Abstract: A bag buffer is applied to a bag, the bag buffer consisting of two plates, springs, and a sponge, the springs and the sponge being disposed between the two plates, such that the bag buffer can effectively buffer outside shocks to protect articles contained in the bag as well as to easily carry and use the articles.
Abstract: A connector for tubular poles of a dome type tent includes a disk shaped based section with a central aperture surrounded by upstanding walls at each of opposite sides of the base section. The upstanding walls are reinforced by cross walls in the aperture. Sockets are formed by walls on opposite sides of the base section. The sockets are equiangularally arranged so that the socket extend radially about the base section for receiving end portions of the tubular poles. An elastic member extending from the end of each pole is threaded through an opening in an anchor wall separating a socket from the central aperture. The end portion of the elastic member in the aperture is tied in a knot whereby the pole cannot be completely separated from the connector.
