Abstract

A display tilt mechanism consists of three molded parts: two identical feet and a base member for attachment to or part of the the lower side of a CRT display. The base part has two lower cylindrical convex surfaces matching upper concave surfaces one on each foot. The base has two slots, spaced apart to accommodate spring latches on each foot, that lock the three parts together but allow the display to tilt on the feet. Figs. 1 and 2 show views of the three molded parts after assembly. Base 1 has two lower convex surfaces 2 which match upper concave surface 3 on foot 4. Fig. 2 shows one of the two slots 5 in base 1 accommodating staggered spring clips 6, 7. An additional spring clip 8 is shown in Fig. 1. Spring clips 6, 7, 8 are snapped through slot 5 during assembly of foot 4 to base 1. Fig.
