Beautiful revolver! I don't have much experience with Colts, so forgive me if this is a dumb question, but what's the purpose of the checkering on the 'knob' at the end of the cylinder latch?

I know that the latch is spring-loaded, and pulls away from the cylinder to unlatch it, but the checkering seems like it would only be useful for pushing the latch forward, toward the cylinder.
