Self Sealing Crashstop for Direct Access Storage Device Enclosure

      The following invention details features that allow a crashstop
to seal itself into a disk enclosure, preventing leak paths, while
minimizing the force required to press it in place.

      As shown in the Figure, the crashstop utilizes a thin flat
section 1 which, when inserted in the casting hole, cones up much
like a dish.  The lead-in 2 allows easy insertion of the crashstop,
and keeps it centered within the hole.
