Magnetically Operated Knuckle Couplers
E-Z Mate® couplers make use of precision molding techniques to allow the molding of springs as an integral part of the knuckle coupler; E-Z Mate® Mark II couplers include an integrated metal coil spring. E-Z Mate® and E-Z Mate® Mark II couplers eliminate the problems and expense associated with separate coil springs.
To install E-Z Mate® and E-Z Mate® Mark II couplers, just remove the coupler pocket cover, drop in the coupler, and replace the cover. Operation is simple as well. E-Z Mate® and E-Z Mate® Mark II couplers operate with a standard metal “glad hand” and under-track magnet, and they are completely compatible with all magnetically operated knuckle couplers currently on the market. (Our under-track magnet comes with a trackside brakeman figure to indicate the magnet’s position.) Coupling, uncoupling, and other yard operations are all performed with ease.
