Title: JEWELLERY FASTENING MECHANISM
Abstract:
A jewellery fastening mechanism (10), shown in the form of a clasp, has a gate (12) with a free end (18) with a notch (19) which can be automatically locked within the body (11) when the end (18) is inserted into the aperture (14), but which can then be released by pressing a release mechanism, the actuator for which is accessible through an aperture (13) in the side of the body (11). A single-handed operation is, therefore, all that is required for locking and release.
