Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2007092275A2] A container includes a platform supported by legs and a handle extending from the platform and including a base for attaching the handle to the platform. The handle includes a first telescoping section nested within a second telescoping section, a grip attached to the second telescoping section, a rod extending from the grip and a latching member attached to the base for engaging the rod when the handle is in a compressed condition. The legs may be pivotally attached to the platform and each leg may be formed of wire having a generally rectangular shape with a first side and a second side. The platform may be formed of interleaved portions pivotally attached to a central hub and each section may be movable between an open and closed position. The handle may be biased in order to extend the handle when the latch member is released from the rod. The container may be disposed in an enclosure having a lid and the handle may abut the lid and removal of the lid activates the latching member to bias the rod and allow the handle to extend out of the enclosure.
