  • Patent number: 5489026
    Abstract: A cartonless packaging system is provided which significantly reduces packaging waste and includes a container for containing a liquid and a nozzle disposed in one end of the container for dispensing of the liquid from the container. A cap is provided for enclosing the nozzle, and the cap is configured for being removably attached to the container. A support system is provided which encircles the nozzle for removably supporting a plurality of tablets with the support being disposed beneath the cap means when the cap means is attached to the container. In addition, instructional materials are incorporated into the cartonless packaging system, and thus no separate packaging materials are necessary for providing the separate elements to the consumer.

  • Patent number: 5374088
    Abstract: A releasable plug-in connector for receiving a tubular plug-in part having a peripheral retaining rib. The plug-in connector consists of a housing having a cylindrical receiving space for receiving the plug-in part, and a separate securing ring made from a hard/resilient plastic material. The ring has retaining edges directed inwardly in the form of an arc of a circle that are pushed apart as the plug-in part is pushed into the connector and that then spring back elastically and engage behind the retaining rib after the plug-in part has been pushed in to lock the part in the connector. The retaining edges are connected to one another at their ends by a pair of V-shaped spring webs that are accessible from the outside of the housing so that they can be pushed into an unlocked position permitting the part to be pulled out of the connector.

  • Patent number: 5224805
    Abstract: An anchoring plug made from a hard-elastic plastic material having a closed shank part 1 and two mutually opposite spreading fingers 2 and 3. A screw hole 10, extends through the shank part 1 down into a central space 12 between the spreading fingers for receipt of a screw 18. To be able to drive the plug directly into gypsum board without having to first drill a hole, one spreading finger 2 is longer than the other spreading finger and has a hook-shaped tip 4 forming a recess 5 at its free end. Initially the end of the shorter spreading finger 3 nests in this recess to provide a pointed end to the plug, but springs free of the recess when a screw is screwed into the plug.

  • Patent number: 4470179
    Abstract: A fastener clip for fastening round stock to support bodies including an integral base and a pair of side walls defining a U-shaped fastening space. Elastically spreadable insertion walls are connected near their outer ends by easily bendable hinge strips to the side walls and extend into the fastening space in a V-shape fashion. Bosses on the side walls adjacent the hinge strips and slightly spaced from the hinge strips prevent outward pivoting of the insertion walls. A fastener foot on the base allows the clip to be fastened to a support body.
