The Control Rod Joiner/Hanger is a dual-purpose part that can join control rods together or for hanging lengths of control rods under your layout. The hanger is designed with two different sizes of holes. One set is used for holding two joined control rods with a joiner sleeve. The other set holds the control rod under the layout. We recommend using at least one hanger for every 18" control rod.

When used as a joiner, the joiner/hanger makes it easy to join two lengths of control rods together to create a single rod. Multiple joiners/hangers can be used to create a control rod up to 40 feet long, depending on the number of bends in the run.

Each kit includes all the parts you need to join or hang control rods in position under your layout. Parts included in each kit are:

  • 1 - Control Rod Hanger
  • 1 - Joiner Sleeve for joining the outer rods
  • 1 - Threaded Rod for joining the inner rods

The control rod joiner/hanger comes unassembled and can be put together with white glue in about 5 minutes.

The BullFrog Switch Machine and Accessories

This all-in-one document provides complete instructions for assembling the BullFrog Manual Turnout Control, TadPole Remote Control Rod Mount, Control Rod Hanger/Joiner, Control Rod Kit, The SideWinder, and Decorative Knobs.

The BullFrog Manual Turnout Control

One of the least expensive manual turnout controls available anywhere; the BullFrog offers all the same features as more expensive turnout controls. It includes a full selection of options and accessories. This overview video explains how the system works.

BullFrog Control Rod Kit

The control rod kit includes all of the parts that you will need to connect the BullFrog manual turnout control to your front panel.

BullFrog Dual Actuator For Free-Mo Layouts

The BullFrog Dual Actuator makes it easy to switch the BullFrog switch machine from both sides of your layout. Designed for Free-mo modules, the actuator can be used on any type of layout where you need to control the BullFrog manual turnout control from two locations.

BullFrog Manual Turnout Control - Stress Testing

Before releasing our new BullFrog manual turnout control, we built this test jig to stress test the design. After 100,000 cycles, the BullFrog showed no significant signs of wear. To simulate switching stress, we restrained the switch wire, which broke after 10,000 cycles, while the BullFrog was no worse for wear.
