We find many switchmen who, taught by experience, disregard the presence of any "Knuckle-Opener" or "Kicker" and open the knuckle, always, by hand. Thus, in a very practical way is made manifest the necessity for a safe design in a “safety-appliance.
The "Knuckle Opener" in the Pitt Coupler is positive in its operation and pushes the knuckle open to its fullest range of movement either from a fully closed position or from any partially open position regardless of rust.
With the Pitt Coupler the switchmen will never be obliged to reach in-on sudden impulse—at the last moment and when the car is in motion to open the knuckle by hand.

Whenever any vested wrong is to be righted or any long-standing abuse corrected, those who profit by the wrong or the abuse are prompt to pose as the defenders of property, and to charge the reformers with attacking property rights. This is the historic attitude of those who oppose remedial legislation. The insincerity of the position taken is usually shown by the arguments employed by these self-styled champions of property, and one of the best illustrations of these arguments is to be found in the story of Demetrius, the silversmith. It reads as follows:
And the same time there arose no small stir about that way.
For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen; whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, 'Sirs, mye know that by this craft we have our wealth. Moreover, ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands. So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at naught; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.' And when they
heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, saying, “Great is Diana of the Ephesians.'
The silversmith was profiting by the worship of idols; the making of images the
of his income. He called together those who we
were engaged in the same occupation, and when all were convinced that Paul's preaching would bring them financial injury they joined in a protest, but they did not give their real reason for opposing Christianity-namely, that it would cause them à money loss, but they pretended a fervent devotion to the goddess Diana. So, to-day, the beneficiaries of bad laws and bad governmental systems are defending their pecuniary interests with arguments that imply great devotion to the public welfare. Having satisfied themselves that the reforms demanded by the people will lessen their power to extort from, and to tyrannize over, the people, these monopolists and their defenders shout “Great is property! Great are the rights of property!” While the issue between the man and the dollar seems to be an acute one, yet in the last analysis there can be no issue between human rights and property rights, for nothing more surely undermines property rights than a disregard for human rights, and nothing brings greater security to property than a scrupulous regard for the natural rights of each hu
