Class Information
Number: 254/376
Name: Implements or apparatus for applying pushing or pulling force > Apparatus for hauling or hoisting load, including driven device which contacts and pulls on cable > Device includes rotatably driven, cable contacting drum > Including means for preventing or retarding rotation of drum in at least one direction > Ratchet wheel or formation and locking pawl
Description: Apparatus wherein the means consist of either (a) a wheel having teeth located on its perimeter, the wheel being rotatably interconnected to the drum, and a pawl which interlocks with the teeth in one direction of the wheel"s rotation to prevent movement of the drum and which disengages from the teeth in the other direction of the wheel"s rotation to allow movement of the drum, or (b) a stationary ratchet formation having teeth located on its perimeter and a pawl connected to the drum which revolves around an axis when the drum is rotated, the pawl interlocks with the teeth in one direction of its travel to prevent movement of the drum and disengages from the teeth in the other direction of its travel to allow movement of the drum.
