English Abstract

By eliminating tires as the initial access point for mice, this invention
provides a new
concept to prevent the infiltration of mice into a parked vehicle, where they
cause damage.
This invention provides a drive on, drive off dual purpose Apparatus that also
provides tire
protection from the harmful elements that cause tire cracking. This invention
is to be laid
flit in front of the vehicle tires, then driven forward onto the non-slip base
of the invention,
then, pull up the large replaceable polyethylene bag that is sandwiched and
between two pieces of base material. The keyhole cut out on the side of the
bag allows the
user to pull the bag up to and around the axle and complete the wrap around
enclosure of the tire. The attached removable, reusable tie allows for the
cinching of the
top of the bag above the enclosed tire.

French Abstract

La présente invention offre un nouveau concept pour empêcher l'infiltration de souris à l'intérieur des véhicules garés, où elles peuvent causer des dommages, en éliminant les pneus comme point d'accès initial des souris. La présente invention fournit un appareil à double fin de chargement et de déchargement qui offre aussi la protection des pneus contre les éléments nuisibles pouvant faire craquer les pneus. Cette invention doit être couchée devant les pneus du véhicule qui sont alors avancés sur la base antidérapante de l'invention. Un grand sac de polyéthylène remplaçable est alors remonté, puis enserré et fixé entre deux pièces d'un matériau de base. Le trou situé sur le côté du sac permet à l'utilisateur de remonter le sac et de le placer autour de l'essieu et de terminer l'emballage autour du pneu. L'attache amovible et réutilisable permet le serrage de la partie supérieure du sac au-dessus du pneu qui se trouve à l'intérieur.

Note: Claims are shown in the official language in which they were submitted.

1. A Vehicle Tire Mouse Deterrent Apparatus that comprises:
a). two pieces of base material each being;
i. wide enough to allow elevation for a complete tire tread; and
ii. porous enough to provide a gripping effect on
the ground; and
iii. thick enough to provide weight and stability required when driving on
installation; and
iv. waterproof enough to withstand the elements while parked outside; and
v. long enough to hold a polyethylene bag open to prevent driving onto said
during installation.
b). the said Polyethylene Bag that is:
i. thick enough to deter mice from climbing; and
ii. large enough to enclose a tire; and
iii. comprising a rectangular gusset bottom to center the two pieces of the
material; and
iv. able to tighten securely around the top of a parked vehicle tire.
c). two piece screws that have a head at both ends that insert through both
sides of
the two-piece base material and the rectangular gusset bottom of the bag.
2. A Vehicle Tire Mouse Deterrent Apparatus of Claim 1 wherein the said bag
comprises a material with U.V. protection.

3. A Vehicle Tire Mouse Deterrent Apparatus of Claim 1 wherein the said bag
has a
grommet that provides a storage purpose so that:
a. when the vehicle is pulled onto the apparatus the grommet is readily
available to
access a cinch that is removed from the grommet; and
b. when the vehicle is to be taken out of storage the cinch is removed from
top of the bag and placed back on the grommet.
4. A Vehicle Tire Mouse Deterrent Apparatus of Claim 1 that has a cut out on
one side
of the Polyethylene bag.
5. A Vehicle Tire Mouse Deterrent Apparatus of Claim 1 has an attached,
cinch that allows the user to cinch the top of the bag.
