Abstract (en)

The arrangement has bolt or fork-shaped closure element (15) movable by a drive arrangement (2) against the force of a sprin (17) from an unlocked to a locked position, whereby the closure element pulls the door closed. The drive gearbox contains a cam wheel (5) with a control cam (7) eccentric to the central axis. A pivotable closure element bearer (12) is connected to a coupli element (9) movable by the cam and with an elongated hole (10) engaged by a journal (13). Displacement of the coupling element causes the closure element to pivot. The length of the hole is selected so that the closure element in the unlocked position is manually movable into its locking position without hindrance by the control cam.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft eine Vorrichtung zum Verschließen einer mit einem Türschloß versehenen Fahrzeugtür, Motorhaube, Kofferraumdeckel, Heckklappe o.dgl., wobei die Vorrichtung (1) ein auf einem Trägerteil (12;31) angeordnetes bolzen- oder bügelförmiges Schließelement (15;29) umfaßt, und wobei das Schließelement (15;29) einerseits mit Hilfe einer einen Antriebsmotor (3) mit nachgeschaltetem Getriebe (4) enthaltenden Antriebseinrichtung (2) gegen den Druck mindestens einer Feder (17) von einer Ent- in eine Verriegelungsstellung bewegbar ist und andererseits in der Entriegelungsstellung durch eine dem Türschloß zugeordnete schwenkbare Gabelfalle (16) ungreifbar ist, so daß das Schließelement (15;29) bei seiner Bewegung in die Verriegelungsstellung über die Gabelfalle (16) die Fahrzeugtür in deren geschlossene Stellung zieht. Um eine einfache und platzsparende Vorrichtung (1) zu erhalten, schlägt die Erfindung vor, das Trägerteil (12;31) des Schließelementes (15;29) verschwenkbar auszugestalten, wobei das Verschwenken des Trägerteiles (12;31) mittels eines Koppelelementes (9) bewirkt wird, welches durch einen exzentrischen Steuernocken (7) eines Nockenrades (5) verschiebbar ist. <IMAGE>
