General Information
The fulcrum clip sleeve was used at the housing stop where the cable exited the housing to continue as a bare cable to the hub. These were made of steel until the early 1960s when plastic was used thereafter. Unfortunately, the plastic fulcrum clip sleeves deteriorate over time and eventually fail, causing loss of shifting and inability to shift out of top gear.

Brand Information(click to expand)
 Best known for the internal geared (planetary gearing) hub, Sturmey Archer is another one of the most recognized brands in cycling.  The company has been bought and sold several times since it's origins, and at some time was owned by the same parent company as both Brooks and Raleigh.  The company is still in business (well, the name is still in use anyways), and there are still internal geared hubs produced today with the Sturmey Archer name.
