  • Patent number: 10344824
    Abstract: A block lock for connecting two chain ends is disclosed including two opposing block lock halves extending in the longitudinal direction when the block lock is in the locked state, which interlockingly engage in each other, and which lock to form at least one receiving opening for receiving a chain link. The block lock halves are pivotably coupled together in the region of a pivoting end such that the block lock halves can be shifted into an open position or locked position by performing the pivoting movement. In the locked position, the block lock halves integrally engage in one another at an opposite locking end and can be locked.

  • Patent number: 9976627
    Abstract: The invention relates to a block lock for connecting two chain ends which comprises two block lock halves which extend in the longitudinal direction and which engage with each other in a positive fit via pins and grooves and lock to form two seating openings, each one to receive a chain link. The seating openings are separated by a crossbar which extends from one of the block lock halves to the opposite block lock half, wherein the block lock halves are coupled so as to rotate about the crossbar and/or on an end of a block lock half, a pin which protrudes in the direction of the opposite block lock half, which engages laterally in one lateral seating groove formed on one end of the opposite block lock half, when carrying out a relative rotational movement of both block lock halves.

  • Patent number: 8793969
    Abstract: A round steel chain has chain links articulated to one another, wherein the individual chain links each have opposite chain bends, which are connected to one another by chain legs. At least every second chain link is designed as a flat link, wherein the chain legs of the flat link are flattened at the edges in the cross-section of the chain legs and have a leg width greater than the diameter of the chain bends, such that the areas of the chain legs extending beyond the diameter to the leg width form lateral bulges, which extend up to the chain bends or into the chain bends, and chain bends have thickened sections arranged on the longitudinal outer surfaces of the chain bends.

  • Patent number: 7690183
    Abstract: Disclosed is a chain lock for round steel chains, comprising two lock halves, each of which is provided with a rear section (4, 5) that extends in the longitudinal direction of the chain lock (1) as well as coupling sections (6 to 9) that adjoin the ends of the rear section (4, 5). One respective coupling section (6, 8) is fitted with a locking pin (16) which extends perpendicular to a parting plane (TE) of the chain lock (1) and encompasses a web-like projection (22) at the free end (18) thereof, on the side facing the other coupling section (7, 9). The projection (22) borders a pocket that extends from one side surface (20) to another side surface (21) of the lock half (2, 3) and accommodates a forked leg (26) of the other lock half (2, 3), which conforms to the contour of the pocket (23). The pocket (23) has external, essentially rectilinear flanks (27, 28) which face the side surfaces (20, 21), the angle (W1) enclosed by the flanks (27, 28) ranging from 120° to 150°.
