A Take-up Bearing Housing is provided which allows easy removal of a bearing block supported by the bearing take up apparatus. Two slotted end walls extend from a base to support the threaded rod used with the bearing block and to prevent lateral movement of the rod.
A covering piece has holes in one of its ends, which line up with a hole in an end wall. A through bolt secures the covering piece to at least one of the slotted enwalls via holes in the enwalls, so that the through bolt forms a hinge for the cover piece, when the other end of the covering piece is released. The threaded rod can be lifted and the bearing removed, when the cover piece is hinged upwards, about the through bolt. The cover piece includes components to hold the threaded rod down when the cover piece is secured at both of its ends.
