  • Publication number: 20220159861
    Abstract: A latch to secure an access panel at an enclosure may include a shuttle component including a latch pin. The latch pin is configured to engage with a corresponding receptacle at the enclosure. A spring retracts the latch pin to within the access panel when the access panel is not positioned for installation at the enclosure, and permits the latch pin to protrude from the access panel to mate with the receptacle in response to magnetic attraction by a magnet positioned within the receptacle when the access panel is positioned for installation at the enclosure. The magnetic attraction of the magnet to the latch pin overcomes the force of the spring to retract the latch pin.

  • Publication number: 20210390985
    Abstract: A chassis for housing a computing device of an information handling system includes a receiving portion of an expansion card receiver that receives an expansion card and operably connects the expansion card to another component of the computing device while the expansion card is received by the receiving portion. The chassis further includes a management portion of the expansion card receiver that receives a force from a user and, in response to receiving the force: transitions the management portion from a first state to a second state. In the first state, a handle, that enables the expansion card to be removed from the chassis is disposed inside of the management portion and the expansion card receiver is locked to the chassis. In the second state, the handle is disposed outside of the management portion and the expansion card receiver is unlocked from the chassis.

  • Patent number: 10852786
    Abstract: A venting grate includes a main portion, a first venting area, and a second venting area. The first venting area is defined by first, second, third, and fourth edges. Each of the first, second, third, and fourth edges extend from the main portion. The second venting area is defined by fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth edges. Each of the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth edges extend from the main portion. The third edge and the fifth edge extend away from the main portion of the venting grate and angle together to form a pointed edge between the first and second venting areas.

  • Patent number: 9915085
    Abstract: Systems and methods that may be implemented to secure a bezel over a face of an information handling system chassis by using magnetic force to draw in and retain a ferromagnetic bezel latch pin in a latching position relative to complementary latch structure of the chassis. The disclosed systems and methods may be implemented in a manner that minimizes functional intrusions on the front (or other side) of a chassis enclosure to which a bezel is secured, that reduces the number and/or complexity of mechanical features that are conventionally employed, and/or that presents both an intuitive and pleasant user experience for the end user.
