Antenna Balls: Finding Your Vehicle in a Crowded Parking Lot

Antenna ball with American flag on it

Have you ever walked frantically around a large parking lot looking for your car? If so, you’ve gotta love antenna balls!

They come in all shapes, sizes and designs — from Mickey Mouse to happy faces. You just push them onto the end of your car’s antenna (if you have one on your vehicle) and your car is easy to spot in a crowded parking lot.

I’d never seen one until a few years ago, but now I can always locate my car, Goldie (guess what color she is?).

Pressing the button on the key fob to honk the horn and flash the car’s lights doesn’t always work — especially if you’re a distance away. But the ping-pong-ball type antenna markers are virtually dummy-proof — just walk past the end of each row in the parking lot and glance down it until you locate your car!

    I had no idea that this is why people would purchase an antenna ball. It was never hard to find my car before because it was so old and beat down. Now that I have a new car, it has become harder to find in a parking lot. An antenna ball could help.

    That’s an innovative technique. The patriotic theme isn’t bad either.
