Allpro Parking Introduces the Barnacle: The Less Intrusive Immobilization Device


(Buffalo, NY) – On November 1, Allpro Parking, LLC, a local leader in innovative parking solutions, will begin deploying the Barnacle® as their preferred method of parking enforcement. In order to run a comprehensive and professional parking operation, Allpro required an enforcement solution for those who fail to pay or follow regulations in their parking lots. This easy-to-use immobilization device simplifies parking enforcement; putting the customer in control over the release of the device.


After several warnings have been issued and immobilization becomes necessary, Allpro Parking will deploy the Barnacle instead of the parking boot. The device has two commercial grade suction cups that adhere to the vehicle windshield with 1,000 pounds of force. By obstructing the driver’s view, the Barnacle prohibits legal operation of the vehicle rendering it immobilized. The device is equipped with tamper alarms and GPS tracking. Drivers can easily remove the Barnacle by following the instructions printed on the device which allows them to pay online or over the phone 24 hours a day. After release, the driver is responsible to return the Barnacle to the drop box next to the Allpro Parking office.

“We value our customers and always want to provide the professional difference and a convenient experience,” Richard A. Serra, President and CEO of Allpro Parking said. “The Barnacle is a great solution for our company and for our customers – and is far less intrusive than the conventional methods of booting or towing. Parking with Allpro Parking is made easy.”

In addition to paying an attendant or by meter, Allpro Parking provides several other convenient ways to pay for parking with apps such as Passport Parking, HonkMobile, and ParkMobile; reserving parking in advance through ParkWhiz and SpotHero, and the newest method, Tap to Pay by HonkMobile, which does not require an app download. By using the Barnacle for enforcement, Allpro Parking hopes to ease the burden of immobilization for its customers.

“Allpro Parking is known for their award-winning customer service, and we are thrilled they are introducing the Barnacle platform to their offering,” said Kevin Dougherty, CEO of Barnacle Parking Enforcement. “We believe that enforcement is a necessary part of the customer service process, as it ensures fairness, space availability, and convenience to customers. The Barnacle system provides that enforcement in a customer friendly way that is fast and easy to resolve.”
