Description

This antique, 1920'S era, Otis Elevator dead man's control was used to elevate or lower the elevator. It is solid brass, with the manufacturer's logo on the crank housing.

To operate, the elevator operator would hold the crank in place to engage the lift. It was referred to as a "Dead man" control due to the need for the operator to be attentive and in full control to maintain elevator position!

Controls read "Emergency Stop", "Emergency Operation", "Light Switch" and "Stop, Start" around a Yale lock.

This piece was salvaged from the Public Service Building of Nashville, Tennessee, est (1929).
