    Is it a flywheel holder-in-place-so-it-doesn't-spin-when-you-try-to-take-it-off-er? Took me a minute to put together a decent guess and that's all I could come up with.

    As Charlie Brown said to Lucy, "That's it!"

    Wife got it for me and she is good at getting me hard to get stuff. It's from Japan, Marutha Motors.

    Santa swung by last night. I left out some rum, eggnog and cookies but accidentally partook and crashed out on the couch during A Christmas Carol. Found these in the morning and a note that I was receiving one more package today:

    Our presents where in the form of a Re-Fi to pay off the new roof and a little left over to pay off some small bills. Starting off the New Year with a growing Savings Account and a little surplus funds each month.

    Besides the foam-covered hooks, it has magnetic mounts for steel hoods and is fully rotational or you you can disconnect the light from the mount and drag it underneath the car with you. With two brightness settings and a six-hour run time on batteries, this LED searchlight comes in handy for hurricane lighting as well as being a light saber. Also, it can safely run while plugged into AC power along with overcharge protection which its competitors can’t.

    Oh, if it it can grab a fiberglass Corvette hood that opens forward and has a dramatic rescinding downward angle, it can grab a Miata hood no problem.
