Abstract

Switches in computer systems include a switch block, such as switch block 15 (Figs. 1 and 2), which, in the mounted position, project through the machine frame cover 30 (Fig. 2). This does not present a functional problem during normal operation. During shipment of the computer, however, cover 30 can move relative to block 15 and fracture it.
