Parking barnacles: What are they, how do they work and can you drive away with one? [Lancaster Watchdog]


Weighing about 20 pounds, the device attaches via suction cups to the driver side of a vehicle's windshield, effectively keeping the driver who committed the parking violation from leaving. A Barnacle attaches to a windshield with 1,000 pounds of force, according to Barnacle's website.

The Barnacle has instructions on it for motorists to pay the $50 removal fine and have police detach it from their vehicle.
