Abstract

A technique is described whereby a simple pressure-activated mechanism is used to change the viewing angle of cathode ray tube (CRT) display monitors. The mechanism, as shown in the figure, consists of a single-piece structure which clamps onto swivel bar 10 of the display monitor. When release bar 11 is depressed, clamp section 12 releases the hold on swivel bar 10 because of the pressure applied at swivel point 13. The monitor may then be tilted to the desired viewing angle. Releasing bar 11 allows clamp section 12 to grasp swivel bar 10, due to the built-in spring-loaded characteristics of the mechanism. The monitor is then retained at the desired position.
