Earthquake Resistant Design for Mid/Small Size Computers

      Disclosed is an Earthquake resistant device for Mid/Small size
computer installed on Non-raised floor which has a set of holes or
has Non casters at the bottom of Frame.  Leveling fixtures or Corner
frames assembled on leveler tighten computer frame by screws or belts
for preventing move and fall down against a seismic wave.

      Fig. 1 shows the sample of earthquake resistant leveler with
levering fixtures which is driven into a set of holes at the bottom
of frame.  Leveling fixture which adjusts a space between bottom of
frame and floor is designed to simplify assembly at a system frame.

      Fig. 2 shows the sample of earthquake resistant leveler with
corner frame which tightens frame by belts.  four corner frames are
attached at the four bottom corners of a system frame.

      Both types of leveler is attached to floor by adhesive to
simplify the installation construction and free from a dust under
construction.
