The YouTube video below is of a BOYS & RUCKER'S SIGNAL CYCLOMETER for a High Wheel bicycle. This is a very early model circa 1884. I know of various other B & R Signal Cyclometers with different closure styles.

The cyclometer itself works great but the early model has a design flaw. The flaw is at the clamp/clasp/lock of the closure mechanism. In this instance the clamp/clasp/lock mechanism has snapped off. I do not need images of the other B & R Cyclometers.

I need is a photograph or sketch of that mechanism.

If anyone has an example or can direct me to one so that I can get
an image to restore the clamp I would greatly appreciate that.

Kind regards
