This assembly is configured to provide for both lateral and angular adjustment. This allows the plate to fit into any existing or new switch alignment, regardless of switch angle, curve, hand or tie spacing. Once set to the required angle and spacing, the swivel-slide plates can be securely welded to the gage plate ends.
The new gage plate is designed utilizing the current state-of-the-art standard insulation assembly materials and includes the Common Standard Style Lifting Hook for safety and ease of handling. The rail seat ends can be adapted to allow for application and installation of any of the variety of switch brace assemblies that are available.
