  • Patent number: 5964057
    Abstract: The invention relates to a plant holder with several essentially identically shaped elements (2), which are arranged in a vertical position when in use, and at least one supporting ring (3), which is arranged in a horizontal position when in use, which includes easily removable retention devices for retaining several vertical elements (2) along the perimeter of the supporting ring (3) and at heights corresponding to the vertical elements. The vertical elements (2) may exhibit an essentially rectangular profile. Recesses (10) for acceptance of the vertical elements can be arranged along the supporting ring, of which there is at least one, while protrusions (12) can be arranged along the lateral surfaces of the vertical elements which, when assembled, snap into corresponding grooves (11) in the recesses in the supporting ring (3).

  • Patent number: 5186459
    Abstract: Described is a process for stringing rackets for ball games, in particular tennis, with individual strings, and a tensioning device which is suitable for that purpose. Instead of the individual string which is introduced into the racket and arrested at one edge of the racket being gripped for the purposes of applying the required tensile force at the smooth individual string by means of clamping jaws, the tensile force is applied to a thickening on the string. In that way the individual string can be gripped and tensioned substantially more easily than hitherto. A suitable tensioning device for that purpose is also described.

  • Patent number: 4949968
    Abstract: A racket for ball games, in particular tennis, comprises a stringing system in the form of individual strings. The individual strings are each held in the racket frame by means of rivet sleeves, with the rivet heads bearing against the outer edges of the holes in the racket frame. In the event of a string breaking, there is no reaction on the adjoining strings, and only the broken string has to be changed. The individual strings which are provided for the first stringing or for replacement stringing have a fixedly disposed rivet sleeve at one end. In addition there is a loose rivet sleeve which is intended for being pushed on and connected after the string has been inserted into oppositely disposed holes. In addition described is a stringing device of simple design, by means of which individual strings can be easily replaced even by technically unskilled persons.
