Abstract : A compact, easily fabricated mechanism which provides a latching and unlatching function in a small volume and through a restricted access. The mechanism offers a positive detent for the latch position, and a forced movement to the unlatched position. It is operable by access through a single hole by use of a simple hexagonal stock tool. For remote actuation the mechanism provides a reliable one-time-only unlatching motion. (Author)
