Invented in 1955 by Marcel Opinel, the Virobloc circlip is installed on all locking knives of no. 06. Cut from stainless steel, the Virobloc is made up of two parts: a fixed part and a sliding part. In addition to locking the sash in the open position (safety in use), it is now possible to lock the sash in the closed position (transport safety).
