Figure 1.10 Typical snap-action, toggle, or flip-flop mechanisms used for switches, clamps, or fasteners. The
elements of a mechanism are always numbered beginning with 1 for the base or frame and 2 for the input or
driving element. The mechanism of part (a) is bistable; that of (b) is a true toggle.
