Explanation: This term is found in medicine (differed scarification or closure) where it is not advisable to close a wound, and in maintenance and vehicles when one characteristic of the machinery is that it will not close automatically until several seconds later, when it has been confirmed that no other movements have been made to open it. In cars, this allows you unload without repeatedly having to unlock the door.
