Claim of US Patent No. 10,219,399

1. A latch mechanism comprising:a latch slide configured to couple a component with a server chassis, the latch slide transitionable between a latched position and an unlatched position, the latch slide having a receiving portion configured to receive a pin;
a latch ramp disposed on the latch slide at a first end of the receiving portion;
a release ramp disposed on the latch slide at a second end of the receiving portion; and
a biasing element configured to bias the latch slide in the latched position;
wherein the latch ramp is configured to draw the pin into the receiving portion and the release ramp is configured to draw the pin away from the receiving portion;
wherein when the latch slide transitions from the unlatched position to the latched position, the latch slide receives the pin in the receiving portion and the pin engages the latch ramp thereby sliding the latch slide and compressing the biasing element;
wherein when the latch slide transitions from the latched position to the unlatched position, the biasing member is compressed and the pin engages the release ramp translating the component in a vertical direction.
