  • Patent number: 11829201
    Abstract: A rotatable docking station includes a swivel mount assembly for rotational mounting of an electronic device. The swivel mount assembly includes and insertable part to be inserted into an opening in a structure and a lip part. A securing body secures the assembly body to a surface of the structure. A rotatable body includes another insertable part to be inserted into an opening in the insertable part of the assembly body, a plate part, and side walls with at least one side aperture. A platform part supports an electronic device and has at least one aperture at a location that permits a cable extending from the electronic device to pass through the aperture. At least one cable retractor is coupled to another end of the another insertable part of the rotatable body and has one first pulley and one second pulley.

  • Publication number: 20230359243
    Abstract: A cable retractor includes a frame having first and second frame ends, opposing frame walls between the frame ends, and a track extending along one of the frame walls. A block slides along the track. A single first pulley is coupled to the block and is rotatable about a first axis that moves together with the block, the first pulley being the sole pully that is rotatable about the first axis. A spring spool is mounted at the first frame end. A spring has a coiled part wound around the spring spool and has a segment that extends away from the coiled part and is coupled to the block. A single second pulley is disposed at the second frame end and is rotatable about a fixed second axis, the second pulley being the sole pully that is rotatable about the second axis.

  • Publication number: 20230268698
    Abstract: A swivel mount assembly for rotational mounting of an electronic device to a mounting structure includes a rotatable body inserted, in part, into an opening in the mounting structure and rotatable about an axis extending through the mounting structure opening. A plate part above the mounting structure has an opening that opens into the mounting structure opening. A sidewall is joined at one end to the plate part and has a side aperture formed therein. A roller is disposed in the opening in the plate part and directs a cable extending through the opening in the mounting structure to further pass through the side aperture. A hold/release mechanism, disposed above the plate part, holds the cable and prevents its movement when the hold/release mechanism is in a first setting, and releases the cable and permits its movement when the hold/release mechanism is in a second setting.
