Description:
A restraining mechanism of an adjustable work table is disclosed for releasably restraining movement of a movable member of the table relative to a stationary member of the table. The restraining mechanism includes a clamping portion connected to one of the movable and stationary members, and a spring portion connected to the clamping portion for forcing the clamping means against the other of the movable and stationary members and thereby restraining movement of the movable member relative to the stationary member. The restraining mechanism further includes a pivot portion attached to the one of the movable and stationary members, and a lever arm portion, pivotably cooperating with the pivot, for contacting the clamping portion during pivotal motion of the lever arm portion and thereby operating against the bias of the spring portion to reduce the force applied through the clamping portion to the other of the movable and stationary members, to allow movement of the movable member relative to the stationary member.
