Abstract

PURPOSE:To provide an electronic equipment equipped with an inexpensive latch mechanism with excellent operability, in which a latch can be prevented from being locked again at the time of releasing the latch, and the latch can be easily and exactly locked at the time of engaging the latch without using a pop-up spring. CONSTITUTION:This device is equipped with a main body 2, display part 4 which is pivotally supported so as to be freely opened and closed to the main body, and latch mechanism 1 for locking the display part in a closing state at the time of closing the display part to the main body. The latch mechanism is equipped with a lock claw 3 protruding outside on the front end face of the main body, latch 5 fixed to the front end face of the display part freely rotatably so as to be engaged with or engagement-released from the lock claw, energizing means 6a which elastically energizes the latch in a direction in which the latch is engaged with the lock claw, and detaining means which inhibits the rotation of the latch to the lock direction in a state that the engagement of the latch with the lock claw is released.
