something to do with an old car

dieter said...

for holding the spare wheel in place. Can you see the straws i am cluching at now lol

Johnno said...

it might have something to do with a wheel?

Sue said...

Does it do the same job as a wheel nut, holding the wheel onto the car, (don't really know what I am talking about, but) holding the wheel onto the axil or something.

Easy, a wheel lock for an early model car with spoke wheels. The small hole locks around the spoke and the long pointy part locks around the tire and wheel.

And Johnno prolly still sells them in his shop to this day :))

Johnno said...

well done Kevin...here is the answer

Locks onto an old wheel and spoke to prevent the theft of a car, the side reads “Stop thief car lock”.
