Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,233

1. An inner slide rail mounting structure for a two-stage server slide rail comprises:an outer rail comprising an elongated base wall and opposing top and bottom walls connected to respective opposing top and bottom sides of said elongated base wall of said outer rail;
a front bracket mounted to a server rack;
a rear bracket having a front end thereof fixedly connected with a rear end of said outer rail, wherein a front end of said outer rail is mounted to the server rack;
an outer rail reinforcement bar comprising (i) an elongated base wall affixed to a back side of said elongated base wall of said outer rail and (ii) opposing top and bottom walls connected to respective opposing top and bottom sides of said elongated base wall of said outer rail reinforcement bar, wherein said opposing top and bottom walls and said elongated base wall of said outer rail reinforcement bar cooperate to define a longitudinal sliding groove; and
an inner rail affixed to a server box and mounted in said outer rail and axially slidable in and out of said outer rail;
a front bracket supplementary rail comprising a front end and an opposing rear end, wherein said front end of said front bracket supplementary rail is affixed to said front bracket using at least one first fastening member, and wherein said opposing rear end of said front bracket supplementary rail is axially slidably inserted into said longitudinal sliding groove of said outer rail reinforcement bar so that said outer rail reinforcement bar is movable back and forth relative to said front bracket supplementary rail;
a spring plate comprising a first end and an opposing second end, wherein a part of said spring plate is fixedly connected to said opposing rear end of said front bracket supplementary rail using at least one second fastening member;
at least one tension spring comprising a first end and an opposing second end, wherein said first end of said at least one tension spring is connected to said opposing second end of said spring plate, and wherein said opposing second end of said at least one tension spring is connected to a front part of said elongated base wall of said outer rail reinforcement bar; and
an outer rail ejection control plate comprising an abutment portion and a press portion, wherein said outer rail ejection control plate is fixedly connected to said first end of said spring plate using at least one third fastening member;
wherein said abutment portion of said outer rail ejection control plate is abutted against a front end of said top wall of said outer rail reinforcement bar; and
wherein said press portion is extended from said abutment portion for pressing by a user to release said abutment portion from said front end of said top wall of said outer rail reinforcement bar to allow said outer rail reinforcement bar to be pulled outwardly relative to said front bracket supplementary rail by said at least one tension spring to carry said outer rail out of the server rack for the mounting of said inner rail.
