Share Article

InventHelp is working to submit this idea, the BRAKE CLUB, to companies in the hopes of a good faith review.

An inventor, from Yucaipa, Calif., cites that 40 percent of railroad injury incidents are caused by ascending and/or descending railroad equipment. He thought there needed to be a safer way for railroad employees to apply and release the hand brakes on freight cars, so he invented the BRAKE CLUB.

The BRAKE CLUB provides an improved way to apply and release hand brakes on railroad freight cars. In doing so, it ensures optimum gripping action and torque. It also saves employees from having to climb up equipment because the brake is applied from the ground. In addition, it saves time, it enhances safety and it could help to prevent injuries. The invention features an effective design that is convenient and easy to use so it is ideal for the railroad industry. Additionally, the BRAKE CLUB is producible in design variations and a prototype is available.

The inventor described the invention design. “My design prevents injuries while enhancing torque.”

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