Cover

The apparatus transfers control between ends of a drawer 10 for its opening. The drawers contain disk file unite which are opened either by a customer from the front or by a field engineer from the rear for servicing.

The field engineer has access to lever 11 which accomplishes the transfer of control. When lever 11 is pulled down, it engages spring 12 which holds the front cabinet cover 13 against drawer 10. Front handle 14 is mounted on drawer 10 and extends through cover 13. Handle 14 thus allows the drawer and attached cover 13 to be pulled forward end opened by the customer.

With drawer 10 closed, the field engineer can raise lever 11 to transfer spring 12 to pin 15 at the back of the cabinet. Spring 12 holds cover 13 against the cabinet and no longer engages lever 11. Spring 12 thus no longer holds the cover to the drawer 10. The latter is now free to be moved to the rear, bringing handle 14 with it. Thus, there is no way to obtain access from the front.
