Now I remember where I put the one that came in the 1963 Chrysler... I put it into the '72 CB that Dan bought for a parts car. To think that I wasted all that time looking for it for the past year.

Discussion of the Rhinecliff ambulance's hook/cot setup can be found at that thread. http://www.professionalcarsociety.or...ad.php?t=17201

Here's a photo of a Model 7 in use with a Model 26 cot, courtesy This Old Ambulance.

There are no instructions for the device that I've seen - but the kit came with post cups. Therefore, it's rather unusual to see it at the foot of the cot. My guess is there's a "stop" at the front similar to the later Model 5 (http://www.mortuarymall.com/Ferno-Mo...Set-p/fw-5.htm) or "antlers" like the the Model 173-2. (http://www.fernointernational.com/en...system-in.aspx) Perhaps there was a transitional period for these products - or as so often happened, something was cobbled together.

If you think about it. having it in the rear would make it a lot easier to get the gurney in and out. As you said the fire deptment added it later. They made the guess as to were to put it. The cups are to hold the gurney in place. This lock would keep!The legs in the cups if put in the rear. The one pictured doesn't have any cups.
