CANDLE KEEPS ICE FROM FORMING ON WINDSHIELD (Dec, 1930)
CANDLE KEEPS ICE FROM FORMING ON WINDSHIELD
To keep ice, snow, and sleet from forming on the windshields of storm-swept cars an ingenious candle device has been invented. Many a driver knows the trick of sticking a lighted candle near the windshield, an idea embodied here in convenient form. All that is needed to attach the device to the windshield is to moisten the small vacuum cup fastener and press it firmly against the inside of the windshield, setting the candle in an upright position under the windshield wiper. The flame should be about a quarter of an inch away from the glass, and the candle may be adjusted to this distance by merely bending the metal holder. A shield keeps light out of the driver’s eyes.
