Title: SHACKLE FOR STABILIZING A VEHICLE DURING TRANSPORT
Abstract:
A device (200) and method (300) for stabilizing a vehicle during transport provides a detachably attached anchoring point on a vehicle for a tethered cable to securely fasten to from multiple directions and with strong tensions on the tethered cable for helping stabilize the vehicle during transport while minimizing damage to the vehicle. The device utilizes a biased, spring hinge (110) to pivotally enclose a linear member, such as a grip, on the vehicle. A fastener at the terminus of the cable flexibly and detachably joins with the device at apertures. Tabs (112) extend from the device to facilitate gripping for moving the device between an open and a closed position. The device (200) may detachably attach to multiple areas of the vehicle, and multiple devices may be used throughout the vehicle. These flexible, multi-positional features of the device increase the effectiveness of the tethered cables.
