  • Patent number: 10395854
    Abstract: A spring cap for an electrical switching apparatus having a housing, a stationary contact, a movable contact disposed on a moving arm, and a crossbar assembly. The crossbar assembly includes a crossbar, a first contact spring, a second contact spring, and a spring clip. The moving arm is coupled to the crossbar. The spring cap includes a first segment structured disposed between the spring clip and the first contact spring, a second segment disposed between the spring clip and the second contact spring, and a connecting portion connecting the first segment to the second segment. The spring clip is disposed between the moving arm and the contact springs. The spring cap supports the spring clip and evenly distribute bias forces of the contact springs.

  • Publication number: 20190153744
    Abstract: Tents and canopies are ubiquitous for outdoor recreation and gatherings. Tents and canopies are poorly lit, especially during night time. Camping lights such as lanterns are ineffective for lighting the entire space of a tent or canopy. To address these issues, a lighting apparatus can improve the quality of lighting inside a tent or a canopy by lighting a tent using a plurality of flexible strips having lighting elements thereon and providing a housing enclosing a lighting controller circuit for controlling the lighting elements. The flexible strips are electrically coupled to the lighting controller and extends away from the lighting controller. The housing can be hung inside, near the top center point of the tent or canopy to illuminate not only the area inside the tent or canopy, but also the tent or canopy itself. The lighting apparatus has a unique physical design suited for tents, canopies, and automobiles.

  • Patent number: 10213665
    Abstract: The invention provides a golf club head with a lid or cover enclosing a recess such as a channel for an adjustable weight. A golf club head can include a multi-position weight track or other channel or concavity to house a feature such as an adjustable weight mechanism. The club head has a lid that covers the channel, which—when closed—provides an outer surface of the golf club head that does not collect dirt or make whistling sounds when used and thus removes distractions and maintains the club head's intended weight distribution.

  • Publication number: 20190016060
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a hot melt device comprising a heating device that is automatically or manually triggered is configured so as to have its melt surface applied bringing a thermoplastic material in its solid form into contact with a surface via mechanical extrusion; using a heater to heat the thermoplastic material to a temperature above a melting temperature of the thermoplastic material while maintaining the contact of the thermoplastic material with the surface; allowing the heated thermoplastic material to cool to a temperature that is below the thermoplastic material's melting temperature; and allowing the heated thermoplastic material to bond the hot melt apparatus to the contacted surface without a solvent or use of a curing chemical reaction when the heated thermoplastic material is cooled to below the thermoplastic material's melting temperature while remaining connected to the structural body.

  • Patent number: 10086238
    Abstract: The invention provides a golf club head constructed from multiple components formed of different materials. In particular, a club head of the present disclosure includes a club head body, such as a cast or forged body portion, made from a first metal, and at least one removable component configured to be releasably attached to the club head body, the removable component being made from a second metal that is different than the first metal. The golf club head includes a semi-hollow, or completely hollow-bodied, ball-striking face cartridge made from at least titanium. In some embodiments, the hollow face cartridge may be integrally formed with the club head body. In other embodiments, the hollow face cartridge may be formed separately from the club head body and may be removed from and re-attached to the club head body.

  • Patent number: 9968833
    Abstract: The invention generally relates to golf clubs with adjustable mass properties. In certain aspects, the invention provides methods and mechanisms for adjusting a club head center of gravity and/or moment of inertia by way of an adjustable weight assembly positionable along the sole of the club head body. When in a first position, the weight assembly provides a lower center of gravity so as to increase launch angle and reduce spin rate, resulting in greater overall distance of ball flight. When in a second position, the weight assembly provides a greater mass moment of inertia, which effectively enlarges the sweet spot and produces a more forgiving club for off-center hits.

  • Patent number: 9901794
    Abstract: The invention provides a golf club head with a fully removable component that can withstand the stress of repeated hits. When assembled, the removable component is held in place by a fastening mechanism that includes structural elements that distribute the holding force across the component and tend to equalize the forces around the periphery where the component meets the body. The fastening mechanism may include a post that reaches across the open space within the hollow club head, pulling the removable component towards an opposed main club head body. Since a golf club of the present invention can be opened, it may include a mechanism on the inside for use by a golfer, such as an electronic device or an adjustment mechanism. The golf club may include a weight adjustment system that allows the club to be custom-fitted to a golfer.

  • Patent number: 9855474
    Abstract: The invention provides a golf club head that includes a weight adjustment system inside of the club head. Preferably, when the club is played, no part of the adjustment system is directly accessible or exposed to an exterior of the club. The club head may include a panel that opens or is removable, or the club head may be disassembled to provide access to the internal weight adjustment system. A weight adjustment system generally includes at least one mechanism by which a mass distribution of the golf club head can be changed.

  • Patent number: 9764210
    Abstract: The invention provides a golf club head with an opening covered from within by a lightweight cap. The opening can be part of, e.g., a weight track. The club head includes a crown, sole, face, and hosel cooperating to define a hollow club head body comprising at least a first material. The club head has an opening through the hollow body. Part of an edge around the opening is provided by a first material and a cap member of a second material less dense than the first material is mounted e.g., by an adhesive to an inside surface of the hollow body and enclosing the opening. The described construction is easier to mold or cast that other forms featuring undercuts and does not unduly interfere with a club head center of gravity.
