1. A lockable retainer assembly adapted for retaining or releasing a panel having an edge by preventing or allowing movement of the edge, said lockable retainer assembly comprises:
(a) a retainer assembly comprising:
(i) a retainer having a rocker pivotably connected about a pivot disposed at a portion of the edge, said rocker having a slot and said rocker is configured to protrude into a path of movement of the panel when said rocker is rotatably disposed in a relaxed position and said rocker is configured to clear said path of movement of the panel when said rocker is rotatably disposed in a depressed position; and
(ii) at least one spring configured to urge against said rocker to dispose said rocker in one of said relaxed position of said rocker and said depressed position of said rocker; and
(b) a lock assembly comprising:
(i) a button configured to travel in a path within said slot, said button having a cavity;
(ii) at least one spring configured to urge against said button in said path to dispose said button in one of a relaxed position and a depressed position;
(iii) a seat; and
(iv) a lever pivotably connected to said rocker at a pivot, said lever having a protrusion disposed about said pivot of said lever on a first end of said lever and a block disposed about said pivot of said lever on a second end of said second member, wherein said protrusion is configured to be disposed within said cavity,
whereby when said button is urged against said second member, said lever is rotated about said pivot of said lever to clear said seat and allowing said retainer to be disposed in said depressed position of said retainer to allow movement of the at least one edge and when said button is relieved from urging against said second member, said lever is disposed in a position to be seated on said seat to return said retainer to said relaxed position of the retainer and prevent movement of the at least one edge.
