Photograph of SCP-2501 during testing, circa 19██.


SCP-2501 is a mechanical gauntlet that, when worn and held in front of the user, has the ability to apply an extreme amount of pressure on an object within the perspective of the user in relation to the claw-like mechanism. The size and density of the object in question along with the distance of the object from the user does not matter. The process will always act as if two invisible forces are pressing against the object at opposite ends.
