Ever wondered #2

What the inside of a SafeGuard LATCH anchor looks like?

They sound quite loud without the plastic covering. The spring attached to small metal bar pushes the center metal hook up and over the vehicle LATCH bar, and depressing the red button causes the metal circular pin to move forward and pull the hook upward to release. Neat to look at! All the red parts are plastic, and the spring isn't very stiff, but nevertheless I played with it a fair bit without the covering and, as an engineering student, cannot see any way within the perimeters of normal use that any parts would dislodge (this has always worried me a bit.. haha).
