Title
(EN) A LOCKING ELEMENT AND A PARACHUTE ASSEMBLY USING SAME
(FR) ELEMENT DE VERROUILLAGE ET ENSEMBLE PARACHUTE UTILISANT CET ELEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a locking element (9) made of spring wire. The locking element is built up of at least one bent portion (10), which ends in two intersecting legs (11, 12), which join said bent portion at least substantially tangentially. The legs extend substantially in a straight line. The two legs include an angle of at least 50° with each other in unloaded condition of the locking element.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un élément de verrouillage (9) fait d'un fil de ressort. L'élément de verrouillage est fait d'au moins une partie recourbée (10) qui se prolonge sensiblement tangentiellement par deux branches intersectrices (11, 12). Les branches, qui sont chacune sensiblement droites, forment entre elles un angle d'au moins 50° en l'absence de charge de l'élément de verrouillage.
