The first surrounding wall 311 has a first initial section 313 connected to the first extending portion 32, a first end section 314 spaced slightly apart from the first initial section 313, and a first intermediate section 315 interconnecting the first initial section 313 and the first end section 314 and defining a first rod hole 312 through which the upright rod 2 extends.
  • The second support arm 4 has a second pivot portion 41 formed at one end thereof and connected pivotally and movably to the upright rod 2, and a second extending portion 42 extending horizontally from the second pivot portion 41. In this embodiment, the second pivot portion 41 has a second surrounding wall 411 made of a flexible material and surrounding the upright rod 2. The second surrounding wall 411 has a second initial section 413 connected to the second extending portion 42, a second end section 414 spaced slightly apart from the second initial section 413, and a second intermediate section 415 interconnecting the second initial section 413 and the second end section 414 and defining a second rod hole 412 through which the upright rod 2 extends.
  • The first pivot portion 31 of the first support arm 3 is provided with a first locking component 61 extending through the first initial section 313 and the first end section 314 of the first surrounding wall 311, and movable between an unlocking position (not shown), where the first surrounding wall 311 is permitted to move along the upright rod 2, and a locking position (see FIGS. 5 and 6), where the first locking component 61 draws the first end section 314 toward the first initial section 313 so as to constrict the first rod hole 312, such that the first surrounding wall 311 is secured on the upright rod 2 due to friction between the first surrounding wall 311 and the upright rod 2.
  • The second pivot portion 41 of the second support arm 4 is provided with a second locking component 62 extending through the second initial section 413 and the second end section 414 of the second surrounding wall 411, and movable between an unlocking position (not shown), where the second surrounding wall 411 is permitted to move along the upright rod 2, and a locking position (see FIGS. 5 and 6), where the second locking component 62 draws the second end section 414 toward the second initial section 413 so as to constrict the second rod hole 412, such that the second surrounding wall 411 is secured on the upright rod 2 due to friction between the second surrounding wall 411 and the upright rod 2. In this embodiment, each of the first and second locking components 61, 62 is a screw, but may be other types of fasteners that can constrict the first and second rod holes 312, 412 in other embodiments of this invention.
  • In this embodiment, the first surrounding wall 311 of the first pivot portion 31 of the first support arm 3 has a bottom surface 316, and the second surrounding wall 411 of the second pivot portion 41 of the second support arm 4 is disposed below the first surrounding wall 311 and has a top surface 416 that confronts the bottom surface 316. The bottom surface 316 of the first surrounding wall 311 is formed with a first engaging block 34 protruding therefrom. The top surface 416 of the second surrounding wall 411 is formed with a second engaging block 44 protruding therefrom. The bottom surface 316 is further formed with a first engaging groove 33 angularly spaced apart from the first engaging block 34 and having an arc length longer than that of the second engaging block 44. The top surface 416 is further formed with a second engaging groove 43 angularly spaced apart from the second engaging block 44 and having an arc length longer than that of the first engaging block 34. Therefore, when the first pivot portion 31 of the first support arm 3 and the second pivot portion 41 of the second support arm 4 are moved along the upright rod 2 to be coupled together, the first engaging groove 33 receives slidably the second engaging block 44 therein, while the second engaging groove 43 receives slidably the first engaging block 34 therein, such that an angle formed between the first and second support arms 3, 4 is limited, thereby avoiding damage to the monitors 11 that are mounted thereon by preventing collision between the monitors 11 when the first and second support arms 3, 4 are pivoted about the upright rod 2.
  • The monitor support device of the first preferred embodiment further comprises a pair of collars 7 made of a material that is softer than those of the upright rod 2 and the first and the second surrounding walls 311, 411. One of the collars 7 is disposed between the first surrounding wall 311 of the first pivot portion 31 of the first support arm 3 and the upright rod 2 for enhancing friction between the first surrounding wall 311 and the upright rod 2 when the first locking component 61 is at the locking position. The other one of the collars 7 is disposed between the second surrounding wall 411 of the second pivot portion 41 of the second support arm 4 and the upright rod 2 for enhancing friction between the second surrounding wall 411 and the upright rod 2 when the second locking component 62 is at the locking position.
  • Referring to FIGS. 3, 4 and 6, the first extending portion 32 of the first support arm 3 is formed with a first elongated slot 321 that extends horizontally, and the second extending portion 42 of the second support arm 4 is formed with a second elongated slot 421 that extends horizontally. The monitor support device of the first preferred embodiment further comprises a pair of monitor engaging components 5, each of which engages slidably a respective one of the first and second elongated slots 321, 421. In this embodiment, each of the monitor engaging components 5 has a sliding part 51 extending slidably through the respective one of the first and second elongated slots 321, 421, and a rotatable part 52 connected to and rotatable relative to the sliding part 51 and adapted for mounting the monitor 11 thereon.
  • In this embodiment, the monitor support device further comprises a limiting component 21 sleeved securely on the upright rod 2 under the first surrounding wall 311 of the first pivot portion 31 of the first support arm 3. The limiting component 21 has a diameter larger than that of each of the first rod hole 312 in the first support arm 3 and the second rod hole 412 in the second support arm 4 so as to limit the lowermost positions of the first and second support arms 3, 4 along the upright rod 2.
  • The monitor support device of the first preferred embodiment further comprises a cable organizing member 22 coupled detachably on the upright rod 2 under the limiting component 21.
  • Compared to the conventional monitor support device 9 illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, the first and second support arms 3, 4 can be moved separately along the upright rod 2, so that the monitors 11 mounted thereon can be secured at different heights relative to the base 1. Moreover, the orientations of the monitors 11 can be individually adjusted through pivoting movements of the first and second support arms 3, 4 and rotary movements of the rotatable parts 52 of the monitor engaging components 5. Therefore, the monitor support device of this embodiment offers greater flexibility during use.
  • As shown in FIG. 8, the second preferred embodiment of the monitor support device according to the present invention has a structure similar to that of the first embodiment. The main difference between this embodiment and the previous embodiment resides in the following. In this embodiment, the monitor support device further comprises a third support arm 300 identical in structure to the first support arm 3, and a fourth support arm 400 identical in structure to the second support arm 4. The third support arm 300 is pivotable about and movable along the upright rod 2 above the first and second support arms 3, 4. The fourth support arm 400 is pivotable about the upright rod 2 above the first and second support arms 3, 4 and is movable relative to the third support arm 300. The monitor support device of this embodiment further comprises a pair of monitor engaging components 500 that engage slidably and respectively the third and fourth support arms 300, 400. The second preferred embodiment further enhances the flexibility during use.
  • While the present invention has been described in connection with what are considered the most practical and preferred embodiments, it is understood that this invention is not limited to the disclosed embodiments but is intended to cover various arrangements included within the spirit and scope of the broadest interpretation so as to encompass all such modifications and equivalent arrangements.
