I am trying to understand, in detail, what is going on inside. What components are involved and interacting. A cross-section view would be very useful. Seems like there are springs and ball bearing involved but I'm not sure.

You're right, the system operates with spring and ball.
And as pointed out this system is easily found searching using terms like "spring ball release mechanism" or derivatives.

Here's one image with a quick search (found on the third result on images from patent for a similar mechanism) link: https://patents.google.com/patent/US9431162B2/en

Edit: Link: https://patents.google.com/patent/US9431162B2/en

This patent is for a solenoid system (not exactly the same as the button as pointed out).

  • $\begingroup$ All the same, it would be helpful to describe exactly how #142 holds the pin in place until exterior forces on #150 exceed some value. This drawing seems to depend on gravity for the latching mech to work. $\endgroup$ Jul 5, 2022 at 12:30
