# Eject Circuit Board From Jig

I have a jig I am working on that accepts a circuit board. When the lever is pressed I would like the board to be ejected to the left - as shown in the image.

What I am finding is that the board is ejected directly upwards.

I have tried different shapes and length of arm to try and control this with no success. Does anyone know of modifications I can make to control the direction?

Requirements:

When the circuit board is installed it must be parallel to the table. I.e. I can't rotate the entire jig.

When the circuit board is installed there can't be any obstructions directly above the board.

Thanks!

• You need 2 levers. One to lift left side. Second to move board sideways to left. Dec 6, 2021 at 23:43
• @StainlessSteelRat The first lever can also have a second lower finger to flip the second lever. Dec 7, 2021 at 1:55
• With @StainlessSteelRat's approach, you might also want some fences to guide the ejection path Dec 7, 2021 at 12:25
• This is poorly defined. What do you mean "Eject to the left"? Will a human operate this? Is there a target somewhere they are aiming for? How far does it have to go? What is the expected final state? Circuit board 20cm to the left? With the board facing down? Or up? Does it have to land on something? In something? Does someone just need to get a finger under it to pick it up? How is it loaded? Can you accept a lip opposite the lever?

• @Andy How about a simpler question then - why is it bad that it ejects straight up? I can imagine a dozen scenarios where that would be perfectly fine and a dozen others where it might not be. Each of them I would propose a different solution to, though, because for each of them it could be bad for entirely different reasons. It's incredibly difficult to propose solutions without understanding what the problem is - you have all of that information in your head but haven't written it in the question.
