Maltby Come Along

Type: Come Along

This come along was manufactured by the Mattatuck Co. of Waterbury, Conn. It is marked "The Maltby". It is a curious bit of mechanical smarts. Pulling up on the T-shaped lever opens the jaws. Pressing the small trigger at the base of the jaws against a wrist causes the jaws to spring shut trapping the wrist. The mechanism doesn't reset till the T-shaped lever is released entirely.
