Abstract

Tilt mechanism 10 is used in two places on the base 11 of a CRT display station to tip the CRT (not shown) forward or backward for comfort and glare reduction. In each mechanism 10, spring 12 fits over square shaft 13, having round tenons 14 inside foot 15. Shaft 13 fits into round holes 16, 17 at one end, and into square holes 18, 19 at the other end. Washer 20 and C-clip 21 retain shaft 13 in position. The display CRT is tilted by lifting one side, pushing shaft 13 to the right against the spring to disengage the square portion from square hole 19, rotating mechanism 10, as desired, by turning lever 22 attached to shaft 13. When shaft 13 is released, it re-engages hole 19, locking mechanism 10 in place.

Tilt Mechanism for Data Display Station

Tilt mechanism 10 is used in two places on the base 11 of a CRT display station to tip the CRT (not shown) forward or backward for comfort and glare reduction. In each mechanism 10, spring 12 fits over square shaft 13, having round tenons 14 inside foot 15. Shaft 13 fits into round holes 16, 17 at one end, and into square holes 18, 19 at the other end. Washer 20 and C-clip 21 retain shaft 13 in position. The display CRT is tilted by lifting one side, pushing shaft 13 to the right against the spring to disengage the square portion from square hole 19, rotating mechanism 10, as desired, by turning lever 22 attached to shaft 13. When shaft 13 is released, it re-engages hole 19, locking mechanism 10 in place. Additional tilt positions may be obtained, if desired, by using polygonal or other multi-lobed shaft portions and matching holes.
