  • Patent number: 9475418
    Abstract: The present invention includes a vehicle interior debris deflector, for obstructing a gap between a passenger seat, a console unit and a safety belt receiving element, including an inflatable chamber having a first side and second side fused to one another along a seam. When placed in the gap between the seat, the console unit and the belt element, the inflatable chamber extends longitudinally from a front portion of the passenger seat to a back portion of the passenger seat and is adjacent and abutting to the console unit. A valve is embedded in one of the first side and the second side for adding and removing fluid from the inflatable chamber. When the chamber is partially inflated, the chamber expands and compresses to fill the gap and can slide parallel to the seat, the console unit and the safety belt element without losing expansion and compression.

  • Patent number: 4679341
    Abstract: A modular display apparatus for receiving and displaying sign panels, in which panel support elements co-operate with elevated ridges and frame overlay members to form sign panel regions in which the sign panels may be deployed. Panel insert slots are formed at one end of the panel sign region where no elevated ridge is positioned, through the overlay of a frame strut; the insert slot serving as an insertion aperture for the facilitated receipt and/or removal of the sign panel. A back cover plate member is integrated into the support panel and insert locking devices are provided to maintain the sign panel in place, within the sign display region, by precluding inadvertent removal through the insert slot. A "stepped" or staggered configuration of a number of such sign panels as well as a back-lit light transmitting embodiment are further described.
