Hi all, I hope I'm posting this in the correct area, it is my first post.

I've decided to make my kids a kind of table football table. The intention is that it will have a goal at each end protected by pinball table style flippers. Does that make sense?

Anyway, the circuit for the flippers is very basic but my question is, is there something I can use to attach the flippers to which will flip up and stay up when the button is pressed and then go back down when it is released?

Is there a name for the thing I am trying (very badly) to describe?

Thank you for any help!

Dave

You are looking for either a solenoid or a linear actuator.
