Hinged Mounting for Circuit Boards

Printed-circuit boards must sometimes be mounted in areas where accessibility for insertion, removal or servicing is difficult.

Circuit board 10 plugs into socket 11 on a base 12 which also carries cable sockets 13 for connection to other units. Bracket 14 on one end of base 12 is secured to two-motion link 15 by pin 16.

Another pin 17 secures link 15 to bracket 18. Arm 19 is fixedly mounted to a case, not shown.

Base 12 is first rotated in direction 20 until slot 21 lines up with tab 22 inside link 15. Base 12 may then be rotated in direction 23. During rotation in the latter direction, slot 21 and tab 22 prevent any rotation in direction 20.
