Anti-Theft Device Prototype

Was in a pinch and had to run into Home Depot on the way to a job. Shame on me for not hiding/locking/removing it, but got my Dewalt 12" miter saw stolen out of the back of my pickup.

Solution: Imagine a giant rat trap, only its made for the bed of your pickup. Spring loaded steel device that looks like a lumbar rack standing upright next to the rear glass of the truck. Put your cheese...sorry tools...on strings connected to a trigger. When the thief pulls the tool, the steel comes down on their body and sends their meth infused flesh everywhere.

Should I take this to Shark Tank?

"People who steal should be beaten to death with whatever object they stealith. And if a man stealith your wife, pray for him. He will soon suffer a punishment worse than death." -Thomas Jefferson
