Bank Robber Immobilizing Vestibule

So near as I can interpret this patent, in front of every bank teller's window is erected a revolving-door chamber. The customer--or robber--must enter the chamber, which revolves shut behind him. A good customer is allowed by the clerk's pressing of a switch to exit. The robber is held in place. What could go wrong?

As a - per the tags - innocent bystander, I would not under any circumstances be willing to enter this death contraption.

Then again, seeing that all banks are closing their offices all over the place (except of course in large, rich cities), I won't be seeing a teller ever again anyway.
