Friction One-Way Linear Clutch

Pull blue table to bring it higher.
At the pause position of the table, the pink latch is slanting to the table post. The table can move only in direction that tends to make the latch more slanting i.e. the up direction.
For moving in the down direction press the latch outer end to separate the latch from the table post, the table falls down by its weight.
