Belt Shifter - A small loop which the treadle belt passes through, just above the Band Wheel. When the belt shifter is moved sideways and the Treadle is operated the belt will disengage from the band wheel. The belt shifter is sprung to the normal operating position, which also assists with getting the belt back on the the band wheel. On Singers it is attached to the Dress Guard
