Abstract

This building block style single socket is for use in packaging dual-in-line modules. The sockets are provided with an interlocking arrangement of grooves and projections for attaching the sockets one to another, to afford means for customizing packages of variable size and geometric configuration. After forming a complex configuration of sockets, the package may be tied together and mounted through the use of side rails designed to interact with the socket grooves and projections.

Dual In Line Basic Building Block Sockets

This building block style single socket is for use in packaging dual-in-line modules. The sockets are provided with an interlocking arrangement of grooves and projections for attaching the sockets one to another, to afford means for customizing packages of variable size and geometric configuration. After forming a complex configuration of sockets, the package may be tied together and mounted through the use of side rails designed to interact with the socket grooves and projections.

Fig. 1 shows an end view of a single socket 1 in cross-section, with a projection 2 and a groove 3 for interlocking with other sockets. Fig. 2 shows the interconnection of "N" building block sockets in cross-section, with side rails 4 and 5 positioned at each end of the interconnected blocks to hold the clocks in position and provide a mounting means. Fig. 3 shows a customized board comprised of a group of building block sockets 1-42 in complex configuration with side rails in place.
