Why barnacle parking

A secure and efficient immobilization solution.

Barnacle Parking provides technologically advanced solutions to the parking industry. Our smart immobilization device, the Barnacle, empowers parking operators, business owners, corporate campuses, healthcare organizations and municipalities to redefine and enhance the immobilization experience for both enforcers and motorists while visibly driving compliance.

  • Safety

    Barnacle devices are lightweight and effortless to deploy while standing, eliminating the stress and strain of applying a traditional metal boot.

  • Ease of Use

    The Barnacle deploys in seconds and can be easily monitored via our Enforcer App.

  • Convenience for Motorists

    Paying a fine is consequence enough; there’s no need to keep drivers waiting, too. Motorists can make their payments online, then easily remove the Barnacle and return it to a nearby Drop Box.

  • Convenience for Operators

    Using Barnacle means less time spent deploying an immobilization device.

What Our Customers Are Saying

For us, the Barnacle device has checked all the boxes; it’s effective, it’s easy to use, and it’s a time saver. Along with being an outstanding parking enforcement device, the Barnacle also comes with an exceptional customer service staff.
James Faup Lead Parking Enforcement Agent, City of Columbia
Since Rochester Institute of Technology launched the Barnacle Parking Enforcement system, the University has been able to streamline its enforcement process and drive compliance in its many parking lots. The Barnacle is a great visual deterrent, often sparking social media buzz. The user-friendly App allows for easy deployment and the associated web application gives you a real time play-by-play status of the device. On top of all this great smart technology, the Barnacle backs up its product with an extremely dedicated service team who provide intelligent solutions to any problems. Quite simply, it’s a great solution that truly works.
John Connelly Parking Enforcement and Operations Manager, RIT
Deploying the Barnacle on vehicles is a quick and simple process that takes much less time and effort than a traditional vehicle boot. It is a much preferred way of immobilizing than the orange boots we used before it.
Aaron Truitt Parking Enforcement Officer, Town of Upper Darby
We love how visible the Barnacle is, our students are aware of it and it helps to drive compliance on campus.
Don “Fish” Vansandt University Operations Systems Manager, St. Edward’s University
The Barnacle is much easier to deploy than a conventional auto boot! It is so lightweight and so easy to get in and out of our enforcement vehicles! As a parking enforcement attendant, one of my biggest concerns is being aware of my surroundings. When deploying a heavy conventional auto boot, I find myself on the ground at the rear of a vehicle with very limited visibility. With the Barnacle, there is never a need to get on the ground! With the push of a few buttons, I am able to immobilize vehicles and remain vigilant of what is going on around me. The Barnacle has been a welcome addition to our operation.
Harrison Roberts Parking Enforcement Attendant, Texas Tech University
When we put a Barnacle on a vehicle, everyone sees it and it drives parking compliance. With Barnacle, we are improving our parking compliance and able to better collect from motorists with outstanding citations.
Jeff Lantz Parking Manager, City of Pompano Beach
It’s not often we get a product that goes such a long way towards improving the safety of our people in the field while at the same time enhancing payment and release flexibility for the parking patron.
Kevin McCormick Deputy Director, Department of Public Safety, Town of Hungtington
Barnacle was introduced to the City of Berwyn Police Department to increase efficiency as well as safety measures among our parking enforcement division. Immobilization has been used in Berwyn for many years and we figured that Barnacle could create a kinder experience with a motorist-release device for our constituents. Existing “traditional’ boots have been problematic to our city. Our department certainly has seen the benefits internally as our revenues have tripled since using this device to immobilize on scofflaw. Also, our Community Service Officers have felt safer during deployments and have better oversight of the devices with the Barnacle Software, GPS Tracking and Real-Time Alerts. Overall Barnacle has done nothing but put a positive light on immobilization among our community.
Sandro Scardamaglia Commander, City of Berwyn
Ever since we began using the Barnacle device in the fall of 2021, the processes of both immobilizing vehicles and managing devices from our office have improved significantly. With the Barnacle devices being synced with our computers and mobile devices we now have a modernized way to manage and track all updates regarding deployed devices.
Sekela Coles Director of Parking Enforcement, Town of Upper Darby
In my role as the Executive Director of the Reading Parking Authority, the employees at Barnacle have exceeded my expectations in the areas of problem solving and customer service. We have publicized the Barnacle as the “friendlier immobilization device". To work with the public, we use the Barnacle when an individual has 5-9 tickets. The Barnacle fee is $125 whereas the boot fee is $200. An important note is that more individuals have tried to drive off with the boot on their vehicles than with the Barnacle as it is securely attached on their vehicle’s windshield.
Thomas MacDougal Executive Parking Director, Reading Parking Authority
Prior to The Barnacle, we were using metal boots but they were hard to put on and dangerous for our enforcers. On top of that, motorists were frustrated because they could only pay during business hours to have the boot removed. In the last two years, we have collected over $225,000 since transitioning to The Barnacle.
Tom Malone Parking Operations Coordinator, West Palm Beach
Our Parking & Transportation department has been using the Barnacle just over a year. It’s lightweight, easy to maintain and store. Our Parking Enforcement loves the fact that this device can be deployed in under five minutes. It has certainly captured the attention of scofflaws and on lookers. The “Barnacle” enabled our department to recoup over $40,000 in outstanding parking citations!! So if you’re looking for a more effective & efficient immobilizing device look no further than the “Barnacle".
