  • Patent number: 11819120
    Abstract: A locking mechanism is configured to automatically secure a first object to a second object when the objects are adjacent one another. The locking mechanism selectively releases the objects from one another in response to the movement of a third object. The locking mechanism includes a latch having a base, a pivoting portion attached to the base, with the pivoting portion configured to pivotally secure the latch to the first object about an axis (A). The latch also includes a securing portion attached to the base. A receiving surface is configured to contact the second object as it comes into proximity with the first object and pivot the latch about the axis (A) in a first direction. The securing portion also includes a hook configured to automatically secure the second object to the first object when the objects are adjacent to one another.

  • Patent number: 11642777
    Abstract: A latch mechanism is configured to secure two containers together and includes a housing, a latch, a main body and a primary hook. The latch is rotatably engaged to the housing and movable between a first position, wherein it can secure a second container to the housing, and a second position, wherein it cannot secure a second container to the housing. A stopper is slidably engaged to the latch and includes a locking surface and holding surface. A stopper bias biases the stopper toward an upper position such that when the latch is in its first position, the locking surface and primary hook create a negative space which receives and secures the second container to the housing, and when the latch is in its second position, the holding surface is configured to engage a second container and prevent the latch from rotating back to its first position.

  • Patent number: 11597074
    Abstract: A convertible sawhorse and work table assembly includes two sawhorse legs, a worktable and two pivoting support rods. The two support rods are pivotably attached to the work table near one end thereof and to one of the sawhorse legs at the other end thereof. When in the closed condition, the sawhorse legs are folded against each other, with the worktable folded along one of the legs and the two support rods folded against the other sawhorse leg. In a second condition, the sawhorse legs are pivoted away from each other with the worktable and support rods remaining folded against the legs. In a third condition, the table is pivoted upwardly away from the one sawhorse leg until it is disposed substantially horizontally above the sawhorse legs, and is then slid rearwardly relative thereto until the pivot support rods are fully extended away from the other sawhorse legs.

  • Patent number: 11491635
    Abstract: A sawhorse includes a modular work surface supported by a frame. The modular work surface includes a first side portion, a second side portion and a central portion. The modular work surface is configured to move between a compact configuration and an expanded configuration. In the compact configuration the first side portion and the second side portion are adjacent to one another to provide a compact worktop and the central portion is positioned beneath the compact worktop. In the expanded configuration, the first side portion and the second side portion are distal to one another and the central portion is positioned therebetween to create an expanded worktop.

  • Patent number: 11383422
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing an object is disclosed. The method includes the step of obtaining a preform of the object, with the preform having a first panel having a planar portion and at least one second panel. The second panel has an orientation which is different from that of the first panel. The planar portion of the first panel of the preform is thermoformed so as to have a protruding element. The thermoforming is done in a selective manner such that the at least one second panel is not thermoformed. The invention is also directed to a thermoforming device for performing the thermoforming.

  • Patent number: 10919141
    Abstract: The present application relates to a container or toolbox having a selectively removable lid. When the user is in need of a stool or step stool, she may unfold a leg assembly and step assembly contained within the lid. When the leg assembly is unfolded into its support position, the lid operates as a stool. Moreover, a step assembly may also be unfolded from the lid. In its deployed position, the step assembly provides an intermediate step beneath the upper surface of the lid. When the job is finished, the leg assembly and step assembly may be folded back into the lid such that the container may be used as a regular toolbox.
