  • Patent number: 10995522
    Abstract: An enclosure for improving padlock security is provided. The enclosure includes a sleeve component that has openings at the left and right for receiving the padlock, cutouts at the top to access the shackle holes and a key slot at the bottom for accessing the padlock. The sleeve component containing the padlock is inserted into a tubular component. The tubular component has an opening at the bottom for receiving the sleeve component and padlock, one or more stoppers, capable of contacting the body of the padlock preventing further insertion of the padlock, while allowing the shackle to continue past, cutouts on the front and back sides of the enclosure beginning at the stoppers and proceeding upward and an opening at the top for accessing the shackle.

  • Patent number: 9963916
    Abstract: The present anchor device provides a support for holding a security anchor within a hole, such as a grommet hole, formed through a work surface, such as a table top, a shelf, or other board or sheet. The security anchor has a loop for attaching a lock or receiving a cable lock wrapped about the loop and a cross member to prevent the withdrawal of the security anchor from the grommet hole. The anchor device has a cross member optionally with a dipped portion that supports the loop of the security anchor. The present support device prevents the security anchor from falling down through the hole, while holding the loop of the security anchor just within the hole and within easy grasp of the user.

  • Patent number: 9861091
    Abstract: The present improved animal trap and unique catch release mechanism eliminates substantial eating or removal of the bait without the trap activating and provides a dual means to activate the trap. This is accomplished by the present catch release mechanism having a sliding member which slides within a hole through the platform of the trap under the influence of gravity and a prop which holds at least a portion of the trap platform above a support surface. When the prop is destabilized by an external force, the prop's support of the platform is disturbed, permitting the platform to fall toward the support surface. The platform falls relative to the sliding member; and the sliding member is forced toward the catch by contact with the support surface, thus pushing the catch so that the catch releases the holding arm bar to activate the trap.

  • Publication number: 20170252762
    Abstract: The present lid and sprayer provides a safe and labor-saving means to pressurize the interior of a pressure vessel through the use of a valve stem. The valve stem extends from the top of the lid, aligned with the cylindrical axis of the lid and protected from damaging impact. The valve stem may be protected by the gripping portion of the lid and may be protected by other enclosing structures within the lid. The user partially fills the pressure vessel, and attached the present lid. Then, the air chuck of a compressor is attached to the valve stem to pressurize the pressure vessel. Thus, the user may spray a liquid from the sprayer without the need for manual pumping.

  • Patent number: 9131676
    Abstract: The present improved animal trap and unique catch eliminates substantial eating or removal of the bait without the trap activating. This is accomplished by an improved catch which supports a piece of bait, and in turn, the bait blocks the movement of the holding arm bar. Only upon disturbance of the bait, will the holding arm bar be permitted to release from the catch due to the bait no longer blocking the movement of the holding arm bar. One embodiment accomplishes this action through a bait gap formed in the catch. The holding arm bar is aligned with the bait gap, such that the holding arm bar should pass through the bait gap in order for the pivoting kill bar hammer to snap closed against the top surface of the platform.

  • Patent number: 8935943
    Abstract: A securement device is provided to secure a portable item from unauthorized movement or theft. A first bracket engages a first portion of the item, second bracket engages a second portion of the item, and an elongated member spans the portable item to attach the first bracket to the second bracket to prevent significant separation of the first and second brackets when in the secured configuration. An aperture or recess in the second bracket receives a plug or attached device, where the plug or attached device is plugged into a receptacle in the item. When the attached device or plug is situated within the aperture or recess in the first bracket and the first bracket is engaged to the item, the first bracket is prevented from lateral and rotational movement relative to the item. A lock may be attached to the securement device to secure the item to an anchor.

  • Patent number: 8720097
    Abstract: A trigger lock is provided with a shield member having a U-shaped channel forming a first plate and a second plate spaced apart from the first flange, with a web connecting the first and second plates. The shield member has a peripheral contour that is complementarily shaped to closely match the transition contour of a firearm, in the region of the firearm frame transitioning between the thick frame and the thin trigger guard. The shield member is fitted over the trigger guard, with the trigger guard situated within the U-shaped channel. A plug is inserted through an aperture in the first plate, through the trigger guard, and through a second aperture in the second plate. The plug is secured within the shield member by a lock attached to the end of the plug protruding from the second aperture, thus preventing access to the trigger and preventing removal or substantial movement.

  • Patent number: 8646294
    Abstract: A securement system is provided that permits the secured locking of an ultra-portable laptop computer without requiring the use of a universal security slot. The system includes an edge member that has a body channel intersecting a screen channel formed on a face. When the laptop is open, the edge of the laptop screen fits within the screen channel and the edge of the laptop body fits within the body channel, with the edge member being positioned astride the hinge between the screen and body. A cross member connects the edge member to an opposite edge member engaged over the opposite edge of the laptop. When secured, the system cannot be removed from the laptop, since the two edge members are prevented from movement due to the cross member and the channels.
