  • Patent number: 5769349
    Abstract: The cable (2), at one extremity of which the connector is fixed, is wound onto the largest portion of the periphery of the drum (6) and is fixed at its other extremity to an arm (12) pivoting around the spin axis (7) of the drum (6). The spring returning the drum (6) clockwise is stronger than the one returning the arm (12) in the same direction. The pivoting arm (12) is housed in a cell (11) of the drum (6) and bears an articulated angle lever (17) whose extremity (18) is engaged in a notch (22) of the drum (6). A continuous traction ensures the full withdrawing of the cable, the drum then being kept in the corresponding "reinforced" position by the ratchet (24). At the time of disconnection, a new slight traction applied to the cable provokes the automatic disengagement of the ratchet (24) and the effective lowering of the cable (2).

  • Patent number: 4870885
    Abstract: A device is provided for carrying and releasing a load such as a missile, comprising front and rear rails for supporting respectively front and rear lugs of the load. The rails are joined together by rigid elements so as to form a mobile assembly which may move along longitudinal slides of the carrier member. This latter has fixed stops and retractable stops which cooperate with the load for preventing any translational movement thereof in the carrying position. The movement of the mobile assembly in its slides frees the load from the rails so that it may be released.
