Title: OUTER DOOR HANDLE, ESPECIALLY FOR VEHICLES
Abstract:
When the handle is actuated in a door handle, a lock located in the door is activated. A mass latching mechanism in the form of a pivoting member (30) should prevent actuation of the handle in case of a crash. to this end, the latching member (30) is moved from its inactivated release position to a support position (30') in which it is supported on a supporting surface (19) of the housing (10) thereby blocking the handle. In order to enhance stability under load in a reliable outer door handle, the swivel bearing (31) for the latching member (30) is positioned in the stationary housing (10). A shoulder (24) is disposed in the arm of the handle (21) which moves together with the handle, a matching shoulder (34) in the latching (30) being asigned to said shoulder. the pivoting movement of the shoulder (24) intersects the swiveling movement of the matching shoulder (34). In a case of a crash, the shoulder (24) and the mathcing shoulder (34) interlock. On the other hand, the shoulder (24) is passed by the matching shoulder (34) in an activated manner in a normal situation.
