Photo Diary: Where on Muni? April 11, 2011 eugenia 5 comments Photo by jdaisy Can you guess what this is? One hint: Ding! Category: diaries, Photos
It’s the cord you pull to request a stop! Specifically, the end of that cord.
It’s a metal crimp.
@MrEricSir: Be careful to to confuse them with Metal Chimps, which you’re a lot less likely to find on a bus:
That is the crimp that closes the bus signal cord after it loops around the signal actuator. Pulling the cord yanks the actuator and causes the bell to ring and light up the stop request light.
It’s a piece of Nate Ford’s heart.
