Abstract

The present cartridge has a self-locking adjustable wall which has an eccentric spring-loaded pivot point for the wall so that the wall may be moved along the track in one direction against the edge of the paper stack for adjustment. However, because of this eccentric spring-loaded pivot, any pressure applied to the wall in the other direction by the paper stack will result in a stud, which extends from the bottom of the wall, becoming wedged in a receiving groove to lock the wall into position.
