Based on the concepts of instant centers and kinematic inversion, a method is proposed to determine the stationary configurations of planar linkage mechanisms. All stationary configurations of six-bar kinematic chains are determined and listed. Quadruple stationary configurations are found in the six-bar chains, and one of them is applied as a nose landing gear.
