Quick Disconnect/Locking/Locating Stud

This connector will connect a pallet 10 to a tray 12 with a minimum of clearance.

The pallet 10 is placed over the tray 12 and has holes 14 which are positioned over the expandable jaws of a collet 16 secured to the tray. A finger- operated cam 18 is inserted between the jaws of the collet expanding them so that they lock against the side walls of the holes 14 holding the pallet 10 securely. When the pallet 10 is to be removed, the finger-operated cam 18 is pulled out of the jaws so the jaws flex back to their original position, permitting the pallet 10 to be lifted.
