CLAIMS
What is claimed is:

1. A carrier configured for coupling with a chassis for housing a data handling system, comprising:
a frame constructed for at least partially housing a component for implementation into the data handling system;
a handle pivotally coupled to the frame, the handle having a first end and a second end, the first end including a pinion portion having a plurality of teeth; and a securing mechanism disposed on the second end of the handle, the securing mechanism being configured for preventing rotation of the handle with respect to the frame,
wherein the pinion portion is configured to extend beyond the frame to engage with the chassis for housing the data handling system, the pinion being configured to control movement of the frame with respect to the chassis.

2. The carrier of claim 1, wherein the pinion portion is configured to rotate between a first engaging orientation and a second secured orientation.

3. The carrier of claim 1, wherein the securing mechanism is a latch configured to engage with the frame.

4. The carrier of claim 3, wherein the latch is unitarily formed with the handle.

5. The carrier of claim 1, wherein the handle is biased towards a first engaging orientation.

6. The carrier of claim 1, wherein at least two teeth included in the plurality of teeth are configured to sequentially engage with the chassis when rotating between an engaging orientation and a secured orientation.

7. The carrier of claim 1, wherein rotation of the handle is proportional to the movement of the frame with respect to the chassis.

8. The carrier of claim 1, wherein the pinion is configured and arranged to prevent insertion of the carrier into the chassis unless the handle is rotated towards a secured orientation.

9. A chassis assembly for a data handling system, comprising:
a chassis for housing the data handling system, the chassis including a rack portion; and
a component carrier including:
a frame constructed for at least partially housing a component for implementation into the data handling system;
a handle pivotally coupled to the frame, the handle having a first end and a second end, the first end including a pinion portion having a plurality of teeth; and a securing mechanism disposed on the second end of the handle, the securing mechanism being configured for securing the handle to the frame,
wherein the pinion portion engages with the rack portion of the chassis to control at least one of seating of the component carrier in the chassis or removal of the component carrier from the chassis.

0. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein the pinion portion is configured to rotate between an engaging orientation wherein a first tooth of the plurality of teeth engages with the rack portion to prevent insertion of the component carrier and a secured orientation wherein the securing mechanism is engageable with the frame.

11. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein the securing mechanism is a latch configured to engage with the frame.

12. The chassis assembly of claim 11, wherein the latch is unitarily formed with the handle.

13. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein the handle is biased towards an engaging orientation.

14. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein at least two teeth included in the plurality of teeth are configured to sequentially engage with the chassis when rotating between a first orientation and a second orientation in which the carrier is secured in the chassis.

15. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein rotation of the handle is proportional to the movement of the component carrier with respect to the chassis.

16. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein the frame is configured to prevent user grasping of the component carrier adjacent a securing orientation.

17. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein the rack portion defines a plurality of apertures configured to individually receive an individual tooth of the plurality of teeth included on the pinion portion.

18. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein at least two teeth included in the plurality of teeth are configured to sequentially engage with the rack portion of the chassis when rotating between an engaging orientation and a secured orientation.

19. The chassis assembly of claim 9, wherein pinion is configured and arranged to prevent insertion of the carrier into the chassis unless the handle is rotated towards a secured orientation.

20. A computer chassis assembly, comprising:
a chassis for housing the computer, the chassis including a rail for receiving a component, the rail defining a plurality of apertures extending from adjacent an exterior of the chassis towards an interior of the chassis; and
a component carrier, for containing the component, the component carrier including: a frame constructed for at least partially housing the component for implementation into the computer;
a handle pivotally coupled to the frame, the handle having a first end and a second end the first end including a pinion portion having a plurality of teeth, the handle being rotateable to permit the second end to rotate towards and away from the frame; and
a deformable latch included on the second end of the handle, the latch being configured for securing the handle to the frame,
wherein the pinion portion includes at least one tooth included in the plurality of teeth for preventing insertion of the component carrier, unless the handle is rotated, the handle being rotateable to selectively engage the pinion with the plurality of apertures to draw the component carrier into the chassis when the second end of the handle is rotated towards the frame.

21. The computer chassis assembly of claim 20, wherein the deformable latch is unitarily formed with the handle.

22. The computer chassis assembly of claim 20, wherein rotation of the handle is proportional to the movement of the component carrier with respect to the chassis.

23. A method of inserting a component carrier into a computer chassis, comprising: disposing a component carrier partially within the computer chassis;
rotating a handle pivotally mounted to a frame included in the component carrier to draw the component carrier into a seated position within the computer chassis; securing a latch included on the handle with the frame to fix the component carrier within the computer chassis.
