Abstract

One type of lock box includes a cash tray which slides in an outer housing. When this type of lock box has been used in a point-of-sale terminal, it has been a standard practice to use a high rise latch located at the rear wall of the cash tray. A typical high rise latch includes a dog which can be retracted from engagement with the rear wall to permit a spring to "kick" the cash tray open. When the cash tray is closed, the latching mechanism is mechanically reset.
