Abstract

The figure shows retainer assembly 10 in both open 2 and closed 4 positions. When hinge 6 is opened, as shown by dotted lines, in section view A-A, leading edge of hinge 6 wipes logic card edges and locks cards in position eliminating the all too often "problem" of unplugged cards. Either after shipping or while installed, the cards cannot come loose until retention hinge is closed. This device is both on top of logic gate opening and on the bottom, holding cards firmly in position.
