          Appeal No.96-0601                                                           
          Application 08/104,965                                                      


          In short, the claims expressly require that unlatching occur in             
          response to manual deformation of the first section between the             
          pivot and the latch means.  There is absolutely nothing in Camps            
          which either teaches or suggests such an arrangement.                       













               The examiner’s rejections of claims 4-7 under 35 U.S.C.                
           102(e) and claims 9, 10, 12 and 13 under 35 U.S.C.  103 are              
          reversed.                                                                   
                                      REVERSED
