Default Did Maytag use Tritt buzz coils

I read that Maytag uprights used buzz coils with knife switches but it was unsettled as to exactly how many different makers were used.

Was Tritt used?

Fair chance it was. I think the Detroit was more commonly used. The Quick Action coil is more rarely seen.
