Spit hoods, or spit socks, are commonly used by law enforcement to prevent the threat of detained citizens spitting or biting. Spit hoods catch and retain potentially toxic blood, vomit and other bodily fluids. They’re loose fitting, so one size fits all, and they allow suspects to see and breathe normally.
If constructed of a thicker, opaque material, zombie spit hoods could prevent the undead menace from not only biting but also seeing its surroundings. And when paired with a modified dog catcher’s pole, as seen below, the tool might prove useful in capturing and disposing of roaming zombies while still keeping a safe distance.
The hood could be added to the end of the pole so you never need to get too close!
