The spring tension in the shifter itself would have to be greater than that in the combined pegs to prevent them from shifting the clutch back.
I think that's exactly how it works. I spent some time looking at the pics today and came to the same conclusion - considering that, it was quite an amount of nonsense what I wrote in post #3
