Abstract

The invention discloses an engaging apparatus applied to equipment. The engaging apparatus includes an engaging device and a second magnetic member. The engaging device is movably disposed in a cover of the equipment, and includes a first magnetic member and an engaging member. The second magnetic member is also disposed in the cover and corresponds to the first magnetic member. The cover thereon defines a first position and a second position. When the engaging device is operated to move from the first position to the second position, a magnetic force generated between the second magnetic member and the first magnetic member assists in turning back the engaging device to the first position.
