As shown, the sandwiched angle of the support shaft 33 with the swing shaft 34 in each angle adjustment set 31 is directly controlled by the activation device 35. When the user finishes adjusting the sandwiched angle of the support shaft 33 with the swing shaft 34, the latch strength of the second latch element 362 with the third latch element 363 can be changed to change the friction generated by stacking each first link shaft 351 with each second link shaft 352 to further control the sandwiched angle of the support shaft 33 with the swing shaft 34 by a simple way. It is benefit for the user to quickly adjusting needed optimum angle of view, as well as the optimum angle of view of the display 41 can be truly maintained by the use of each activation device 35.

Further, a first spacing slot 345 is set on each swing fin 343. A plurality of first spacing shafts 366 are used to respectively pivot through each first spacing slot 345 and a link shaft spacing hole 355 dug on each first link shaft 351 for limiting the sandwiched angle of each first link shaft 351 with the swing shaft 34.

Further, a plurality second spacing shafts 367 can be used to pivot through a support spacing hole 336 set on each support fin 333 and a second spacing slot 346 set on each swing gin 343 to limit the sandwiched angle of the support shaft 33 with the swing shaft 34 in each angle adjustment set 31. By the design of the first spacing slot 345 and the second spacing slot 346, when the combination strength of each first link shaft 351 and each second link shaft 352 in each activation device 35 is not enough, such a double protected safety mechanism is used to prevent the display 41 from falling by over-swinging such that an object of protecting the user and the display can be effectively achieved.

In summary, it is appreciated that the present invention is related to a support and more particularly to a display panel mount bracket. Spaces between each angle adjustment set can be mobile adjusted without limiting by conditions of the wall, as well as the sandwiched angle of the display and the wall can be adjusted by a stepless way to provide users an optimum angle of view.
