You've never heard of the Denver Boot. I think they were first to use a clamp.
The standard denver boot is designed to fit vehicles that have a flat rim face. The difference between the standard boot and the 4x4 boot is the amount of height inside the hub. The standard boot will fit the majority of the vehicles on the road.
On the right is the hub that comes with the standard denver boot. The purpose of the hub is to prevent access to the lug nuts for removal of the entire tire.
