    Pull that string as hard as you can. Assuming you live through it let us know what happened.

    The "retractable string" intrigues me!

    Still no idea what it is!...the retractable cord is quite long to make it easy to stick anywhere on the windscreen...i think!

    Technically the retractable bit makes it a zinger (qv), often for attaching one's nippers to.

    You are of course correct in your observations, what I meant to say was...Its a Mk2 sticky disc Zingger with a retractable cord, the Mk1 had a fixed cord.

    As an aside, Zingger (when used in conjunction with 'disc' has a double g.):D

    This - is a Zinger,
    To be precise, a Double Plastic Extra Large Zinger

    You can attach two nippers to it.

    And this one "prevents accidental pokes" apparently

    Hi, I thought you were joking when you said it was a ZINGER, your 2nd post prompted me to 'give it a google' as well as the ones above there are several other 'Ziners' even a word meaning caustic remark.:)
    I also thought that the nippers were children
