Abstract

See full text

L-shaped flanges (20) are formed integrally with both edges of the base (12) on a computer chassis (10). U-shaped channels (26) are also formed integrally with both edges (21-22) of the cover (14) on the computer chassis (10). The cover (14) is installed over the base (12) by matching the U-shaped channels (26) with the L-shaped flanges (20) and sliding the cover (14) into position. The metal-to-metal contact all along the U-shaped channels (26) and the L-shaped flanges (20) helps retard the emission of radio frequency from the chassis (10).
