I would like to make a mount for my LCD monitor, since there aren't any mounts here.

I want the mount to go up and down, left and right, far and close.

This one: is easy to make, since gravity has nothing to do with it.

But if I want to make a similar one that also goes up and down, I won't be able to simply copy the way it moves left and right, because gravity will make the face of the monitor go all the way toward the ground. So, what can I do? How can I make it stop where I want it to stop?

You can see the monitor is easily moving up and down in this video: (00:20 to 00:25)

EDIT: someone suggested using springs, but I have no idea how that would happen! can you explain please? Or, if you have a better idea please suggest it.
