Abstract : A parachute uncoupling lock is described, consisting of an aneroid-time mechanism; a trigger apparatus which contains a guide with a spring-actuated bushing; a drive apparatus containing a cylindrical plunger with a stop tooth; and an operating mechanism equipped with hooks for engaging the eye ring of a parachute, a lever transmission, and a fork having a stop guide. In order to heighten the reliability of action, in it the trigger apparatus is equipped with a spring-actuated guide which has at one end a projection upon which the end plane of the plunger of the drive mechanism operates, and at the other end a lug attached by a fork to the stop guide of the operating mechanism.
