New Ford Yoke Type Meter Holding Device.
The accompanying cut shows a meter setting using the Ford regular double lid type meter box cover. This setting may be used equally as well with the Southern type, single lid covers. The illustration is self-explanatory. This new device is a marked improvement over the former Ford meter holding yoke from several standpoints. The expansion connection which is used is screwed on to the meter spud first, and then the meter is lowered into position in the yoke, which has already been installed on risers and expanded by a few turns of the hand wheel. The necessary gaskets arc supplied with yoke ends, and are held permanently in place in recesses therein. This new device was shown for the first time at the convention of the Indiana Sanitary and Water Supply Association at Indianapolis. Since that time the Terre Haute Water Company alone has ordered these devices for 2,500 settings. Besides this, a large number of them have been installed by the Scranton Gas & Water Company, and numerous other water works departments.
