Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention is directed to a latching system that includes a latch assembly, a cup, and a keeper plate. The latch assembly includes a base, a lever, and a catch. The lever is pivotally connected to the base and the catch is pivotally connected to the lever. The base is pivotally attached to the cup such that it rotates about an axis of rotation that is perpendicular in direction in relation to the direction of the axis of rotation of the lever relative to the base. The keeper plate includes a keeper projection. The lever can be lifted and the latch assembly rotated about the axis of rotation of the base to clear the keeper from the catch and thereby allow the opening of a first closure member relative to a second closure member.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système de verrouillage qui comprend un ensemble de verrou, une coupelle et une gâche. L'ensemble de verrou comprend une base, un levier et un pêne. Le levier est raccordé en pivot à la base et le pêne est raccordé en pivot au levier. La base est raccordée en pivot à la coupelle de telle manière qu'elle puisse tourner autour d'un axe de rotation perpendiculaire par rapport à l'axe de rotation du levier relativement à la base. La gâche comprend un élément en projection. Le levier peut être levé et l'ensemble de verrou pivoter autour de l'axe de rotation de la base afin de retirer la gâche du pêne et ainsi permettre l'ouverture d'un premier élément de fermeture par rapport à un second élément de fermeture.
