Abstract

See full text

The present invention provides a mechanism for guiding and controlling the movement of a sliding panel relative to a fixed panel. The mechanism comprises a shaft attached to the sliding panel that passes through an elongate opening in a bracket attached to the fixed panel. Disposed about the shaft is a brake that is normally urged against the bracket by a spring member, thereby fixing the position of the sliding panel. Also disposed about the shaft is an actuating member that, when actuated, releases the contact between the brake and the bracket, allowing the sliding member to move along the path defined by the elongate opening.
