  • Patent number: 4124915
    Abstract: A hand tool especially adapted for cleaning automotive windows and windshields has a plate set in the head of a handle and provided with an ice-scraping edge. A squeegee, also set in the head, has a blade for wiping away slush and fog as well as ice broken loose by the edged plate. The rigid plate has a snap fit into the head and a lock for holding the flexible squeegee against displacement. The plate and the blade have strategic locations on the head in relation to each other such as to eliminate the need for tool turn-over or other difficult, time-consuming maneuvers during successive scraping and wiping actions across the surface being cleaned.

  • Patent number: 4086831
    Abstract: A screwdriver including a relatively large teardrop-shaped, hollow handle, comfortable to the hand for delivering increased turning power, is provided with a self-contained ratchet mechanism which, in turn, has a three-position ratchet control (forward, reverse and lock). The shank of the screwdriver houses a magnet for releasably holding any one of a number of bits in place during use. The handle has a series of finger-engageable projections on its stem to assist the operator in applying torque and for storage of bits therein. A retainer ring on the stem holds the bits in the chambers until indexed to a bit-releasing position.

  • Patent number: 4041564
    Abstract: An extensible scraping and brushing tool for use in removing ice and snow from vehicle windows or the like has an elongate handle provided with a scraper member at one end and has a brush assembly that is telescopically received in the handle. The brush assembly is nested in the handle when the tool is to be used as a scraper or as a brush of a relatively short length or, the brush assembly may be extended from such a first position to a second position in which the brush assembly extends beyond the handle in order that the tool may be used as a brush having an extended reach. Guide structure for reciprocably shifting the brush assembly and retaining the same in connection with the handle is formed integrally as a part of the handle and brush assembly and is of a configuration providing a relatively high degree of rigidity at the point of connection between the two when the tool is in its extended condition.
