Claim of US Patent No. 10,798,830

1. A display apparatus comprising:a frame;
a display module comprising at least one substrate on which a plurality of light emitting elements is mounted, and a bracket to which the at least one substrate is attached;
a magnetic coupling device configured to couple the frame to the display module by pulling the display module toward the frame by using a magnetic attraction force;
a latch; and
a magnet mounted to the latch, wherein
the latch and the magnet are rotatable together as a same body between a locking position where the latch mechanically prevents the display module from being separated from the frame and an unlocking position where the latch allows the display module to be separated from the frame, in accordance with an external magnetic force applied to the magnet, and
the latch and the magnet are configured so that,
when one of an N pole and an S pole of an external magnet is moved to a front side of the display module, the external magnetic force is applied to the magnet to thereby cause the latch to be rotated from the unlocking position to the locking position and
when the other of the N pole and the S pole of the external magnet is moved to the front side of the display module, the external magnetic force is applied to the magnet to thereby cause the latch to be rotated from the locking position to the unlocking position.
