  • Patent number: 8249680
    Abstract: A rotating mechanism comprises a retaining plate, a rotating plate, a rotation enabling member and a biasing member. The rotation enabling member comprising a rail, a track, a guiding post and a guiding groove. The biasing member comprising a first biasing member end and a second biasing member end. The first biasing member end is retained on the retaining plate and the second biasing member end is retained on the rail. When the rotating plate rotates from a first state to an intermediate state, the biasing member is compressed by the rail to exert a force on the rotating plate and the retaining plate causing the rotating plate to automatically rotate toward an third state once the rotating plate passes the intermediate state.
