Ratchet & Pawl Mechanism

Question asked by Diego Munoz on Oct 27, 2010

I have a ratchet and a pawl on a shaft. In an assembly is there a way to have the pawl ride freely and fall into the dip between the teeth of the ratchet when the ratchet turns counter clockwise? And if it turns clockwise the pawl will lock in the dip between the ratchet's teeth. Thank you.
