Abstract : The patent describes an assembly for trapping air, nitrogen or other gas under atmospheric pressure to create a sealing pressure on a lid of a vacuum chamber carried by a missile. The gas is trapped between the lid and a cover secured to the vacuum chamber by latch means. When the designated space environment is reached a valve is energized to release the sealing pressure and equalize the pressures on opposite sides of the cover for easy opening of the latches.
