Class Information
Number: 188/71.1
Name: Brakes > Wheel > Axially movable brake element or housing therefor
Description: Motion-retarding means wherein the motion to be retarded is rotation of a wheel, pulley, disc, or an analogous member rotating about an axis and having a radially-extending surface, and wherein said means includes a component with the following characteristics: (a) it is supported to be adjacent to said member, but substantially fixed against rotation therewith; (b) it has a friction surface complementary to said radially-extending surface, but normally spaced away therefrom; and (c) it may be moved in a direction parallel to said axis to effect mutual contact of the complementary surfaces, whereby upon occurrence of said contact, the rotation of said member will be retarded.
