With the aid of the geometrical surface described by the relative motion of a spatial link dyad, rules are derived for the determination of type (crank-and-rocker, drag link, and double rocker) of the skew four-bar mechanism. The results are closely related to Grashof’s rule for plane four-bar linkages.
