Croatian term or phrase: Skretnićki zatvarač
Skretnićki zatvarač je dio prijevodničkog uređaja skretnice koji osigurava položaj prijevodnica prema pripadajućim glavnim naležnim tračnicama (priljubljeni i odljubljeni položaj). Na taj se način osigurava postavljeni smjer vožnje pri prolasku vlaka i sprječava neovlašteno samovoljno mijenjanje položaja prijevodnica.

Tamo gdje se skretnice prebacuju ručno koriste se skretničke brave koje se pričvršćuju na glavnu tračnicu blizu vrha jezička. Zaključavaju se ključem uz izvučenu polugu iz brave koja se prislanja na odmaknuti jezičak. Skretnica se tada ne može samovoljno ili slučajno prebaciti u suprotni položaj sve dok se brava ne otključa. Postoji više tipova skretničkih brava (mehaničke, elektromagnetske).
