Automatic Switch Point Lock Folded Pedal

Switch Point Locks

Rails’ automatic 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.

Switch Point Locks

The Rails Switch Point Lock is a ruggedly constructed, simple, mechanical safety device that has thoroughly proven its reliability at railroads throughout the United States and Canada.

The Switch Point Lock is attached to a normally closed switch point to hold it in its normal position at all times, thus 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, and 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 Switch Point Lock should be positioned as close to the switch point as possible, where there is sufficient clearance.

To install, remove the base plate and apply the angle bracket with the switch in open position. Square the angle bracket and pull the nut up tight. Close the switch point and assemble the base plate to the angle bracket with foot pedal in “up” position, allowing about 1/8” clearance between the outside base of the rail and the shoulder of the base plate before the bolt is tightened. Tighten the  1” bolt until the angle bracket and base plate faces are in full contact.

Step on the foot pedal and throw the switch to open position. The foot pedal remains in “down” position until the switch point is closed. When the point is closed, the base plate will snap up and lock the switch. It can’t be opened until the foot pedal is pushed in the “down” position.
