having an opening to receive said sleeve, said opening being provided with an outwardly projecting flange having a notch ,therein,.a bolt within said sleeve priovided with lugs engaging said longitudinal slots therein wherebythebolt is supported for longitudinal movement within said sleeve be engaged or disengaged Jrrom said spindle,jon'e of said lugs oeing adapted to engage said notch in said escutch-l Veon plate Vwhen the bolt is retracted, a locking unit mounted within said sleeve and provided with a cam coacting with saidbolt, and a spring acting to urge saidbolt to spindle engaging'position. Y

2.' The combination of a handpiece probe made tosopen r vided with a sleeve having longitudinal slots adjacent its inner end, a spindle provided with a transversely slotted head rotatable within the inner end of said sleeve and provided with a transverse bolt receiving groove, an escutcheon plate having an opening to receive said sleeve, said opening being provided with an outwardly projecting flange having a notch therein, a bolt within said sleeve provided with lugs engaging said longitudinal slots therein whereby the bolt is supported l for longitudinal movement within said'sleeve A whereby it may be engaged or disengaged from said spindle, one of said lugs being adapted to engage said notch in s aid escutcheon plate when the bolt is retracted, and a locking unit mounted within said sleeve and operatively associated with said bolt whereby it may be moved from spindle to escutcheon engagingposition.

3. The combination of a handpiece provided with a sleeve, a spindle rotatable within the inner end of said sleeve and provided with a transverse bolt receiving groove, an escutcheon plate through which said sleeve is disposed, a boltmounted for longitudinal movement within said sleeve and adapted when in one position to engage said spindle and when in another position to release said spindle and engage said escutcheon plate, a locking unit mounted within said sleeve and provided with a cam acting to' disengage the bolt from said spindle, and a spring acting to urge said bolt to spindle engaging position.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
