  • Patent number: 10640030
    Abstract: Aspects hereof relate to a translating cargo assembly for a vehicle. The translating cargo assembly may include a translation mechanism, which may be affixed to a cargo frame of the vehicle. The translating cargo assembly may also include a carrier frame that is coupled with the translation mechanism and configured to mate with cargo implements. A drive mechanism, such as a rotary actuator, may be coupled with the translation mechanism. The rotary actuator may be effective to translate the carrier frame through a range of positions including a transport position, in which the carrier frame may be adjacent to the cargo frame, and a loading position, in which the carrier frame may be proximate ground level.

  • Publication number: 20190162164
    Abstract: A hydraulic motor assembly includes a flow controller, a displacement controller and a hydraulic motor. The flow controller controls the flow of hydraulic fluid through the hydraulic motor and the displacement controller controls motor displacement. The hydraulic motor converts the pressure and flow into angular displacement of a drive shaft. An electrical generator is connected to the motor drive shaft and provides electrical power to accommodate a varying electrical load. As the electrical load varies, the flow controller and displacement controller vary the flow and displacement of the hydraulic motor to vary the torque applied to the generator by the drive shaft so that the drive shaft rotates at a desired speed.

  • Patent number: 6435106
    Abstract: A table assembly consists of a table top supported by a leg assembly, which includes a vertical tubular leg member. The leg assembly further includes a foot member mounted to the lower end of each leg via a mounting member. The length of the foot member can be varied according to the width of the table top to selectively provide different sizes of tables according to user requirements, while the mounting member is usable for all sizes of legs and foot members to mount the foot member to the leg. A power/communication housing is mounted to the underside of the table top. The housing includes first and second passages isolated from each other via a wall, with power supply cabling and communication cabling placed within the first and second passages, respectively.

  • Patent number: 6250044
    Abstract: A towel bar attachable to bypass style shower doors. The towel bar has a support bar with two ends engaged with flanged escutcheons. The support bar and escutcheons are located at one side of a door with the escutcheons covering suitably sized and spaced apertures in the door. Two flanged fasteners are inserted into the door apertures from an opposite side of the door to mate with the bar ends. Tightening the fastener biases the flanges toward opposite surfaces of the door to secure the towel bar to the door. The fasteners each have a recessed grip defining handles for sliding the door from the side opposite that from which the bar projects.

  • Patent number: 6148451
    Abstract: A shower door assembly is disclosed that has a connector vertically slidably attached to a lower door. The connector corrects for out of plumb conditions when linked to a curb rail, and inhibits door swing. The connector may be assembled after the curb is mounted to a surface due to a transverse lateral connection involving multi-rotatonal positions.
