Multifunction Item Delivery Tray

A multifunction delivery tray provides a transport for articles from sources 40, 42, 44 to delivery station of vending machine 30 and provides a lockable protective cover for customer control panel 20.

Tray 10, 11 is mounted to base 30 at pivot 12. When in the in-position 10', 11', the tray receives articles from sources 40, 42, 44 through dispensers 41, 43,
45. In this position, the customer may operate control panel 20. When in out- position 10, 11, the tray prevents operation of panel 20, and any articles in the tray may be removed by the customer.

The delivery tray is equipped with a two-way latch, not shown, such that it may be locked in either the in-position 10', 11' or the out-position 10, 11.
