Abstract: A method of applying a medicinal substance onto an area within a patient's body cavity includes providing an applicator formed by six integral sections. A proximal section is formed with an entry passage. An axial intermediate passage of the applicator extends from the entry passage through a flange section and a passage section. A slot section has a slot delivery passage communicating with the axial intermediate passage, and at least one axially-elongated slot therethrough. A solid section extends from the slot section, and a dome section extends to an end of the applicator. The method further includes locating the slot delivery passage adjacent the area within the cavity, forming a substance mass externally of the cavity, moving the mass into the slot delivery passage, and moving at least a portion of the substance onto the area.

Abstract: An apparatus for boosting the flow energy of water in a showerhead comprising an air inlet port for providing ambient air; a water conduit for receiving water from a water supply source and at least one mixing chamber being in fluid communication with the water conduit and the air inlet port for receiving the water and the air. The at least one mixing chamber has a rearward opening which tapers towards a forward reduced portion such that the velocity of the water entering the opening is increased and such that the air is mixed with the water within the chamber to provide a turbulent mixture of air and water. The above described apparatus is completely contained within a showerhead or embodied as an adapter unit which may be installed between a water outlet pipe and a typical prior art showerhead.
Abstract: A cylindrical lock assembly (20) includes an inside subassembly (22) and an outside subassembly (24) which are assembled with a door (326). Each subassembly (22,24) includes a rose liner (26,38), a return spring cassette (28,40), a rose (30,42), a lever (32,46) and a lever insert (34,48). The inside subassembly (22) also includes a turn button (36) and the outside subassembly (24) includes a cylinder lock (44).The lever inserts (34,48) are each formed from a plastic material with a first element (400) and a second element (414) which are integrally joined by a plastic ribbon (426). In one instance, the first and second elements (400,414) are separated from the ribbon (426) and are joined to form structure which fills voids in the exterior of the levers (32,46). The voids are necessary for the insertion of the cylinder lock (44) which contains, for example, six tumbler pins. In another instance, only the first element (400) is used where the cylinder lock (44) contains, for example, seven tumbler pins.

The inside subassembly (22) also includes a turn button (36) and the outside subassembly (24) includes a cylinder lock (44).The subassemblies (22,24) are assembled onto respective sleeves (168,170) of a chassis (50) which facilitates the retraction of a latchbolt (54) upon operation of either of the levers (32,46).Cassettes (28,40) are mounted in the lock assembly (20) by a pair of screws with one screw being inserted from one side of the door (326) and the other screw being inserted from the other side of the door.
Abstract: A lockset for a door comprising a latchbolt assembly movable between a partially extended latching position, a fully extended deadbolt position and a retracted position. A spindle extends through the latchbolt assembly in a direction transverse of the direction of movement of the bolt. The spindle is connected to the bolt for moving the bolt between its positions upon rotation of the spindle. An operating assembly includes a hand operator having a locking member therein, a first plate mounted for linear movement in a direction transverse to the axis of the spindle and having a pair of ears vertically spaced about and generally aligned with the longitudinal axis of the spindle. A pivotally mounted actuator member is movable in response to the hand operator and has first and second surfaces vertically spaced about and generally aligned with the longitudinal axis of the spindle and in engagement with the pair of ears such that pivotal movement of the actuator produces linear movement of the first plate.

Abstract: A unitary end bell 66 includes a body 90 and a bridging section 92 and is assembled with a lamination stack 74 in the formation of a stator subassembly 150. End bell 66 is formed with base surfaces 118 at one end thereof which insulate adjacent portions of lamination stack 74 from coil windings 152, and is further formed with wire-retaining shrouds 110 which retain coil windings 152 in a wound configuration. Bridging section 92, which straddles the other end of body 90, is formed with brush channels 120 for supporting brush boxes and a bearing nest 138 for supporting an armature bearing.Methods of assembling the elements to form stator subassembly 150, and various assembly aids such as shroud support 168 and pallet 212 are added.
