          Appeal No. 96-4017                                                          
          Application 08/217,544                                                      




                                 DECISION ON APPEAL                                   
                    This is a decision on appeal from the examiner's final            
          rejection of claim 1, which is the only claim remaining in the              
          application.  Claim 2 has been canceled.                                    


                    Appellant's invention relates to an antitheft device              
          for attachment to a vehicle steering wheel.  A copy of                      
          independent claim 1, the sole claim on appeal, is attached to               
          this decision.                                                              


                    The references of record relied upon by the examiner in           
          a rejection of appealed claim 1 under 35 U.S.C.  103 are:                  
          Wang                   5,092,146                   Mar.  3, 1992            
          Lien                   5,097,685                   Mar. 24, 1992            
          Wu                     5,255,544                   Oct. 26, 1993            


                    Claim 1 stands rejected under 35 U.S.C.  103 as being            
          unpatentable over Wu in view of Wang and Lien.                              


                    Rather than reiterate the examiner's explanation of the           
          above-noted rejection and the conflicting viewpoints advanced by            


                                          2
