illustrating the mounting of the extensible handle.
Referring especially to Fig. 1, 5 generally desig
nates a cabinet which is open at its front and
which has a top 6 and sides 1. A plurality of
45 tray slides 8, each adapted ‘to carry a group of
trays 9, are mounted in any preferred manner
for sliding movement into and withdrawal from
the cabinet. These slides with the trays thereon
close the front of the cabinet. As herein illus
50 trated each tray slide is carried atv its opposite
sides on rollers (not shown) of extensible sup
ports ll of well-known construction sov that the
trays thereon can be withdrawn free from the
cabinet. Each tray slide is preferably provided
55 with side rails i2 to engage the exposed sides of
to disengage the latch from its catch.

Each group of trays is locked on its tray slides 30 ‘

on a leafspring bent intermediate its ends to
form a latch 22. One end of the leaf spring is 40
welded or otherwise fastened to the channeland
its'other end projects through an opening in the
channel so that the latch can be readily de
pressed when a tray is forced rearwardly on-the
slide. Thesides of the trays are ‘provided with
catches 25 adapted to engage their related leaf 4'5
spring latch 22 when these trays are in their nor- _ _.
mal position on the slide.
_
It will be noted that the front face of each
card tray is free from any handle but instead an
extensible handle 26 is mounted within the tray
at the front thereof.
This handle is U-shaped _
and its arms 21 extend through pairs of alined
apertures in a channel-shaped strip 29 welded to '

2. In a structure of the class described, a cab
inet open at its front, a plurality of open front
tray slides mounted in spaced relation for move
ment into and withdrawal from said cabinet,
latch mechanism individual to each slide for
locking the same in the cabinet, a handle for each
slide, latch mechanism releasing means adja
_ In’ using the cabinet any one of the tray slides
may be withdrawn by means of the handle ll
after its latch button 20 has been moved to the
right to disengage the latch I! from the catch
l5. When the slide has been partially or com
pletely withdrawn any one of the trays thereon
10 may be disengaged therefrom. In removing a
tray from the slide, the handle 21 is elevated to
the position shown in Fig. 1 so that it can be en
gaged by the operator's ?ngers. It is then
merely necessary to slightly raise the front end
15 of the tray unit until the catch 25 disengages
the spring latch 22. It should be mentioned that
this handle is so mounted that its tray can be
‘carried in one hand, the rear end of the tray
extending downwardly toward the floor but in
20 clined at such an angle that the cards cannot
fall from the tray. When it is desired to replace
a tray on the slide, the tray is merely forced
back on the slide until the catch 25 engages the
spring latch 22. The tray slide with the trays
thereon can be either in the closed or open
position, when a tray is replaced thereon if it is
in the open position, it is then pushed into the
cabinet where it is retained by the latching
mechanism.

'
By this construction it is only possible to re
move the tray from the slide when the slide is
in its partially or fully extended‘ position, since
when the slide with the‘ trays thereon is in
closed position, it is impossible to elevate the
front of the tray to disengage the catch 25 on
the trays from the latch 22. In the cabinet of
the present invention, the handles on the trays
are concealed, and a single handle on each tray
slide with a single latch releasing button con
40
veniently located with respect thereto, e?ects
the withdrawal from the cabinet of this slide and
its group of trays.
What we claim is:
1. In a structure of the class described, a cab
inet open at its front, a plurality of open front
tray slides mounted in spaced relation for move- '
ment into and withdrawal from said cabinet,
latch mechanism individual to each slide for
locking the same in the cabinet, a handle for each
slide, latch mechanism releasing means adjacent
50 each handle, a plurality of trays detachably car
ried on each tray slide, the fronts of which trays
normally close the open front‘ of their slide, the
front face of each tray being without a handle,
a concealed handle mounted on the inner front
55 wall of the tray, latching means mounted on each
slide, and a catch on a side of each of said plu

cent each handle, a plurality of, trays detachably
carried on each tray’ slide, the fronts of which
trays normally close the open front of their
slide, the front face of each tray being without
a handle, a telescoping handle mounted just to
the rear of the front wall of the tray, latching 15
means mounted on each slide, and a catch on a
side of each of said plurality of trays for engag
ing said latching means whereby said tray can
not be removed from the slide while it is within
the cabinet, but can be detached from the tray 20
slide after the slide is partially withdrawn from
the cabinet.

3. In a structure .of the class described, a cab
inet open at its front, a plurality of open front
tray slides mounted in spaced relation for move 25
ment into and withdrawal from said cabinet,
latch mechanism individual to each slide for
locking the same in the cabinet, a handle for
each slide, latch mechanism releasing means on
each slide adjacent its handle and in horizon 30
tal alinement therewith, a plurality of trays de
tachably carried by each tray slide, the fronts of
which trays normally close the open front of
their slide, a concealed handle at the rear of each
tray front whereby said fronts are free from 35
normally exposed handles, latching means mount
ed on each slide, and a catch on each of said
plurality of trays for engaging said latching
means whereby said trays cannot be removed
from the tray slide until after it is partially with
drawn from the cabinet.
4. In a structure of the class described, a cab
inet open at its front, a tray slide mounted for
movement into and withdrawal from said cabinet,
a. latch mechanism for locking the slide in the 45
cabinet, a handle on said slide, latch mechanism
releasing means on the slide‘ adjacent said han
dle, a plurality of trays detachably carried by
the tray slide with adjacent side walls of the
trays in spaced relation, the fronts of the trays 50
normally closing the open front of the slide, a
resilient latch mounted on said slide in the space
between adjacent sidewalls of the trays, a catch
projecting from the side of each tray adjacent
said resilient latch for engagement therewith, 55
whereby said trays cannot be removed from the
tray slide until it is partially withdrawn from the
cabinet.
