Abstract

Many communication devices, including pagers, incorporate the use of a single screw or some type of positive fastener to retain a housing. The single screw or fastener is usually located in a side wall or wrner wall of the housing due to the nature of the interlock system. The screw or fastener head is almost always exposed to the outside world to promote easy removal, repair and reassembly Some of the screws are tamperprcof and some are not. Most are recessed to some degree. Most are formed of various metals or sometimes the fasteners are configured of plastics. However, generally speaking, the fasteners are usually single function and purpose, and that is to hold the device's housing together.
