Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,228

1. A support mechanism, at least comprising:a first support plate,
a second support plate, and
a transmission mechanism for connecting the first support plate with the second support plate, wherein:
when the support mechanism is in a support state, the first support plate and the second support plate are in a first relative position with respect to each other to form a support surface;
when the transmission mechanism is acted on by an external force, the transmission mechanism drives the first support plate to rotate in a first direction and drives the second support plate to rotate in a second direction, until the first support plate is level with the second support plate to form the support surface; the first direction is opposite to the second direction;
the transmission mechanism at least comprises: a first transmission gear lever, a second transmission gear lever, and a pushing bar; wherein a first end of the first transmission gear lever is connected to a lower surface of the first support plate; a first gear is arranged on an end face of a second end of the first transmission gear lever; the first transmission gear lever is connected with the pushing bar; a third end of the second transmission gear lever is connected to a lower surface of the second support plate; a second gear is arranged on an end face of a fourth end of the second transmission gear lever;
when the pushing bar is acted on by the external force, the pushing bar drives the first transmission gear lever to slide relative to the first support plate and drives the first transmission gear lever to rotate in the first direction; during rotation of the first transmission gear lever in the first direction, the first transmission gear lever drives, by bring the first gear into engagement with the second gear, the second transmission gear lever to slide relative to the second support plate and rotate in the second direction, so that the first support plate rotates in the first direction and the second support plate rotates in the second direction, until the first support plate is level with the second support plate to form a plane.
