The challenge

Client wanted to be able to pass a child’s feeding tube through the cot ends, this allows the child to turn without getting entangled in the feed tube which is the difficulty if the tube is passed over the cot sides. A small section of the cot side top was removed and a swinging section made to bridge the gap, a locking mechanism was devised so that lifting the removable section required two hands or sufficient dexterity only possible by an adult.
