  • Patent number: 10479281
    Abstract: An equipment mounting device and an installation arrangement for mounting an equipment to two fittings. The mounting device comprises a longitudinal carrier configured to be coupled to the equipment, and sized to span a space between the two fittings. A first coupling is disposed at a first end of the longitudinal carrier. The first coupling is configured to be coupled with a first of the two fittings and, when coupled with the first fitting, to prevent movement of the carrier in a first direction different from a direction along a longitudinal axis of the longitudinal carrier. A second coupling is configured to detachably couple with a second of the two fittings by receiving a part of the second fitting and, when coupled with the second fitting, to prevent movement of the carrier at least in the first direction and the direction of the longitudinal axis of the carrier.

  • Publication number: 20130270407
    Abstract: A mount system is adapted to attach a monitor to a wall. The mount system includes a panel mounting bracket with a flexible member between two bars. Each bar has a plurality of holes such that matching holes between two bars are separated to substantially match different distances between the top two VESA holes on the rear side of monitors. This way, the panel mounting bracket can universally fit different monitors. The mount system also includes a wall plate with a “U” shape hook adapted to receive the flexible member. The flexible member is bonded to the two bars in such a way to substantially prevent the flexible member from disengaging from the two bars due to the weight of the monitor.

  • Patent number: 8540198
    Abstract: A support arm system (10) includes a socket (16) for attachment to a surface (18) and a support arm (14), for removable insertion in the socket (16). The support arm (14) has at least one formation (22). The socket (16) includes a housing (28) having an insertion opening (30) leading to a passage (32) for insertion of the support arm (14). At least one formation (34) in the passage (32) complementary to the at least one formation (22) on the support arm (14) is provided to engage the support arm (14) when the support arm (14) is in the socket (16). A gate element (36) in the passage (32) is biased to a position at or in front of said at least one formation (34) in the passage. To insert the support arm (14), the gate element (36) must be pushed against its bias to expose the formation in the passage for engagement by the support arm (14) to retain the support arm in the socket, the gate element (36) providing a positive force between the support arm (14) and socket (16) while it is so retained.
