Abstract (en)

In a cabinet with an upswing door adapted to be swung up to become open and placed at rest on the top of the cabinet main body, a major improvement lies in a unique link arrangement of the cabinet main body and the closure that eliminates the need of using a costly slide rail assembly. A metal arm unit B is secured to the inner surface 10m of a lateral wall of the cabinet main body 10 and the free end of a rotary arm B3 extending from the metal arm unit B is made to pivot on a pin B5 fitted to the upswing door 10a. As the upswing door 10a is operated to open by hand, a movable front top wall 10h and the upswing door 10a are sequentially folded on a fixed rear top wall 10f along a top wall hinge 10g and a door hinge and placed at rest there so that the door opening operation can be completed easily and smoothly without a slide rail assembly. <IMAGE>
