Corresponding Logo

       Described is a method to prevent attachment of
non-corresponding model number logo onto a non-matching system.  This
occurs when several different models are assembled on the same
manufacturing line.

      Presently a common logo configuration is used between a large
number of devices and systems.  The difference between each logo is
that different nomenclature (model number) for each system appears on
the logo face 1 (see the figure). Visually was the only way to assure
the model number on the logo face matches up to the matching model
system.  The addition of a particular arrangement of tenons on the
snap side about the perimeter of the logo will guarantee attachment
of the model number logo only to the identical number system.  Tenons
2, 3, shown in solid, on the logo match clearance holes 4, 5 in the
bezel 6.  By choosing tenons approximately opposite each other the
tenons also serve as a locating function in addition to the keying
function.  The tenons 7, shown in dashed lines, are illustrating the
vast number of combinations possible.
