r Au the Thief Takes HI Seat at the Steering yheel, He Seta Going an
t . - Invisible Alarm Dell, Which Continues to Ring Until Switched Off by
a Concealed Switch in Another Part of the Car.
8 Many good nnd cfllclcnt automobile
locks hnve been called Into exlsfenco
by the epfdcmlc of automobile thefts,
Ud there is now no excuse for leav
tag a car unprotected. The locks In
jt general uso are of several classes,
m . cacli presenting Its own ndvantnpes
and open to its own objections. Elec-
v trlcal locks for merely breaking the
Urnltlon circuit were the llrst on the
" utfiqe, and are still used to some ex-
I tet, although no expert automobllu
I thief would be delayed by them for
fj woe than n few seconds, as ho would

ringing, and continue to ring even
nfter the thief leaves his fcoat and
eecks safety from the police or citi
zens who are sure to be attracted by
the noise of the bell. The bell will
continue to ring until tho owner re
turns to the car, or until somebody
Minis the hidden control switch and
turns It off. Of course, If the thief Is
Ingenious enough to find this switch
at once, he can turn off the alarm him
self, but there Is small chance of a
thief working very long around a car
to the accompaniment of a loudly
claliglng belt. '
Diagram Explains. ,
Tl'e various parts of tho circuit and
their connection are shown In tho din
cram. Tho materials needed aro : One
or mere smnll switches to bo con
cealed as well as posslblo within
reach of the driver; n good, loud elec
tric bell ; a relay, or circuit breaker,
such as Is used on nearly all modern
automobiles to connect tho generator
to the battery when tho proper speed
Is reached; somo roslstnnco wire,
large enough to carry several amperes
of current and some pieces of wood
and spring brass to make the scat
switch. As will be noted In the cir
cuit diagram when tho concealed
switch Is closed nnd the seat switch
Is closed, the circuit through the bell
Is established, and, at the same time,
tho circuit through tho circuit-breaker
switch, so Unit, even though the
latter Is open, tho bell continues
to ring. The resistance coll would
not be necessnry If the circuit through
the bell was continuous. Since, how
ever, It Is Interrupted at eacn tap of
the bell, the coll Is necessary In order
to maintain n sufllclent current
through the circuit breaker to keep It
from permitting the shunt circuit
across the scat switch to open, thus
stopping the alarm. The only way the
alarm can be stopped Is by breaking
the main circuit, either at the con
cealed switch or at some other point.
If properly wired this cannot be dona
by a stranger without spending con
siderable time, which, under tho cir
cumstances, is out of the question for
a thief, at least In a city or town.

The framers of the Federal Con
