Special rules of classification

Unless otherwise stated, classification should be made in the most appropriate place(s). Multiple classification should be given if appropriate.

Brakes {(back-pedalling brakes B62L 5/00)}; Arrangements thereof
Definition statement

This place covers:

This is the head group where classification is given if none of the sub groups are relevant as such and includes in particular arrangements of disc brakes or drum brakes.
