Abstract : The patent relates to a unidirectional braking device comprising a pliable member which is located partially in the path of a moving object for providing the retarding force to the object and a support member to substantially prevent the pliable member from yielding in the forward direction and to permit substantial yielding of the pliable member in the reverse direction. The pliable member comprises a material which is yieldable under the force created by the transmission of the object and braking is accomplished by means of friction between the pliable member and the object.
