Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4621876.
A support for a vertically oriented equipment drawer including a plurality of guide rollers and a band roller attached to a lower edge thereof, the guide roller riding in a lower guide track positioned on a supporting equipment floor and the band roller rolling on a band of flexible material layed out in the path of the roller as the equipment drawer is withdrawn from an equipment frame. A tensile force is applied to the band to take up slack and optionally to exert a force on the band roller to permit the equipment drawer to automatically retract back into the equipment frame. A latch is included to engage the band when the equipment drawer is in a withdrawn position to prevent automatic retraction of the equipment drawer. Flat guide rollers engaging an upper guide track are attached to an upper edge of the equipment drawer to prevent lateral movement thereof.
