Abstract : The patent concerns a detent device that is applicable to rocket launch systems where the rockets must be positively retained on the launcher prior to the time of launch. The device engages a detent groove in the rocket and restrains the rocket from any forward motion until launch at which time a cam lifts the detent out of the groove thereby releasing the rocket.
