Safty Latch for Vertical Stand

      Disclosed is a latch mechanism for a vertical stand or
floor stand.  This latch mechanism achieves a reliable connection
between a stand and a system unit thereon.

      As shown in Fig. 1, a stand 1 has several hooks 2 and several
latches 3, while a system unit 4 has several openings 5.  The part of
the several openings 5 are for engaging the hooks 2, while the
remaining part of the several openings 5 are for engaging the latches
3.

      As shown in Fig. 2 which is the enlarged sectional view along
A-A line in Fig. 1, the latch 3 has a rib 7.  The bottom surface
8 of the rib 7 is to contact the top surface of a desk or
a floor when the stand 1 is set up. The rib 7 works so that
latch 3 should not be released from the engaged opening 5 even under
a mechanical shock or vibration.  According to this latch mechanism,
the system unit 4 is reliably attached to the stand 1.
