Abstract

In a computer logic package, it is sometimes desirable to have a small feature logic book 2 that is mechanically and electrically attached to a large logic book 1 (see Fig. 1). The large logic book establishes the interface to the remaining logic in the computer and physically supports the small book. These small books can be easily added to the large book by a simple latching device 3. A one-piece molded latch that performs the desired functions is herein described. The small book is inserted into the large book with the latch in the lower position. The latch is then lifted to engage the camming surfaces 4. As the latch is pivoted further, it will lock onto the rear surface of the small book.
