  • Publication number: 20220243429
    Abstract: A ground engaging tip of a ground engaging tip assembly includes an adapter that attaches to the base edge and having a forwardly extending adapter nose, and a ground engaging tip. The tip has a rear edge and a top and bottom outer surfaces. The top and bottom outer surfaces extend forward from the rear edge of the ground engaging tip and converge at a front edge of the tip. The tip includes first and second side outer surfaces extending forward from the rear edge to the front edge. Tip includes a nose cavity for receiving the adapter nose therein. The nose cavity has first and second side inner surfaces opposite the first and second side outer surfaces, respectively. The nose cavity has an aperture and a retention channel on at least one of the first and second side inner surfaces. The retention channel extends from the rear edge to the aperture and guides a lug of the adapter into the aperture during installation of the ground engaging tip on the adapter.

  • Patent number: 11118329
    Abstract: A retainer sleeve for use with a lock in a ground engaging tool. The retainer sleeve may include an outer skirt extending around a retainer axis, where the outer skirt may include an outer surface formed to mate with a lock cavity of the ground engaging tool. The retainer sleeve can further include an inner sleeve flexibly connected to the outer skirt via a lower bend. The inner skirt may be formed to rotatably receive an outer surface of the lock. The retainer sleeve may also include a detent projection extending radially inward from the inner skirt with respect to the retainer axis and formed to engage a detent recess of the lock to releasably hold the lock.
