  • Patent number: 7739830
    Abstract: A vacuum-creating fly swatter. A blade is flat and a handle is hand-held, slender, elongated, and extends from the blade. The blade has a plurality of through bores that are diamond-shaped and extend in a specific configuration forming a vacuum when the blade is swatted, thereby sucking in a fly. The plurality of through bores include one central through bore and four peripheral through bores. The four peripheral through bores, each of which is 1 cm high and ½ cm wide, are positioned substantially at corners of a rectangle. Two peripheral through bores are ½? from a forward edge of the blade, are 2¾? apart from each other, and are ?? from a pair of side edges of the blade, respectively. The other two peripheral through bores are 2½? back from the two peripheral through bores, are 2¾? apart from each other, and are ½? from the pair of side edges, respectively. The one central through bore is central to the four peripheral through bores, is 1½ cm high, and is 1 cm wide.

  • Patent number: 7603838
    Abstract: An edging attachment for a rotary lawn mower having a housing with a side wall and a cutting blade. The edging attachment comprises a flat bracket having a forward override angular edge. A mechanism is for mounting the flat bracket to the housing, so that it will extend down in a vertical position against the side wall, whereby the forward override angular edge will ride over obstructions on a lawn. A mechanism is for forcing grass on the lawn to move downwardly under the side wall towards the cutting blade to cut the grass. A mechanism is for deflecting the rotary lawn mower away from fences and other projections on the lawn. A guide assembly is adjustably connected vertically to the flat bracket, so that it can be pivotally retained in an upper inoperative position and a lower operative position.
