    I will see how I can tighten the screw, if possible without tool

    Looks very similar to the kitfox folding wing system Laurent, if your not familiar with that plane it may be worth looking on utube to see how the kitfox wings attach to the rear of the fuselage eliminating the need to lift your wings over the tail, the kitfox can be towed in the wing folded configuration.

    No, they don't overlap. Not at all the same device

    Hi Laurent,

    An interesting idea, but as Madam Breakneck mentions the load is taken on the fastener thread and may not be acceptable. Maybe with a slight redesign, the ball joints could be retained to use as the wing fold pivots, but additional structural brackets with pins in shear could lock the wings in place and take the aerodynamic loads. That could allow your design to work and get off the ground
    Comfortably Numb......
