Abstract : The patent relates to a mechanism whereby an elongated pendant support is secured to a rotatable table. The table is arranged to pivot 180 degrees between either of two positions, a battery position and a down position. In the battery position the pendant support is raised above the runway surface. In the down position, the pendant support is withdrawn into a subsurface housing and the table forms the roof of the housing with the upper surface of the table positioned flush with respect to a surrounding runway surface. A locking pin controlled by a cam secures the table in either the battery position or the down position.
