An Automatic Devil Dog is a kit that was sold as a Car alarm. It was manufactured by Northwest Electric Co. of Pukwana South Dakota.
It Basicaly worked like a tilt mechanism in a pin ball machine. The owner could turn on a Hidden switch when leaving the car and if the car was bumped, or jarred from someone entering the car. the mechanism would trip and intermittently sound the car horn. The sensativity of the unit could also be set to make the horn sound more or less depending on the car movement.
Some people went as far as hooking it to a buzz coil that would shock the would be theif.
