High Rigid Tilt Foot

      Disclosed is a tilt foot mechanism for a notebook Personal
Computer (PC) which is strong and rigid.  This mechanism consists of
only three parts, so it is good for manufacturability and product
cost.

      Fig. 1 shows how to assemble it.  Fig. 2 shows the isometric
and section view of both the open and closed condition.  The tilt
feet (1) can be assembled by being inserted into a base cover (2).
In the open condition, it is not forced to a shaft (3) of the tilt
feet (1) because a rib (4) of the tilt feet (1) is forced.
Therefore, this mechanism stands against 50 kgf minimum in each.

This mechanism can be applied to any product which has a keyboard.
