  • Patent number: 7950617
    Abstract: A support device includes a support-receiving member, a sliding block, a support, and an elastic sheet. The support-receiving member defines a groove with one end thereof blocked to form a stop end and the other opened to form an exit end. The sliding block and the support are slidably juxtaposed in the groove from the stop end to the exit end and rotatably coupled. The support includes a contact portion extending away from an end near the sliding block. The elastic sheet is fixed to the support-receiving member at the exit end and extends a free end away from the exit end. The free end maintains contact with the contact portion during rotation of the support and presses the contact portion to pivot the support to be stopped by the support-receiving member, stationing the support at that position.

  • Publication number: 20110026197
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a body, a cover, and a switching assembly. The body defines two first openings. The cover defines two second openings facing the two first openings. The switching assembly includes a locking assembly received in the body and a latching assembly received in the cover. The locking assembly includes a handle, two guiding members, and two magnetic members received in the corresponding guiding members. The handle is for impelling the guiding members to move. The latching assembly includes two latching members. Each latching member has a latching end for being attracted by one of the magnetic members. When the cover covers the body, each latching end protrudes through the corresponding second and first openings and is caught by the magnetic members. When the handle is pressed, the handle drives the two guiding members to move to impel the two magnetic members away from the corresponding latching ends.
