Abstract

A simple, sturdy diskette holder that is compatible with a cleanroom environment is disclosed. Several ergonomic and functional features have been incorporated in the design. The diskette is made of a material such as stainless steel for maintenance-free use. No moving parts such as a lid are used which might be a possible source of contamination. The diskettes are inserted in the holder at the top and removed for use at a slot at the bottom to promote equal use of the diskettes. Counter sunk mounting holes are present in the side and back of the holder for mounting to a wall. Counter sinking the mounting screws prevents the diskette from catching on the screw heads. Optionally, the holder can be placed on the desktop where its upright design requires a minimum of desktop.
