  • Patent number: 8695218
    Abstract: A joint construction includes first and second conduit sections having coaxially overlapping end areas. A coupling member has a first end received within the end of the first conduit section and a second end with external threads. A bore of the coupling member receives the second section end area. A plurality of protrusions are formed on an outer surface of the coupling member. The plurality of protrusions engage a plurality of complimentary features formed on the end area of the first conduit section. A gland nut has threads configured to engage the external threads of the second end of the coupling member. A washer is disposed on the second conduit section between the second end of the coupling member and the gland nut. The washer is configured to engage the end area of the second conduit section to resist relative axial movement between the first and second conduit sections.

  • Publication number: 20120248271
    Abstract: A clamp is disclosed for attaching a solar panel to a grid system. The clamp includes an upper end clamp, a clamp plate, a channel nut; and a fastener connecting the clamp, the clamp plate and the nut. A head of the fastener engages the upper end clamp and a threaded end of the fastener engages a hole in the channel nut so that rotation of the fastener fixes the clamp to a structural member. Rotation of the fastener also fixes a solar panel to the structural member. The upper end clamp has a side surface, and the clamp plate has a side surface. The side surfaces are in the same plane to enable them both to engage a side surface of the solar panel. The upper end clamp includes a protruding lip for engaging a top surface of a solar panel. Other embodiments are disclosed and claimed.
