gear handle, or Johnson Bar, locks forward into the bottom of the instrument panel for the down position.



The tricky part was the very end of the extension. The end of the bar seated into a recess in the panel, then a sliding collar on the end of the bar had to be slid up to latch it in place. Your arm would be extended straight forward, and your fist had to apply a substantial vertical force at right angles to the arm -- not something your joints are designed for.
