Handle-Retention Device for Disk Array Controller System

      Card insertion/extraction handles are positively retained in a
uniform position by a latching mechanism that guides the handles into
position and tactily grasps and retains them.  The handles are
released by finger grip pressure.

      Claws (1) capture handle ends (2) by flexing inward until
handle ends (2) clear capture hooks (3).  Leaf springs (4) hold
handles in constant position against capture hooks (3) and drive
handles (2) clear of capture hooks (3) when inward finger pressure is
applied at grip ribs (5).
