  • Patent number: 9193570
    Abstract: An eyebolt for releasably connecting a carrying, lashing or traction member with an object includes a threaded bolt and an eyelet. The threaded bolt has an inner bearing part and the eyelet is connected to an outer bearing part which with the incorporation of rolling elements is supported on the inner bearing part. The rolling elements are disposed above one another in a ring around the inner bearing part in at least two planes extending spaced apart and parallel to one another. Rolling elements disposed in a first plane have a radius and rolling elements disposed in a second plane have a radius. The sum of the radius of one of the rolling elements disposed in the first plane and the radius of one of the rolling elements disposed in the second plane is greater than the spacing between the planes extending parallel to one another.

  • Publication number: 20050043132
    Abstract: The invention concerns a chain pulley block with a chain wheel for positive-locking transmission of the lift force to the chain and a chain guide arranged in the region of the chain wheel, for guiding the chain, especially a round-link chain, on the chain wheel. In order to make it fast, easy and inexpensive to replace wearing parts, such as chain (3), chain wheel (4) and chain guide (2), it is proposed that the chain guide (2), the chain wheel (4) and the chain (3) be assembled into a structural unit (1), which is removably fastened to the chain pulley block (7).
