Seek Aeolian Pedal Latch
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  I'm not sure of the name of this part, but it holds the
foot pedals up on the Themodist exhauster assembly.  It's similar
in design to the [clock-spring steel] catch that's used to hold
a bottom board in place in an upright piano.

What I need to know are the dimensions of the piece so I can make
a replacement piece for an assembly I'm restoring.  (It was missing
when I received the assembly.)  A picture would be nice too... :-)

Thank you for any help.
