Class Information
Number: 254/392
Name: Implements or apparatus for applying pushing or pulling force > Device or member for contacting and guiding moving cable > Including rotatable, cable contacting, pulley wheel element > With fluid, shock absorbing or tension restoring mechanism connected thereto
Description: Cable guides in which the device is provided with a fluid mechanism attached to the element for either (a) retarding changes in the position or attitude of the element resulting from variations in the amount of tension on the cable, or (b) restoring the element to a position or attitude in close proximity to its initial location or orientation subsequent to a change in its position or attitude as in (a) above.
