Fascinating facts about James Winner inventor of The Club in 1986.

JAMES WINNER
 
AT A GLANCE:
In 1986, James E. Winner Jr. began marketing The Club after his Cadillac was stolen, despite its factory-installed alarm. An Army veteran, he remembered his tour of duty in Korea and how he secured his vehicle's steering wheel with a chain to prevent theft. In marketing The Club, Winner International created a totally new class of automotive aftermarket security devices. The Club is the original patented, vehicle steering wheel lock and the No. 1 selling mechanical anti-theft device for cars and trucks. Source: Winner International
