    Abstract: A drawer guide is provided for the displaceable arrangement of a drawer, which is arranged to be pulled out from a carcass in a pull-out direction, on the carcass. The drawer guide comprising at least two guide rails, which are displaceable relative to one another with respect to the pull-out direction. A carcass-side guide rail is provided, which is arranged, in an assembled state of the drawer guide, on the carcass. A drawer-side guide rail is provided, which, in the assembled state of the drawer guide, is arranged on the drawer. At least one front end region with respect to the pull-out direction, of the drawer-side guide rail, in a preassembled state of the drawer guide, is movable in a deflection direction running transversely to the pull-out direction relative to the carcass-side guide rail to achieve the assembled state of the drawer guide on the drawer.

  • Publication number: 20140111916
    Abstract: An assembly mechanism with easy assembly is disclosed. The assembly mechanism includes a first sliding member, an assembly member, a second sliding member and a pushing structure. The first sliding member, whereon an opening is formed, is installed on a second module in a slidable manner. The assembly member with an end being detachably contained inside the opening and an another end being pivoted to a first module is driven by the first module to slide the first sliding member. The second sliding member is installed on the first sliding member in a slidable manner and for covering the opening to constrain the end of the assembly member inside the opening. The pushing structure is disposed on the second module for pushing the second sliding member to separate from the opening, so as to remove the end of the assembly member from the opening.

  • Publication number: 20140111930
    Abstract: A rail adjustable mount adjusts a rail to support information handling system chassis with different depths in racks of different depths. The adjustable mount couples to a rack front with a sliding portion extending into the rack interior. The adjustable mount sliding portion slidingly engages a guide of the rail to allow adjustment of the rail relative to the rack so that a rail fits into a rack having a depth that is greater than the length of the rail's housing. A floating portion of the rail supports the rail at the rear of the rack and allows the rail position to float relative to the rear of the rack. A biasing device of the adjustable mount biases the rail towards the front of the rack to aid full extension and retraction of the rail at the rack.

  • Patent number: 8646856
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a bottom-mounted slide. The bottom-mounted slide includes a movable member, stationary members and a ball housings. First raceways are formed in both lateral sides of the movable member. Each stationary member has second raceways which are respectively connected to the first raceways by corresponding balls to guide the movable member. The balls roll along the corresponding first and second raceways. The ball housings are provided between the movable member and each of the stationary members. The ball housings support the balls. A depressed part is provided in a predetermined portion of each of the lateral sides of the movable member between the corresponding first raceways. The depressed part is inserted into a hollow space defined inside the first raceways of the corresponding end of the movable member. Therefore, the stability can be increased by improvement of roll-forming and reduction of horizontal moment.
