This is the best support bracket for the steering column I have ever seen for the early cowled Model T. It clamps to the cowl lip so there is no need for drilling. It really helps take the spring out of the steering column without putting holes in your car.

I wonder why it never get as popular as the one that goes on under the dash and attaches to the firewall.

Hi Jay,

That is SO clever! No holes to drill and a friction fit as it is slid down the steering column. THAT is the kind of thinking and creativity that MADE America great.

Timing. It was practically obsolete as soon as the patent was applied for. There would have been some market with the 1915-20 cars on the road, but not a growing one. Looks like a great item ! Thanks for a thorough look at this piece Jay !

A clock or other accessory could be mounted on the flat spot. It would make a great item to reproduce but I doubt it would pay in the long run to do so.
