I suppose the commonest, if that is the word, are:

Standard (with variations on the theme)
Hastings - JT&Co
Jockey - G&J, as sort of 'fixed Hastings' type
Latchet 1 - Vertical stay, horizontal latchet pivotted below bearings
Latchet 2 - Horizonatal stay, hanging slider pivotted below bearings
Pendulum - Radlett type, Full length stay, L-shaped pendulum running on a standard runner board
Standard Pendulum type as on practically all post 1969 WBF very light rings
Rolling Pin - Central stay, slider free each end; checked by suspension chains (cf Weybread as it was) or double runner-boards - favoured by Moore, Holmes & Mackenzie.

But I suppose the list is endless!

How many different types of stay and slider set ups are there and 
what are they called?
I am asking after seeing a type of slider yesterday that I had not 
seen before at Long Marston, Yorkshire (bells hung dead in a ringing 
The slider was about a foot long and the whole thing slides between 
two long slots on either side of it- is this what is called a 
shuttlebox slider?
I have a photo if anyone is interested.
