PEDAL OPERATED SWITCH POINT LOCK
FITS RAILS – 51/2″ TO 6″ RAIL BASE:
LOCKABLE WITH STANDARD SWITCH LOCK 11/16 HOLE FOR LOCK.
Switch point lock is a ruggedly constructed and reliable safety device, featuring
a vandal proof folding pedal that folds and tucks into the web of the rail when padlocked, leaving nothing exposed.
The unit is attached to a normally closed switch point to hold it in its normal position at all times, preventing possible accidents to trains passing over or through the switch layout due to engine or car wheels “splitting” the switch. Facing point train operations are safeguarded.
Switch points are locked in place against accidental movement even due to defective throw rods and hardware. The unit is automatic in its closing and locking action. To open the switch, just step down on the pedal, then operate the switch stand lever in the usual manner. To close the switch, operate the switch stand lever and the device automatically returns to its normal locked position. The pedal is then raised to the “folded” position and a padlock applied.
