What keeps the bolt in the locked position?

A quick learner says:
What keeps the 80-013 bolt from falling/unlocking if someone jiggles the door a little bit? In other words, what keeps the bolt up?

There is a flat spring between the housing and slide bolt that gives it pressure. If you need any further help, you can send in pictures and we'll see how we can help.
