    pivot shutter closure (for hatch)

    Good time of day.

    Please, help.

    I can't imagine what's "pivot shutter closure" (for hatch).

    Is it a simple door-like mechanism.
    Or does "pivot shutter" mean any locking device (pivot based).

    I understand, this is a technical term.

    Can you help? Web links and/or images would be appreciated.

    LOTR, this is a forum to help with language problems, not technical terms..

    I googled the first three words you gave me, and found a lot of information - and pictures. If I can do it, you can.

    ps You are getting too fast, bhai.

    Re: pivot shutter closure (for hatch)

    Certainly, I googled it many times, but that only disorientated me.
    Usually, I get to form asking as a last resort.

    "pivot shutter closure" search returned nothing.
    Pairs search (such as "pivot shutter") returned pictures of cameras, models of trucks, chinese window manufacturers, patents blah blah etc (nothing of importance).

    Does "pivot shutter" mean anything in everyday life?

    I guess, it means a simple flap, does it?

    Sorry for bothering...
