St Matthews Newcastle has metal jockey sliders so a conventional
wooden stay engages with a horizontally sliding vertical metal pin.
These were attached to the original 19c frame and, when the bells
were rehung in a new frame in 1993, these sliders were refurbished
refitted. They work very well but make clanking noises when the
bells are set which causes some surprises to unsuspecting visiting
