Slim Detachable Cover

      Disclosed is a Slim Detachable Cover (1) which does not require
much space for detaching operation by using principles of a lever.

      Fig. 1 shows the shape of the Slim Detachable Cover (1).
Fig. 2 shows its detaching operation.  A knurl area (2) is pushed and
slid, so it is unlatched and the cover (1) is raised up by using
principles of a lever.  Because the distance between a fulcrum (3)
and a point of the force acted on the area (2) is shorter than the
distance between the fulcrum (3) and a point of action (4), the cover
(1) is raised a lot by a slight intrusion.

      Since this mechanism minimizes the space, this can be
applicable for all detachable cover mechanisms.
