A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11889637B2) discloses a display device featuring a unique design with a rotatable knob, a restriction unit, and a detachable screen panel. The knob, with a latch and multiple teeth, can be rotated between two locations to control the protrusion of the latch. A restriction unit within the device housing restricts the knob's movement by engaging with the teeth. The screen panel, perpendicular to the axis of rotation, is detachably connected to the device housing. Additionally, the device includes a first connector that can slide between two positions, a locking mechanism, and a hook with bolts for affixing the device housing.

Moreover, the patent also covers a display system comprising multiple display devices hung on brackets, each mirroring the design of the individual display device. The system allows for interconnection between adjacent display devices using the knobs, creating a seamless display setup. Each display device within the system features a restriction unit, a first connector, a locking mechanism, and a hook with bolts for attachment. The innovative design of the display system offers a versatile and user-friendly solution for setting up multiple display devices in various environments, enhancing the overall viewing experience for users.
