Also on the mounting bracket 16 are holes 18 to assist in detenting the cardholder in its inserted position. The cardholder is formed with tabs 20 which are molded and form outstanding tabs which create between the back surface of the tab and the front surface of the cardholder a channel into which mounting bracket 16 is insertable. On tab 20 are raised portions or buttons 22 which, when the cardholder is in home position, will be seated in holes 18.
