Many small data processing machines, such as table-top workstation terminals, need a small amount of documentation kept with the machines. But safety regulations limit the storage of combustible materials within electronic equipment. Compartment 1, shown in cross section, provides an inexpensive closed space for safe document storage. The five-sided compartment has its open side against an interior surface of a machine enclosure 2. A projection 3 on tang 8, attached to one side, fits into notch 5 on a rib of enclosure 2. Lip 4 on an opposite side fits under ledge 6 molded into the enclosure. Document 7 is retrieved by bending tang 8 and pulling upward to release lip 4.
