Puller for IBM Micro Drive*

   Disclosed is a Puller for IBM Micro Drive*.  This puller
protects IBM Micro Drive* from handling damage.

   IBM Micro Drive* is the first hard disk drive products
that will be handled by user directly.  Its design is very precise
and handling damage is concerned.  Especially top cover designed with
a thin-formed metal is very weak, damages on top cover will cause
performance and reliability degradation.

   This disclosure suggests a puller designed with cover seal.

   The puller prevents user to touching the top cover
directly.  This means protect the products from handling damage.

   IBM Micro Drive* will be installed into CF/PCMCIA
slot.  The slot is placed in small space, there is no clearance for
the additional seal on the top and the bottom side.  But the product
is fully covered with the cover seal for ESD protection, by the
design of puller with the cover seal,puller can be implemented.

   Puller is designed with top cover seal.  (Fig. 1)

   To prevent tension that is applied on top cover, the puller
should be placed on circuit board side.  (Fig. 2)
