Train Coupler Dampner - Disassembling Frame/Jig

Request to buy this product

Industry: Rail

Application: Disassembling of train coupler dampners for overhaul

Problem: Current manual method involves use of spanner and long extension bar. This is both time consuming and could pose a safety risk

  • Frame of jig designed to retain the coupler during the disassembling process
  • Retaining pin prevents rotational movement of the coupler when being disassembled
  • Safe reaction point for pneumatic tool


  • Saves time - the use of the jig with a pneumatic torque tool speeds up the disassembling process
  • Provides a safe integral reaction point
  • Greatly reduces the safety risks associated with the previous manual method
