VG Safety Gears consist of a pair of end assemblies, which can bolt directly to the buffer channels or car frame. Each end assembly has two spring loaded linkage mechanisms, which carry and engage the friction gibs. The linkage mechanisms are designed to centralise the safety gear when it is engaged. This feature, in conjunction with large running clearances, means that VG Safety Gears can be used with spring loaded roller guide shoes, sliding shoes or solid rollers.
