  • Patent number: 5092641
    Abstract: A cable and locking and sealing device which has a body member to which one end of a cable is attached and the other end passes through a hasp so as to lock it and then the free end of the cable is inserted into the body member in a first direction, but it cannot be removed in the second direction. A disk rides upon a ramp to lock the second end so that it cannot be removed from the body member and in the present invention, a flexible O-ring of rubber or "NEOPRENE" or other flexible material serves as a spring to bias the disk upwardly along the ramp to lock the cable.

  • Patent number: 4065946
    Abstract: A tamper proof attachment system is provided to secure a device such as a radio or tape deck in a vehicle. The looped cable passes through an anchoring point and the ends of the looped cable are locked and pass through an attachment device. The attachment device housing has an aperture in one end through which a mounting bolt is positioned and the head of the bolt is free to turn within the housing. The mounting bolt also passes through a mounting bracket and is threaded into a mounting surface of the vehicle. An open end of the attachment device housing is closed by a plug to cover the head of the bolt. In one embodiment the plug has apertures which align with apertures in the housing to permit the cable to pass through and to retain the plug in place. The device such as a tape deck or radio is fastened to the mounting bracket by bolts having tamper proof mounting covers according to the invention.
