Title: MECHANICAL INTERLOCK
Abstract:
A mechanical interlock for securing a cover to a housing may include a cover latch coupled to a wall of a housing, and a spring biasing the cover latch in a first direction and coupled between the wall of the housing and the cover latch. The mechanical interlock may further include an arm coupled to the cover latch at a first end of the arm, and an electrical socket aperture defined within the wall of the housing juxtaposed to a second end of the arm. When the cover latch is returned to the first position via the spring after the cover is removed from the housing, the arm permits for the electrical cord to interface with the electrical socket.
