Paper Tray Latch With Page-End Indicator

       This article describes a design for an Automatic Sheet
Feed Device that attaches to a Wheelwriter* Series II Typewriter
having a latch that allows for manual paper loading.

      The figure shows latch design for typewriter sheet feed device.
 Latch snaps onto paper insert tray and pivots at surface A, allowing
part to rotate about axis B.  Contact with ground at integral spring
C rotates part in direction D, providing bias force for latch back
surface E.  Tab F serves only as a paper guide.  Corrugated surface
at G provides grip surface for manual operation.

      With the extension of surface H and addition of surface J which
provides support and location for page-end indication graphics K, the
need and cost of a separate part for this function is not needed.

      The purpose of this design is to eliminate the need of two
separate parts.
