It is a click mechanism part that incorporates the principles of bearing clutch. Although the damping direction can be either clockwise or counter-clockwise, one side is always locked and the other damping direction is in a free state. For example, when opening and closing a lid on a piece of furniture, such as the one shown below, the lid is in a free state when it is lifted up to open, and a lock torque is applied in the closing direction the lid can be locked in at any angle. To close the lid, applying a small amount of force will release the lock, allowing the lid to close.
|Diagram 1 :
When a lid is lifted, a locking torque is applied in the closing direction, and the lid can be locked in at any position.
|Diagram 2 :
When pressure is applied to the lid in a closing direction, the reverse lock is released and the lid can close freely.
