Looks like a auto breakin waiting to happen. Also, does not look all that comfortable.
I had a friend in high school that had 1 arm and the state mandated that she have a knob on the wheel to drive. Worked out fine for her, but it was more like a ball and smooth.

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
My mother had an uncle who put one on his John Deere lawn tractor. It was the subject of many laughs. So many that I still remember it today and he's been gone for 25+ years.
I remember one of those on a '66 Ford Galaxy 500. Power steering smooth as glass....unless the engine died, and then a gorilla couldn't turn that freaking wheel :)

Suicide knob, baby moons and fender skirts! Forgot about all three until I read the title of the thread.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
I forgot about those steering wheel knobs. I never had one but as a kid my cousin put one on his bicycle, his Sunday-school-teacher-mother walked by it one day and saw the knob, which had a girlie-type picture on it. Needless to say it came off the bike.

Yep...Thats what I want to hit my head on....
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
I had a steering wheel knob on a 1960 Ford.

Give me a minute before I post again.
Had one on the John Deere. That give me an idea. Mount one up to hold my loose bullets. That way they aren't rolling around on the floor or in my ash tray.
We sure didn't call them suicide knobs! I've got one on a old Ford tractor that helps a lot - especially if you don't have power steering. I had a friend that got his wrist broken by a spinning _ knob. The older ones are bringing pretty good prices at garage/estate sales.
