Abstract

A convenient, movable, compact and secure cabinet for a personal computer is provided by an enclosure having a lockable door and a pair of pull-out shelves. In the figure, a keyboard tray 1 moves out of the cabinet on a pair of slides 2 and is attached to the slides underneath by a swivel mechanism (not shown). The keyboard pivots 360Πand can slide laterally in either direction to allow keyboard use from either side of the cabinet. Tray 1 is supported low enough to permit storage of the keyboard when the shelf is retracted. An extension along the front edge of the tray can be added to serve as a palm rest. A second tray 3 has an attached auxiliary printer shelf 4 and is mounted for withdrawal on slides 5 to provide printer access.
