Abstract

A liquid crystal display is mounted so that it may be infinitely adjusted to obtain the desired orientation of the display relative to its light source and to window glare. A liquid crystal display housing 1 of plastic has plastic pivot pins 2 extending from opposite sides thereof. Each of the pins 2 is disposed within a spring steel clip 3. Each of the clips 3 is mounted within a mounting bracket 4 on opposite sides of the housing 1. Each of the two mounting brackets 4 has a slot 5 that allows legs of the bracket 4 to flex to install the clip 3. The clip 3 has its nominal inside diameter smaller than the diameter of the pivot pin 2 so that it is constantly under load whereby this interference enables the infinite adjustment of the display housing 1.
