Title: QUICK DISCONNECT APPARATUS FOR MODULAR TOOLING
Abstract:
A modular tooling receiver (110) includes a housing (130) having a wall (138) and a port (144), and an engaging member (160) movably disposed in the port. A lock actuator (150) is moveable between a first position and a second position. The release lever (116) is connected to the housing and is engageable with the lock actuator for causing movement of the lock actuator from the first position toward the second position. An anti-release mechanism (417) is connected to the release lever and is movable between an engaged position, in which the anti-release mechanism engages the housing to restrain movement of the release lever to prevent movement of the lock actuator from the first position to the second position, and a disengaged position, in which the anti-release mechanism disengages the housing to allow movement of the release lever.
