The Handbag Dyetonator is the world’s first device that permanently marks snatch thieves and releases a smoke flare after they commit a crime.
Now, they can be caught red-handed – literally.
The Handbag Dyetonator
Masked as stylish handbag accessories, every Handbag Dyetonator packs a revolutionary mechanism designed to easily identify snatch thieves, and act as a deterrent for future snatch thefts.
DETONATE WITH A TEXT
Every Dyetonator is linked to a 6-digit detonation code of the users’ choice. In case of a snatch theft, sending the code by SMS to 36663 using any available phone activates a charge inside the Dyetonator within seconds.
The Handbag Dyetonator is packed with permanent dye, and a smoke flare. When detonated, the keychain explodes, ensuring the snatch thief is marked clearly and indelibly with a burst of colours. The smoke flare further ensures visibility.
How It Works
In case of a snatch theft, a detonation code can be sent by SMS from any phone.
The message is re-routed to a SIM card inside the Handbag Dyetonator.
An electrical current triggers explosive charges that detonate coloured dye and smoke flare packs simultaneously.
The GPS module is also activated, so the bag’s location can be tracked in real time.

ABOUT ASH BE NIMBLE
Hui Mathews launched Ash Be Nimble’s first collection in March 2014, with only 2 sports bras, and 2 running shorts. Today, the rapidly growing company boasts a variety of sports apparel for men, women, children, and even a muslimah range.
Going the extra mile has always been at the heart of Ash Be Nimble. Despite starting off as an active wear brand, founder Hui has gone beyond to do more by hosting community activities such as trail runs, yoga classes, and collaborating with local and international fitness enthusiasts and athletes.
The Handbag Dyetonator is Ash Be Nimble’s latest effort to go even further, and put control back into the hands of women while they pursue the life they deserve.
A CALL FOR HEAVIER SENTENCES FOR SNATCH THIEVES
While the Handbag Dyetonator aims to mark snatch thieves so justice can be brought upon them, prevention is always better than cure.
Snatch thefts are on the rise in Malaysia, and the most common targets are women walking alone. Victims are often injured, or even killed as a result of being dragged along by the culprits’ motorbikes.
Despite the devastating consequences and pervasiveness of the crimes, there are currently no specific laws for snatch thefts.
Instead, those convicted of the crimes will be charged under Section 379 of the Penal Code, which stipulates a punishment of imprisonment up to 7 years, or fine, or both. A second or subsequent offence is punishable with imprisonment, fine and/or whipping.
In light of all this, there is a need to implement stiffer punishments for convicted snatch thieves. It serves as a deterrent to others, and also stops them from committing the same crime upon release.
Together with the National Crime Prevention Network Association (NCPNA), we are starting a petition calling for the Malaysian government to impose sentences specific to snatch thieves in accordance to the severity of their crimes, to protect the safety of Malaysian citizens.
Please sign the petition, and join our call to bring justice to the victims of snatch thefts.
