  • a rail;

    a first stop coupled to the rail;

    a second stop coupled to the rail, the second stop being pivotable between a first position and a second position and having a cam surface shaped to define first and second camming surface portions such that the distance between the first stop and the first camming surface portion of the second stop when the second stop is in the first position is greater than the distance between the first stop and the second camming surface portion of the second stop when the second stop is in the second position;

    a wedge member slidingly carried by the rail between the first stop and the second stop and mechanically coupled to the second camming surface of the second stop so as to be actuated by the second stop, the rail and wedge member being configured such that the wedge member is substantially prevented from rotating about the rail.
