  • Patent number: 4343973
    Abstract: An improved low cost electrical switch has a two-piece housing comprising a base and an escutcheon. The escutcheon includes a frame and a face plate which is flexible, resilient and insulative. Application of downward finger pressure on the face plate causes the face plate to deform, thereby urging a snap action dome into a shorting position across a pair of electrical contacts.

  • Patent number: 4246520
    Abstract: A motor energizing control and reversing circuit designed to be used on a power seat control in vehicles. The circuit includes a reversible motor that primarily drives suitable gear trains which effect seat movement in a plurality of directions and then momentarily reverses the motor so as to apply moving power to the gear train in an opposite direction to relieve pressure thereon and prevent a locked rotor condition in which the seat could not be moved.

  • Patent number: 4230922
    Abstract: A boot seal assembly for external movable members such as switch actuators. The assembly includes a cooperating structural support that provides a guide for the movable member as well as a retaining seat for a fixed portion of the boot seal. The movable member provides a retaining means for the remaining collapsible portion of the boot seal without affecting the direction of travel or required operating force for the movable member.
