  • Patent number: 4780792
    Abstract: An electronic component module is mounted on a motherboard. An elongated slot is formed in the module. A pair of ejector handles are mounted with the slot. A first leg portion of each handle is mounted on one side of the slot and a second leg portion is mounted on an opposite side of the slot. Each handle has a first end including an aperture formed in each leg and a second end including a flange. A pin connection extends through the apertures and the slot for pivotally and slidably connecting the handle to the module. Each handle is slidably movable from a first end of the slot to a second end of the slot adjacent a supporting chassis. The handles can then be pivoted outwardly away from the module until contacting the chassis, and then urged downwardly into engagement with the chassis thus unseating and lifting the module from nested engagement with the motherboard.
