Abstract : A wedge assembly for spacing apart batteries which permits a complete range of operation with all components remaining intact in their assembled form is provided. A central or inner wedge having a plurality of identical wedge sections is movable between a pair of outer wedges or side plates having mating inner sections and a planar outer surface. Wedging action is produced by torquing a bolt secured to the outer wedges and threaded through a nut secured in the inner wedge. The wedging components are held together and in alignment by screws attached to the inner wedge and guided through slots formed in the outer wedges. (Author)
