Abstract : The patent application relates to a disconnectable link for a mechanical control system such as an aircraft flight control system enabling remote decoupling and engagement of secondary flight controls from primary controls at a primary control station during emergency conditions. An electrically or fluid activated rod is moved longitudinally against the force of a spring, and a cam mounted on the rod disengages detent balls linking a sleeve member to an extension member.
