Title: Device for releasably mounting wrist support to computer keyboard

Abstract: A device for releasably mounting a wrist support to a keyboard is disclosed. The device includes a slide movably received in a slot defined in a front extension of the keyboard. The slide has a bottom projection extending beyond a bottom face of the keyboard for manually moving the slide and an L-shaped top projection having a segment spaced from a top surface of the slide for defining a channel. A guide plate is fixed to the keyboard by a bolt and has an edge movably received in the channel for retaining the slide in the slot and guiding the movement of the slide. A catch is attached to the slide to be movable therewith between a released position and a secured position. The catch forms a barb whereby when the catch is at the secured position, the barb engages an opening defined in the wrist support for securing the wrist support to the keyboard and when the catch is at the released position, the barb disengages from the opening of the wrist support for releasing the wrist support from the keyboard. The catch is biased by a spring toward the secured position for securely retaining the wrist support on the keyboard. The wrist support may be removed by moving the catch to the released position for disengaging the barb from the opening of the wrist support.
