Abstract

Disclosed is a mechanism for preventing persons lifting a heavy server chassis from physical danger by a specific physical relationship for handles and latches on the chassis. The physical relationship for them makes persons lifting the server grasp only one handle. This prevents them from trying lifting the heavy server chassis by fewer persons.

A handle mechanism for preventing few persons from lifting a heavy server

Disclosed is a mechanism for preventing persons lifting a heavy server chassis from physical danger by a specific physical relationship for handles and latches on the chassis. The physical relationship for them makes persons lifting the server grasp only one handle. This prevents them from trying lifting the heavy server chassis by fewer persons.

The following physical relationship for handles and latches makes persons lifting the server grasp only one handle.

- As shown in Figure 1, the handles are unable to be pulled out because they are latched under normal conditions.
- As shown in Figure 2, the handles can be pulled out after unlocking the latches.
- Pulling out the handles and unlocking the latches cannot be done at the same time by one hand, can be done only by two hands.
- As shown in Figure 3, the handles and the lacthes get back to the normal conditions (the handles are latched) again once they are released.
