INSERT MOLDED LANYARD POST

by John K. Capp and Keith W. Nuetzman

   Adding a lanyard chain, clip and post or retainer to a pager has typically required substantial housing modification and multiple piece parts added to the radios, such as "e" rings, kapton and would require valuable internal space of the radio.

Using Only the thickness of the polycarbonate housing, a lanyard post or any other surface feature can be added to a product.

   In the molding process of the housing this is achieved by holding the lanyard post in place in the housing wall by providing a hole on the inside surface of the wall. A small boss on the rear of the post is used to hold the post in place during molding. A slide collar is used on the front face of the wall to provide the clearance hole for the split ring of the chain to fasten. A mold release can be used to allow for rotation if required.

The resulting product will provide a low profile, secure and statically isolated means of attachment for a lanyard chain and clip. See attached drawing showing implementation of lanyard into housing.
