Abstract : The device retains the ejection seat arm/dearm lever in safe position to allow the seat to be tilted safely for required maintenance and repair work. A bolt positioned through a clearance hole in an inverted U-shaped base member engages threads in the ejection seat structure. An upstanding brace extends upward from one end of the base member at an angle to abut the seat ejection arming lever to physically block and prevent its movement into the armed position. The bolt is retained in the base member by a cotter pin through the body of the bolt under the head to allow turning while preventing separation from the base. (Author)
