  • Publication number: 20200080351
    Abstract: A device for unlocking a door lock associated with a door handle mounted in order to slide in an aperture in the door between an inoperative position wherein the handle is flush with the door and an operative position wherein the handle projects from the door includes a cylinder supported by a holder directly or indirectly attached to the door. The cylinder is connected to an element for unlocking the lock via a part for moving the lock unlocking element, and the cylinder is mounted in the part in order to extend towards the handle at an angle to a direction normal to the door. In one form, the angle is sufficient to allow the cylinder to be introduced into the housing when the handle is in the operative position.
