Both the 1879 and the 1888 editions also name something called a "pull-iron" (item 58 in their list of terms) but I do not see it any of the diagrams.  I would be interested to learn what item on the car this refers to.
From the definition in the 1879 CBD I would suspect this later became the "roping staple".
