This fit around the tire of a Model T car...

 

Written on the metal plate, which you can see in the photo..."This car is protected by the Auto Theft Signal System, patented Aug 25, 1914, $100 Reward For Arrest and Conviction as a thief of any person operating this car or tampering with the signal. Miller-Chapman Co, Manufacturers, Los Angeles, California"

 

Today, the police use boots to enforce a no-parking zone, etc......"back in the day", individuals carried them when they parked so that no one stole their automobile.....

 

Just one more thing from my museum-home...:)
