  • Patent number: 11059161
    Abstract: A joint fixing structure of a hand-held power tool includes a fixing base connected with a tool head. Two opposite sides of the fixing base have through holes with movable balls. The fixing base is surrounded by a C-shaped ring with two protrusions. The C-shaped ring is surrounded by a control ring that has an circular outer surface and an inner surface provided with two recesses. The control ring is operated to rotate relative to the C-shaped ring between an unlocked position and a locked position. When in the unlocked position, the protrusions go into the recesses, making the C-shaped ring not press the balls so that the tool head can be pivoted freely. When in the locked position, the tool head is locked by the balls being pressed by the deformation of the C-shaped ring due to the motion of the protrusions out of the recesses.

  • Patent number: 11027438
    Abstract: A positive positioning device comprises a plurality of stacked plates, a body, a spring-biased piston and a piston release device. The plurality of stacked plates have a central opening defined to receive a pivot shaft. The body houses the plurality of stacked plates and has an internal bore within which a cylinder is defined. The spring-biased piston is shaped to slide within the bore to apply a force to the stacked plates to resist rotation of a pivot shaft inserted through the central opening in the stacked plates. The piston release device is actuatable by a user to release the piston to decrease force applied to the stacked plates and allow free rotation of the pivot shaft.
