Simple & effective
SmartStop is a mechanical containment system for shopping trolleys. SmartStop makes sure that shopping trolleys
stay where they belong - on the car park.
Two SmartStop castors are mounted diagonally and are activated by a magnet set into the ground. If the trolley
is moved slightly sideways, the two SmartStop castors lock at an angle of 30°. The trolley can then only be moved
in circles and this effectively prevents the removal of shopping trolleys from the premises.
Once the trolley is moved back over the magnet, the castors automatically unlock and the trolley can be used again.
The locking mechanism is triggered by permanent magnets. SmartStop is fully mechanical, virtually maintenance-free
and does not require any batteries. Compared to other security systems, the locking process is gentle, no sudden braking,
but only a soft rotating motion.
