Turning the Throw

The throw on Atlas switches can be switched from the through side of the switch, to the curved side, if clearance is needed on the through side.  Simply lift the black plastic tabs on the top of the throw, that hold the switch points, and slip the rails toward the centre (from under the tabs).  The throw bar can now be pulled out, turned around and slip back into place.  The rails will now snap back under the tabs with a simple push.  Don Pearce was the first to explain this to me.
throw in normal position, you can see the tab at the point of the rail

throw removed note hole in tab on the switch point this is what the throw tab locks into
