Thumb safeties are found on many rifles and are also called sliding safeties. The thumb safety is generally located on the right side of the receiver and is engaged and disengaged by sliding it forward and back. On many firearms, the slide or thumb safety has three positions, off, on and intermediate. The intermediate safety position is used to allow the action to be cycled safely while loading or unloading the firearm, as when the safety is engaged the bolt is locked.
