Title: Lock for a trust reverser

Abstract: A lock for a thrust reverser comprising a retainer member carried by a pivot pin, the pivot pin being angularly moveable between a first position in which the retainer member retains a part of the thrust reverser and a second position in which the said part of the thrust reverser is not retained by the retainer member. The lock further comprises a lock arrangement for retaining the pivot pin in its first position, the lock arrangement comprising a lock member axially moveable between a locked position, in which it cooperates with the pivot pin to prevent movement of the pivot pin from its first position to its second position, and a retracted position, an arrangement for restricting angular movement of the lock member, and a solenoid actuator arranged to control movement of the lock member.
