  • Patent number: 10941798
    Abstract: A snap connector for rapid mounting of fittings in a rectangular hole in a thin wall. The snap connector includes a head part to be arranged on an outer side of the thin wall. A body part penetrates the hole when mounted. Separate retaining elements protrude from said body part, and the free end of the retaining elements is provided with a first oblique face for trap-like holding and a second oblique face for play-free supporting of the body part on or against the rim or edge of the hole in the other, inner side of the thin wall. The retaining element is a slide that is guided by walls of a channel of substantially rectangular cross-section which is formed by the body part and has opposite walls. The walls have reinforcing ribs, transverse to the channel axis, on the outer wall face facing away from the channel.

  • Patent number: 10125913
    Abstract: An articulated adjusting foot including a base plate having a receiving space on the side of the plate remote of the floor and which has the geometry of a partial ball, preferably with dimensions slightly exceeding a hemisphere, further having a threaded rod which has at its one end a partial ball that can be inserted into the receiving space. The partial ball of the threaded rod can be fittingly received in the receiving space. The threaded rod is a conventional screw bolt with hexagon head. The ball, which can be inserted into the receiving space, is formed of two parts, e.g., halves (half-shells), which can be inserted one into the other and which enclose the hexagon head in a torsionally rigid manner. The geometry of the partial balls of the threaded rod exceeds that of the receiving space axially in direction of the threaded shaft.
