Detail of the restraint system as it attaches to the restraint ring on the commander's suit in the lunar module cockpit mockup.

Picture 1 of 2.

Detail of the left side of the suit.

Also note the white, wedge-shaped hand controller armrest. One of these armrests was present on either side of each astronaut's position. They were stowed vertically but could rotate down to provide stability for operation of the thrust/translation controller assembly and the attitude controller assembly and to restrain the astronaut laterally.

Lunar Module (LM) restraint system, including cables and PGA waist restraint rings. Hand controller armrest is also visible. In the LM Cockpit Mockup at the Cradle of Aviation.
