DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The case is a watertight, crush proof, heavy-duty plastic container used to house and protect a printer. The protection provided by the case is designed to allow mounting the printer in exterior or harsh environment conditions.

The printing of documents, i.e. receipts, tickets, requires the printer to operate in a stable environment. Accordingly, a protective case constructed in accordance with Printer Protect is capable of providing a secure location for printer operation in an external environment heretofore requiring an internal environment.

The use of a watertight, crush proof, heavy-duty plastic container for this invention is responsible on its own, for providing increased productivity and safety printer locations, due to the protective nature of the case and wiring seal connections.
