Abstract

Considerable electronic equipment comprises printed circuits mounted in swinging panels or gates. To prevent the movement of such gates while being worked on, a stay member, such as illustrated, is provided. A tube 10 provided with a hinge joint 11 is secured to the frame of a cabinet 12. Secured to the gate 14 by a hinge member 15 is a rod 16 fitted into the tube 10. A Z shaped slot 17 is cut in the tube and is engaged by a pin 18 in the rod 16. The gate may be swung to two positions, the first being at about 45 degrees. This moves the pin 18 along one leg of slot 17 to portion 20 where it prevents further movement of the gate.

Gate Stay

Considerable electronic equipment comprises printed circuits mounted in swinging panels or gates. To prevent the movement of such gates while being worked on, a stay member, such as illustrated, is provided. A tube 10 provided with a hinge joint 11 is secured to the frame of a cabinet 12. Secured to the gate 14 by a hinge member 15 is a rod 16 fitted into the tube 10. A Z shaped slot 17 is cut in the tube and is engaged by a pin 18 in the rod 16. The gate may be swung to two positions, the first being at about 45 degrees. This moves the pin 18 along one leg of slot 17 to portion 20 where it prevents further movement of the gate. To swing to a 90 degree position, the rod 16 is turned moving the pin 18 through the portion 20 into alignment with the other leg of the slot 17, thus permitting the rod to be further withdrawn from the tube 10.
