Abstract

Figs. 1 and 2 illustrate a method of mounting a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) 10 or similar display panel in a device, such as a portable computer. The LCD 10 is mounted in a metal frame 13 which has mounting ears 13A which are used to mount the LCD 10 to a bezel 12. The bezel 12 is then securely attached to the portable device (not shown). A rubber grommet 14 is inserted into a hole in each mounting ear 13A. The LCD 10 is accurately located relative to the bezel 12 by fitting holes in the rubber grommet 14 over locating posts 12A which are an integral part of the bezel 12. A spring clip 15 is snapped over the rubber grommet 14 onto hooks 12B which are also an integral part of the bezel 12.
