Does anyone have a photo, or drawing, of the lever used to lock the springs in Fender's outboard reverb? Many thanks-

I think everyone here would really appreciate some pictures and maybe any info on this device you might have. I don't think these were very common but I wish I would have known about these years ago I definitely would have had couple of them. Are these still available?I can take a picture and post next Friday if nobody else steps up.
I have an original and stock vintage reverb in the bag and your telling me it has one of these devices built into it from the factory.They are standard in fender reverb units, vintage and reissue. The reverb pan is attached to the front baffle of the reverb unit , suspended by 4 springs.
There is an L shaped arm that when pushed forward and then to the right locks the pan against the baffle board.
The parts are available. I'll try and get pics up tomorrow.
That certainly makes sense but what about amps like the Bandmaster Reverb and Dual Showman Reverb. Their reverbs were mounted sideways to the backside of the front grill.Fender Stand-Alone Reverb units had the locking mechanism because the tanks are mounted sideways to the front panel and suspended by 4 springs and sort-of free-floating. They bang around alot when you transport them unless you lock them down and are probably easily
damaged by rough transport when unlocked.
