When assembling, the clasping sheet 52 is fixed in the groove cavity 4 after the screw 8 passes through the screw hole 221, the fixing hole 521, the screw hole 121. In this way, the cover 5 and the backplane 1 are assembled.
Afterward, the screw hole 511 on the main body 51 aligns with other installing holes (not shown). In this way, the connecting structure between the cover 5 and the backplane 1 are strengthened.
It is to be understood that the clasping sheets may be respectively arranged on both of the cover 5 and the backplane 1 to reduce the materials and to simply the assembly process. As such, corresponding clasping structures are not needed for the main body 51 and the backplane 1.
The structure of the cover 5 and the backplane 1 integrates the assembly of the cover 5 and the backlight module. Therefore, the assembly efficiency is enhanced.
FIGS. 3 and 4 show the cover for the backlight module in accordance with the second embodiment.
In the embodiment, two snaps 522 are provided on two bending portions of the clasping sheet 52. Two slots 122 are provided in corresponding locations of the side plate 12 of the backplane 1. When the clasping sheet 52 is received in the groove cavity 4, the snaps 522 engage with the slots 122 so as to assemble the cover 5 and the backplane 1.
Afterward, the screw hole 511 on the main body 51 aligns with other installing holes (not shown). In this way, the connecting structure between the cover 5 and the backplane 1 are strengthened. It is to be understood that the clasping sheets may be respectively arranged on both of the cover 5 and the backplane 1 to reduce the materials and to simply the assembly process. As such, corresponding clasping structures are not needed for the main body 51 and the backplane 1.
In one embodiment, a liquid crystal display includes the above-mentioned backlight module.
In view of the above, the cover includes clasping sheets provided on at least one edge portion of the body. The clasping sheet is fixed in the groove cavity so as to fix the backplane and the cover.
