Abstract

An adjustable locking mount system permits rotation about at least one of x, y, and z axes. Methods provide for rotating and rocking the mount to obtain the desired position, fixing the mount in the desired position, and mounting an object onto the mount.

  1. 1. An adjustable mount assembly comprising a pivot surface; a mount defining a mounting surface carried by the pivot surface for movement relative to at least one of an x-axis, a y-axis, and a z-axis, where the z-axis is the axis of the pivot surface; and a locking mechanism configured to free the mount for movement and to restrain the mount against movement.
  2. 2. An adjustable mount assembly comprising a pivot surface; a mount defining a mounting surface carried by the pivot surface for movement relative to at least one of an x-axis, a y-axis, and a z-axis, where the z-axis is the axis of the pivot surface; and locking means for freeing the mount for movement and for restraining the mount against movement.
