The Kadee(R) #119 coupler represents the prototypical Type "SE" coupler which is a standard Type "E" coupler with a top and bottom shelf (also called hoods). The #119 SE coupler has the patented Kadee(R) "Whisker(R)" centering spring intergraded into the shank and is now a once piece drop in coupler. The top shelf can be removed and the coupler will then represent the bottom shelf Type "SBE" coupler. There would be no reason to remove the bottom shelf since our #58 and #158 already represent the standard Type "E" coupler with a medium shank and our short shank #153 and long shank #156 also are "scale head" couplers.

It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gear box to avoid the possible electrical crossover or shorting that may cause damage
