Click photos to enlarge

Full-length view of the left slider and pivot latch with the playfield all the way down in playing position. Here the playfield is raised and its grab rails are resting on the top edge of the front of the cabinet (service position). First step of the pivot latch sequence.  Playfield is being pulled out in preparation for upright position.
     
Playfield pulled out a little more... Playfield pulled out as far as it will go, ready to lift up. Starting to lift it to upright.  This causes the latch to pivot and trap the rear bolt post.
     
 
Here it is about halfway up... Full upright position.
