  • Patent number: 9428936
    Abstract: A lock that is inserted and fixed in a receiving body of a motor vehicle is disclosed. The lock includes a stator inside which a rotor rotatably moves. The stator is fixed to the receiving body and includes a cover plate of the rotor fixed to the front face of the stator, where the cover plate has an opening for a key. There is also an anti-pull-out mechanism borne by said cover plate and the stator to fix the cover plate to the stator and to retain the rotor axially in the stator. The anti-pull-out mechanism blocks the cover plate axially on the stator by the positioning of the cover plate and its subsequent pivoting on the stator into an assembled position.
