Rail Industry Component:
Davanac Inc.: Toggle-Lock™ Outlet Gate

Davanac Inc.

The Toggle-Lock™ gate features a rapid-action self-locking door mechanism. The company says the Toggle-Lock does not require a secondary lock, has no rack or pinion to jam or wear and is sturdy and reliable. The Toggle-Lock mechanism cannot be over-opened as it has a positive stop, designed to prevent the loss of the slide plate even if the car is shipped with the gate in the open position. The clear opening comes in five sizes. The Toggle-Lock has been widely used in Canada for more than 50 years in grain and potash service and is available in the United States through Unity Railway Supply Co. Inc. Web site:
