Fiber optic splice tray Patent #: 5835657
AbstractA fiber optic organizer includes a mounting bracket and a plurality of organizer trays having proximal and distal ends. The organizer trays are pivotally connected at their proximal ends to the mounting bracket and are movable between a stacked position and a raised position to facilitate access to an underlying organizer tray. A locking mechanism is positioned on the distal end of each tray and locks at least two adjacent organizer trays together in a raised position when the organizer trays are lifted to a predetermined angle, and disengages the locked organizer trays when the organizer trays are lifted beyond the predetermined angle. The locking mechanism on each organizer tray includes a slot and an upstanding tab that is received within a slot on an overlying organizer tray when the organizer trays are raised to a predetermined angle. The tab and slot can be angled to assist in pushing an overlying organizer tray into its raised position and also assist in retaining the organizer trays in a locked position if the locked organizer trays are jarred. When raised beyond the predetermined angle, the organizer trays can separate from each other. As the organizer trays are lowered into the stacked position, the organizer trays are maintained separate from each other.
