Our Squeeze Horns

Update 10/18 I fell in love with squeeze horns, aka taxi horns, bulb horns, clown horns… as a boy, the first time I saw Harpo Marx on tv. Many many years later, on a trip to India I discovered that squeeze horns were still very much in use – you could hear them everywhere! I bought a half dozen, took them home with me to the U.S. and set up shop at SqueezeHorns.com. Sadly the business failed… the problem was A) I didn’t know what I was doing, B) Shipments always arrived damaged, and finally C) Life intervened and I got busy with a career change, moving and well, more than you need to know about 😉But I want to get the business going again, so I’m looking for manufacturers. Someone who will work with me in some custom designs and also packaging. Follow along! Thanks!

Looking to get horns back in stock. If you’re a manufacturer, here are the problems I’m hoping to solve… Horns come to me pre-boxed individually with their own padding for immediate shipping. High-quality rubber bulbs (slow down oxidation). Either a custom molded bicycle handlebar attachment bracket as part of the horn itself, or an exceptionally well-designed and robust separate attachment bracket. If you can provide horns to this specification, or you know someone who can, please contact me!

As of May, 2014 I remain on hiatus! When the horns are for sale again, the Paypal buttons will return.

Life intervenes! Sorry! As much as I love these horns and making them available, the fact is it’s been more of a hobby than a business. I’ve been traveling and relocating. I hope to have the store open again at some point but can’t say when.  In the interim you might find a similar horn available through THIS STORE on Amazon.

If you have any questions or are having any trouble placing your order, please don’t hesitate to email me!

Prices include shipping to U.S. only!
Please contact me directly if you wish to order from outside the U.S.

    How to clean the rubber bulb
    It leaves your hand black!

      I’m just discovering this myself. What I’m suspecting is that the second batch of horns I received included bulbs with inferior rubber quality. I’ve cleaned mine with dish washing detergent.

      Sorry, I don’t just now. Also the bulb on our horns is larger than 1 cm. If you do find a source please let me know.
