Title (EN) A DEVICE FOR RELEASABLY SECURING ONE UNIT AGAINST A SECOND UNIT
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUR ASSURER L"AMARRAGE D"UNE UNITE A UNE AUTRE UNITE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device (10) is provided for use in releasably securing one unit (e.g., the rear end of a truck vehicle) against a second unit (e.g., a loading dock (D)). The device (10) comprises an elongated member (11) mounted for controlled endwise movement relative to a locking assembly (17), the latter being adjustably mounted on the loading dock (D). Carried by the elongated member (11) and extending from an end thereof towards the truck is an attaching cable (12) which is adapted to be releasably secured to the truck when the elongated member (11) is disposed in a predetermined relative position with respect to the locking assembly (17). A brake (25) is adjustably mounted within the locking assembly (17) for movement between operative and inoperative positions. When the brake (25) is in an operative position, the exterior of the elongated member (11) is frictionally engaged thereby so that the elongated member (11) can be moved endwise in only one direction away from the truck. When the brake (25) is in an inoperative position, the elongated member (11) can be moved in either endwise direction relative to the locking assembly (17). The brake (25) is biased to normally assume an operative position. Manually actuated lever (32) and finger (30) are carried on the locking assembly (17) for moving the brake (25) from an operative position to an inoperative position.
(FR)Le dispositif (10) est prevu pour assurer l"amarrage d"une unite (par exemple l"arriere d"une remorque de vehicule) a une autre unite (par exemple un quai de chargement). Le dispositif (10) comprend un organe allonge (11) agence de facon a controler le mouvement de son extremite par rapport a un ensemble de verrouillage (17), ce dernier etant monte de facon reglable sur le quai de chargement (D). Un cable d"amarrage (12), fixe sur l"organe allonge (11) et s"etendant a partir de son extremite en direction de la remorque, est adapte pour etre fixe a la remorque quand l"organe allonge (11) est dans une position determinee par rapport a l"ensemble de verrouillage (17). Un frein (25) ajustable est monte a l"interieur de l"ensemble de verrouillage (17) en vue du mouvement entre les positions active et inactive. Quand le frein (25) est dans une position active, la partie exterieure de l"organe allonge (11) est engagee a friction de sorte que l"organe allonge (11) peut etre deplace par son extremite dans une seule direction a l"ecart de la remorque. Quand le frein (25) est dans une position inactive, l"organe allonge (11) peut etre deplace par son extremite dans l"une ou l"autre direction par rapport a l"ensemble de verrouillage (17). Le frein (25) se trouve normalement en position active. Un levier (32) et un doigt de contact (30), tous deux fixes sur l"ensemble de verrouillage (17), permettent de faire passer manuellement le frein de la position active a la position inactive.
