  • Patent number: 6365831
    Abstract: An electrical outlet box of all shapes and sizes for use with one or more electrical cables having an enclosure with a peripheral wall and a bottom. The peripheral wall upstands from the bottom and has a plurality of cable openings therein. The cable openings each close by a door. The door is pivotally connected to the bottom for rotary motion from a closed position generally parallel to the wall about an axis generally parallel to the bottom to an open position within the enclosure. The door has a peripheral edge remote from its connection to the bottom which clamps a cable positioned in the box between the wall and the door wall. The door is biased toward the wall and has door guides associated therewith to ensure the movement of the door about the axis and to prevent cable from being lodged between the door and the door guides out of engagement with the peripheral edge of the door.

  • Patent number: 4133245
    Abstract: A fastening device for use with conventional threaded, knurled, serrated, or smooth cylindrical studs comprising a cylindrical bore, the bore having a counter sink at one end thereof and a counter bore at the other end thereof, and a tubular fastener formed of relatively thin spring steel positioned within the bore. The fastener is slotted from end to end to be resiliently compressible, and thereby useable within bores of different diameters. At one end, the fastener has a rigid collar larger than the member which fits within the counter sink of the bore. The fastener adjacent the other end has a plurality of fingers, which are positioned in the counter bore. The fingers are folded so as to extend radially outwardly of the member at a position remote from the distal ends thereof to form an enlarged portion which substantially fills the counter bore, and are folded adjacent the distal ends so as to position the distal ends radially inwardly of the fastener.
