No. Not seats or lug nuts.

It's not a fastener, and it's not something that would typically be found in the interior. This device is very small, but very important. Most modern cars have 8 of them.

Not what I had in mind, but nice guess.

The device I'm talking about is very small. You could probably fit several dozen of them in the palm of your hand.

A valiant effort, Brian, but that's not the answer I was looking for.

Final clue:

This device is patented, and bears the name of it's inventor.

C-10 is correct



The Schrader Valve was invented in 1891 by August Schrader and has been used in nearly every car ever built. In addition to being used as a tire valve, it is also used in service ports for air conditioning and fuel injection systems.

Time to air this out a little... (pardon the pun)

A shocking invention in the mid 1920's, Earle S. MacPherson gleaned his design philosophy from an engineer that worked for WHAT auto manufacturer?
