Automatic Opening Umbrella Operated by Push Button on the Bottom of the Handle

Automatic Opening Umbrella Operated by Push Button on the Bottom of the Handle

(OP)
If you can help me solve this problem I will name my pet chinchilla after you.

I am incorporating a similar locking mechanism to that found in an automatic opening umbrella that unlocks with push of button, the catch is that I need a umbrella in which the push button is in the same line of travel as the collapsing shaft - in other words I need a automatic opening umbrella operated by push button located on the bottom of the handle - not the side as shown in the attached picture.

dvd - thank you I will be able to complete a functional prototype, however it would be great to have a similar mechanism (see quick video demonstration "Link" and picture) that's not $25 a pop and could be viably mass manufactured. Any recommendations?

If you cannot extrapolate from the quick release pin to what you need, then I probably can't help you.

Why are you trying to reinvent the wheel?

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)
