Curb feelers or curb finders are springs or wires installed on a vehicle which act as "whiskers" to warn drivers that they are too close to the curb or other obstruction. The devices are fitted low on the body, close to the wheels. As the vehicle approaches the curb, the protruding 'feelers act as whiskers and scrape against the curb making a noise and alerting the driver in time to avoid damaging the wheels or hubcaps Since they are flexible, they bend out of the way when pressed against a surface.
These are sometimes called Kerb Feelers, Curb finders or cat's wiskers.
