  • Patent number: 10815036
    Abstract: A sliding lid construction includes an upper-side lid member and lower-side lid member sliding relatively to one another, thereby changing their relative positional relationships at the open position and close position. At the open position, the upper-side lid member and lower-side lid member overlap one another in the up/down direction; at the close position, they cancel the overlap. The lower-side lid member includes a lower-side comb-shaped portion provided with protrusions and depressions on the top face in the width direction crossing the sliding direction perpendicularly, and a placement portion enabling a user to place an article thereon. The upper-side lid member includes an upper-side comb-shaped portion provided with protrusions and depressions on the bottom face in the width direction, and an inclined-face portion formed at the leading-side end in the sliding direction, and directed upward at an acute angle obliquely to the sliding direction.

  • Patent number: 10807561
    Abstract: An airbag includes panels, which face each other, of an outer peripheral wall upon inflation configured to change a thickness of the airbag from a thickened part to a thinned part by a tether coupled to the panels. The tether is divided into a plurality of pieces along a direction in which the panels face each other, and is thus configured by a plurality of divided pieces to be sewn each other at a linear sewing line. A panel-side divided piece sewn to the panel has a wide part, a narrow part and a width-changing part, which correspond to a thickness dimension changed from the thickened part to the thinned part. A panel-side edge of the panel-side divided piece has a shape including a curve part corresponding to the thickness dimension, and is sewn with being overlapped in a planar shape to the panel.
