cannot be released by force, as can be seen in the video opening of the news.
To be effective, the manufacturer recommends using two Cerberus. one to the bodyand other to the legs.
Actually, as we can see in the video, there are several different models. One throws the tape at a distance, another has a rope to attach to the leg, pull it, and take down raider. And a third, smaller variant, to remove the possible knife or weapon from the attacker’s hand.
Cerberushe people immobilizeris already being used successfully in bars and nightclubs (alcoholism is a problem in Japan), private companies, jewelry stores, banks, local police, and even temples.
