Interlocking shafts 1

The pink pin moving in a fixed hole allows only one shaft to turn at a time. The other shaft is locked due to the engagement of its hole with the pink pin.

The mechanism is used in case the concurrent motions can cause damage.

Disadvantage: need to bring the mechanism to initial position for changing the moving shaft.
