The inventive turn-lock fastener should be designed in such a way that it can be easily inserted into a base plate (1) and can be easily removed therefrom. To this end, the turn-lock fastener (2) and the base plate (1) are interconnected in an articulated manner via a turning joint (1.3, 1.4) in such a way that the turn-lock fastener (2) can be pivotally folded down like a flap to the base plate (1) and can thereby be locked with the same or the turn-lock fastener can be folded away from the base plate and can thereby be unlocked from the same.

Description

The present invention relates to a rotary closure, in particular for shoes, according to the preamble of claim 1.

Such a rotary closure is known from EP 0 351 653 A2. A Similar solution is shown in DE 93 12 197 U1.

The solution according to the latter document is a Turn-lock with an eccentric gear. On which the eccentric gear receiving housing part is formed on the circumference as a lever through a spring in the locking direction biased locking element pivotally mounted. This locking element engages with a locking member under bias in each case one of a variety of recesses on the outer edge of a Operating position non-rotatable toothed disc and locks these in their Operating or gearbox position. Via an externally actuated drawstring can the other lever arm pivoted against the spring action and the Detent element are pulled out of the respective recess. Thereby The toothed disc is freely rotatable and thus the rotary closure very fast too open without having to turn the handle of the screw cap. in this connection the rotary closure is inserted into a housing part and with this practical permanently locked.

An eccentric gear, on its operation here is expressly referred to, is in the German Patent DE 42 40 916 C1 described.

It is also known, a rotary closure with a transmission to design in the manner of a planetary gear. Here too the construction may be designed to be a fixed one Disc locked in operating position and in order Quick release of the closure via a quick release agent is made freely rotatable.

With the present invention, the problem is solved be, a rotary closure of the type mentioned so to make it easy to put in a base plate and again easily removed from it. Above all, it should create the opportunity a quick release of the screw cap in a simple Way to perform.

This problem is solved by the features of the claim 1.

According to the invention, when folding the rotary closure a quick release agent, such as a slider, in blocked a position in which it is a member of the drive between turning handle and winding device in an in Operating position holds position fixed position. In folded away Position, however, is the high-speed excipient movable, that the locking of the position-fixed member canceled and the winding device decoupled from the drive is. This eliminates the at the beginning mentioned Twist lock required with quick release of the clamping element Spring for the quick release link and that required drawstring. In addition, the rotary closure remains even when unintentionally digging from its base plate still so connected with this, that a light and safe replacement by a simple swivel movement is possible.
