    Abstract: The releasable locking arrangement for two components consists of a hook-connecting element arranged on a first component (10) and a spring-loaded locking hook (26) with swivelling axis (22) arranged on a second component (20). The locking hook (21) and the hook-connecting element can be connected with one another to form the lock. The hook-connecting element on the first component (10) is a retaining rod (11) whose ends are movable in a guide track (12, 12?). The swivelling axis (22) of the locking hook (21) on the second component (20) is connected with a holder (27). The holder (27) has a sliding bevel (24-S, 25-S) for the retaining rod (11). When the two components (10, 20) approach one another, the retaining rod (11) slides upwards on the sliding bevel (24-S, 25-S) of the holder. This causes the retaining rod to move in its guide track (12, 12?) at the same time.
