Abstract

A device very similar to a fastener produced by Illinois Tool Works may be modified in design and concept to support circuit boards in a stacked relationship. The circuit board support in its configuration for supporting multiple circuit boards is illustrated in the drawing above. A frame member which will ultimately support the device and the circuit boards is designated 7. The circuit board support 1 itself has retaining snap latches 2 and 3 molded into openings and containing a latching surface 8 which can engage the planar surface of the circuit boards 4 and 5. The circuit board support is engaged with frame 7 by inserting the stem 9 into a hole 10, which may be a blind hole if desired.
