InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Rail Lifting Hook, to applicable companies for their consideration.

Picking up panels and switches is often done with chains, hooks and slings, which has the result of wearing down and weakening and eventually breaking the chain links. "In order to make this task safer, and more convenient and efficient, I came up with this idea," said an inventor from Lubbock, Texas.

The patent-pending RAIL LIFTING HOOK allows for a much safer, easier and quicker way of lifting panels and switches. It will still be assisted by chains, but it will prevent the chain from rubbing and wearing against the rail and eventually breaking. As a result, it is much safer, time-efficient and cost-efficient.

Safer, durable, ergonomic and easy to use, the RAIL LIFTING HOOK is ideal for railroad companies, railroad-construction companies and contractors of the railroad.

The original design was submitted to the Houston office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
