There's no auto deployment mechanism, like the Magpul MBUS.
To deploy, you manually raise them to the upper position, where a spring-loaded crossbar locks them in place in the upright position. To fold them down, you depress the button on the side of the sight, and manually lower them to the folded position.
It's a simple and robust system, with no chance of them automatically springing up if the rifle is dropped or bumped, and no chance of inadvertently folding them down if the deployed sight is knocked into something.
