  • Patent number: 10606310
    Abstract: An electronic device including a body, an input module, and an engaging mechanism is provided. The input module is movably disposed at the body and adapted to move along an axial direction. The engaging mechanism includes a first engaging portion and a second engaging portion. The first engaging portion is connected to the input module. The second engaging portion is movably connected to the body. When the axial direction has a first angle with respect to a direction of gravity, the second engaging portion is away from the first engaging portion so that the input module is adapted to move along the axial direction. When the axial direction has a second angle with respect to the direction of gravity, the second engaging portion is engaged with the first engaging portion to limit the movement of the input module in the axial direction, and the first angle is greater than the second angle.
