Anaheim, CA--Premier Mounts has been awarded a patent for the Griplate, a specially designed metal plate that maintains the desired position of a flat-panel display by registering the mounting screw with the mounting bracket.
The Griplate (US Patent number 8,035,757 B2) is an anti-slip plate with protrusions that align with holes on the mounting bracket. Once the plate and bracket have been installed in the desired position, a screw secures the plate, bracket and device together. The flat-panel is held in place by the engagement holes on the bracket and protrusions on the Griplate, without having to excessively tighten the screw.
Mounts that feature the Griplate include: CTM Series, PCM Series, RTM Series, ECM Series, RFM, GB-MS1, GB-MS2, AM300 and AM175.
