|Horizontal Split Cover Grid Coupling|
Horizontal covers are designed for ease of assembly and removal, particularly in tight spaces, as they can be put on after the hubs and grid spring element have been already assembled.
Vertical split cover designs, require putting the split covers on the shaft prior to putting on the shaft hubs and grid spring element. Once the hubs and grid spring element have been attached, the vertical split covers can then slid over the hubs and grid spring element and fastened together. (This also means that to completely remove a vertical split cover off a shaft, the grid spring element and coupling hubs would have to first be removed.)
