Claim of US Patent No. 9,345,155

1. A landscape controller housing, comprising:
a face pack including an enclosure, at least one manual input device mounted in a front side of the enclosure, a pair of pivot
pins extending from a pair of opposite ends of the enclosure, and at least one locking pin extending from an end of the enclosure
and spaced from one of the pivot pins; and

an outer housing defining an interior sufficiently large to enclosure the face pack, the outer housing enclosing a chassis
having a pair of bearing slots each on opposite sides of the chassis, the bearing slots being configured such that the face
pack can be installed in the outer housing in a normal upright position in which the pivot pins are each received in a corresponding
one of the bearing slots, the face pack can be swung through a predetermined angle to allow the face pack to be removed from
the outer housing by sliding the pivot pins out of the bearing slots, and the face pack can be inserted into the outer housing
into a substantially horizontal service position by sliding both the pivot pins and the locking pin into the bearing slots.
