Title: HINGE FOR A HINGED COVER OF A VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a hinge (10) for a hinged cover of a vehicle. Said hinge comprises an upper hinge part (12) mounted to the cover side and a lower hinge part (14) mounted to the vehicle body, said hinge parts being interconnected by means of a first kinematic lever (20) and a second kinematic lever (60). According to the invention, a first locking device (40), in a working position, enables a rotational movement of the second kinematic lever (20), and in a pedestrian protection position, blocks the rotational movement of the second kinematic lever (20), the first locking device (40) comprising a tong-type main body (43) with a guide mount (44) in which a guiding pin (22) of the second kinematic lever (20) is guided, and being coupled to a locking and/or unlocking lever (50) by means of a connecting lever (30). In the case of an accident, the locking and/or unlocking lever (50) moves the first locking device (40) from the working position to the pedestrian protection position by means of the connecting lever (30).
