Abstract:

A bracket for mounting a view screen fixes the screen in a retracted or a deployed position. The bracket has a base plate fixed to an upright panel. A carrier plate both swings and vertically translates on the base plate. Hinged between the base plate and the carrier plate is a bridge plate. The carrier plate holds the screen, whereby swinging the carrier plate away from the base plate will tilt the screen. A latch subassembly disposed on the carrier plate has a finger that locks to either a tang of the bridge plate or a projection of the base plate to hold the bracket respectively in the deployed or the retracted position. The latch subassembly includes a grip-squeeze actuator to release the finger from the bridge plate or the base plate.
