AbstractA vehicle console (18) has a housing (22) including an upper compartment (30) with mounting portions (48,50,52) for mounting a video unit (32) in an inclined orientation. A screen (34) of the video unit is observed through an opening (46) in a rear end (38) of an upper compartment closure (36). The inclined mounting of the video unit (32) causes it to load a connection (40) of the upper closure (36) without excessively loading a latch (44) thereof upon abrupt vehicle deceleration. A ratchet and strap assembly (98) provides for convenient securement of the console and includes a ratchet (100) and a strap (102) having connectors (108) for attaching the strap to the vehicle whereupon the strap is tightened by the ratchet. The console housing (22) also includes a lower compartment (78) for an operating unit for the video unit (32) as well as including upper and intermediate forward compartments (82,84) and a rear intermediate compartment ( 94).
