by Partha S. Dutta and Keith W. Nuetzman

  In paging market the lanyard chain is an option. the retainer will be flush with the housing wall in this However, so far lanyard retainers are added to ail pagers position. The retainer can be pulled out and locked in irrespective of customers' preference to use or not use extended position with fingernail or any tool (such as this feature. In many cases pager arc carried in pouches pencil/pen). The chain can be attached/detached to/from or other holding cases. The fxed lanyard retainer (when the retainer only in the extended position. In addition, not being used) provides an uneven cosmetic appcar- the retainer allows for 360 degree rotation thereby solv- ante, also acts as an inconvenience for insertion and ing chain entanglement problem and providiig added extraction from the pouch. convenience to the customer.

  This concept of telescopic lanyard post will solve the above mentioned problem. When the lanyard chain is not being used the customer can push the retainer into the housing and lock it. According to this design

  The lanyard retainer is made as a two piece sub- assembly-a post, and a receptacle. This sub-assembly is insert molded into the housing wall. This alIows for strong retention and static protection.
