Abstract:
A bracing frame to be clipped to a cantilever comprises a spool and a fixing rest, wherein the spool consists of a bar-shaped spindle and a plurality of bar-shaped raised tracks. The raised tracks surround the periphery surface of the spindle. A gap is formed between every two adjacent raised tracks. An inward contracted connection part having narrower width is formed between every raised track and the spindle for improving the clipping effect, and a notch is formed respectively on both sides of the connection part. The bracing frame is connected to a clip and a cantilever for holding articles. One or more clips can be disposed side by side or crisscross in any direction. The clips can clip to the raised track at different heights thereby achieving the optimum practicability and efficacy.

Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a bracing frame to be clipped to a cantilever, and more particularly to a bracing frame that allows one or more articles to be located side by side or crisscross in any direction.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The common bracing frame of the monitor is primarily classified into a stand type and a cantilever type. In regard to the stand type, the monitor is assembled to a base and the base is disposed on the tabletop for use. In regard to the cantilever type, the monitor is disposed on an angle-adjustable cantilever that clips fixedly to the edge of the table such that the monitor is suspended in midair.

However, only a single monitor is acceptable for the above-mentioned structure and it does not provide the extension-ability. The above-mentioned structure is primarily provided for individual. There are required numerous bracing frames for a place such as an exhibition that utilizes several monitors simultaneously. Accordingly, much more space is occupied, and disorderly and confused result is caused. It will take much more time for assembly and disassembly. Moreover, the conventional bracing frame can merely be lay horizontally. The bracing frame can adjust the angle of elevation and the angle of depression by means of its pivotal shaft. But, the bracing frame cannot adjust the height to conform to requirement. Accordingly, the conventional bracing frame still needs to be improved.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In view of the drawbacks of the conventional structure, the present invention discloses a bracing frame for use in the industry.

The main object of the present invention is to provide a bracing frame having a plurality of bar-shaped raised tracks such that one or more articles can be located high or low. Therefore, the expanded and varied usage functions are obtained.

It is another object of the present invention to surround the periphery surface of the spindle by the raised tracks such that an individual user or multi-user can utilize the bracing frame simultaneously so as to provide the function of multi-orientation.

It is still another object of the present invention to provide a bracing frame that has a simplified structure and that can be assembled easily, wherein the bracing frame and the cantilever are mounted separately to facilitate folding the bracing frame and to avoid occupying too much space.

The other features and preferred embodiments of the present invention will now be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

The detailed structural feature and the preferred embodiment of the present invention will now be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

Referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the bracing frame of the present invention comprises a spool 1 and a fixing rest 2, wherein the spool. 1 consists of a bar-shaped spindle 11 and a plurality of bar-shaped raised tracks 12, which are integrated into a unity. One end of the spool 1 is decorated with a cap 3 and the other end thereof is connected and assembled to the fixing rest 2. The raised tracks 12 surround the periphery surface of the spindle 11 and locate apart from one another in equal angle. A gap 13 is formed between every two adjacent raised tracks 12. Each gap 13 has the same width. An inward contracted connection part 121 having narrower width is formed between every raised track 12 and the spindle 11 for improving the clipping effect, and a notch 122 is formed respectively on both sides of the connection part 121.

The bracing frame is connected to a clip 10 and operated in coordination with a cantilever 20 for holding an article such as a LCD monitor 30, wherein a pressing device 101 of the clip 10 is clipped fixedly to the notches 122 on both sides of the connection part 121 and to the gaps 13 between the raised tracks 12 so as to prevent the clip 10 from falling off. Accordingly, the article can be held through the connection between the clip 10 and the cantilever 20.

Please refer to the FIG. 3 through FIG. 7 to explicitly illustrate the implementing method and the preferred embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 3, one or more clips 10 may be disposed on any raised track 12 on the periphery of the spool 1 side by side or crisscross in any direction simultaneously since the clips 10 can clip the raised tracks 12 that surround the periphery surface of the spool 1. Moreover, a cable-gathering device 40 may be mounted on the raised track 12 for gathering the cable of the LCD monitor 30.

Furthermore, one or more clips 10 may be disposed simultaneously in vertical direction, as shown in FIG. 4, since the raised tracks 12 are mounted on the spool 1 in the form of the bar shape. If only a single clip 10 is disposed on the raised track 12, the clip 10 may be disposed at different heights on the raised track 12.

Besides, as shown in FIG. 5, the raised tracks 12 may be spaced at irregular intervals on the periphery surface of the spool 1 so as to adapt the present invention to different locations. By use of the above-mentioned raised tracks 12, the clips 10 may be located in preferred positions according to the space factor of the mounting locations. As described in the aforementioned embodiments, the clips 10 are operated in coordination with the cantilevers 20 or other suspension devices. For example, as shown in FIG. 6 and FIG. 7, at least a clip 10 is connected to the LCD monitor 30 for displaying for an individual or multi-user.

While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been set forth for the purpose of disclosure, modifications of the disclosed embodiment of the invention as well as other embodiments thereof may occur to those skilled in the art. Accordingly, the appended claims are intended to cover all embodiments, which do not depart from the spirit and scope of the invention.
