Abstract: A latch for a cabinet door or drawer for preventing access to the interior of the cabinet or drawer. The latch includes a hook spring biased to engage a catch and that allows the door or drawer to be only slightly opened enough to allow a caregiver to reach the latch and displace it out of the way so that the door or drawer can then be fully opened. When released the latch returns to the biased position. The latch may also disengage the spring so as to be fully disabled and allow the door or drawer to be opened freely.
Abstract: A juvenile high chair includes at least one leg. The leg comprises a foot having a bottom edge adapted to engage a surface underlying the foot, a roller, and a bracket having a first end coupled to the leg, a second end coupled to the roller, and a center flexible portion extending between the first and second ends. The first and second ends are substantially parallel to each other when a portion of the wheel engages the surface and displaces the bottom edge of the leg from the surface.
Abstract: The present device relates to a retainer adapted to retain an arm in a position mounted for pivotable movement on a base, and particularly to a shield retainer for a juvenile seat including a pivotable barrier shield. More particularly, the present device relates to a retainer adapted to retain a pivotable barrier shield arm in a frame of a juvenile car seat.
Abstract: A swing assembly includes a support stand, a swing mounted on the support stand to swing back and forth along a swing arc, and a swing driver. The swing driver includes a drive belt coupled to the swing, a belt tensioner coupled to the drive belt to place the drive belt in tension, and a belt driver coupled to the drive belt. The belt driver moves the drive belt relative to the support stand while the drive belt remains in tension to apply force to the swing to sustain swinging movement of the swing along the swing arc. The drive belt includes a strap having a fixed end coupled to the support stand and a free end coupled to the belt tensioner. The drive belt has drive teeth that are appended to the strap and coupled to the belt driver.
Abstract: A juvenile chair is provided for seating a child. The chair includes a frame, a seat mounted on the frame for sliding movement along the frame, and a height-adjustment mechanism formed to fix the seat in a selected elevation on the frame. The frame includes a guide channel and the seat includes a track guide that slides in the guide channel. The frame further includes height-adjustment slots into which the height-adjustment mechanism locks at each respective elevation.
Abstract: A table includes first and second sections coupled together for pivotable movement therebetween and a pair of legs pivotably coupled to the respective sections to move between storage and support positions. The table further includes a pair of channels coupled to each section, a pair of struts coupled to each respective channel to slide therein, and a pair of collars having two substantially identical pieces pivotably coupling each strut to a leg. The table also includes a reinforcing assembly including a pair of rails coupled to the respective sections and a support pivotable relative to one rail and slidable relative to the other rail to provide a rigid member supporting the sections.
Abstract: A child-restraint seat for a vehicle comprising a seat shell including a bottom seat portion, a back support portion and a child-restraint harness wherein a harness-control panel positioned to lie adjacent to a front surface of the back support portion to cause a child seated in the seat shell to rest against the harness-control panel and formed to receive a shoulder belt portion of the child-restraint harness is mounted on the seat shell for up and down movement relative to the seat shell to raise and lower the shoulder belt portion of the child-restraint harness with respect to the bottom seat portion to harness small-sized children and large-sized children in a restrained position in the seat shell.
Abstract: A step stool comprising a frame having a front leg and a rear leg, a step having a top surface and a bottom surface and an opening in the top surface extending through to the bottom surface wherein the step is coupled to the front leg and coupled to the rear leg, and wherein there is a step blocker movable between an engaged position in which the blocker engages the frame and a retracted position in which the blocker does not engage the frame and an actuator grip to operate the block which grip is accessible from the top surface of the step through the aperture.
Abstract: A tray assembly comprises a tray, a crotch post, and a pivot post interconnecting the tray and the crotch post. The pivot post defines a fixed axis to enable pivotal movement of the crotch post about the fixed axis between an extended position wherein the crotch post extends at an angle away from the tray and a retracted position wherein the crotch post is positioned to lie adjacent to the tray.
Abstract: A juvenile crib frame includes first and second frame portions and a lock mechanism including a first member mounted for rotation on the first frame portion about a first axis and a second member mounted for rotation on the second frame portion about a second axis. The lock mechanism further includes a hinge pin arranged to couple the first member to the second member to cause the first member to pivot relative to the second member about a pivot axis that is perpendicular to at least one of the first and second axes.
Abstract: An apparatus is provided for supporting a child car seat on a vehicle seat having a seat belt. The apparatus includes a seat foundation that is adapted to lie upon the vehicle seat. The seat foundation includes a base with an upper surface that is adapted to receive the child car seat thereon, side walls that extend away from the upper surface, and a seat-belt mounting catch, which is positioned to lie in the upper surface in a location between the side walls. In addition, the seat foundation includes an auxiliary belt coupled to the base. The auxiliary belt is adapted to cooperate with the base to couple the child car seat upon the seat foundation.
Abstract: A tray assembly is provided for use with a seat having a seat back, a seat bottom, and arms. The tray assembly includes a tray and a latch coupled to the tray. The tray has an upper surface, first and second edges, and walls coupled to the edges and lower surface to define a cavity therebetween. A rib extends from at least one of the walls of the tray and the latch includes a slot for receiving the rib therein. In addition, the latch is configured to move between a latched position in which the latch is adapted to engage the arms of the seat and a release position in which the latch is adapted to disengage the arms of the seat.
