  • Patent number: 10702026
    Abstract: Disclosed is a clip for a bracelet and/or a necklace. The clip in a closed state having a through hole (402) allowing the clip to wreathe an elongated member of a bracelet and/or necklace. The clip comprises: a first part (420) and a second part (430), the first and second parts being connected by a hinge (401); and a first resilient element (460) arranged in the second part. The first resilient element comprising a first gripping surface (451) for frictionally gripping a surface of the elongated member. The second part comprises a cavity (443) extending in the radial direction, the first resilient element comprises a first resilient part (460) arranged inside the cavity and a second resilient part (470) arranged outside the cavity and extending in the radial direction from the cavity into the through hole. The cavity is configured to secure the first resilient element in said second part.

  • Patent number: 10689091
    Abstract: A wing airframe for a wing of a tiltrotor aircraft includes a wing airframe core assembly and a wing skin assembly disposed on the wing airframe core assembly. The wing skin assembly includes a lower wing skin assembly disposed on the bottom side of the wing airframe core assembly. The tiltrotor aircraft includes a fuselage underneath the wing. The lower wing skin assembly has one or more buckle zones outboard of the fuselage. The buckle zones are locally susceptible to buckling in response to an impact of the tiltrotor aircraft, thereby protecting the fuselage from being crushed by the wing.

  • Patent number: 10681964
    Abstract: Disclosed is a clip (100) for a bracelet and/or a necklace. The clip in a closed state having a through hole (102) allowing said clip to wreathe an elongated member (301) of a bracelet and/or necklace. The clip comprises: a first part (120) and a second part (130), the first and second parts being connected by a hinge (101); and a resilient element (150) arranged in the second part. The resilient element comprising a first gripping surface for frictionally gripping a surface (151) of the elongated member. The resilient element being spaced apart from the first part. The first part comprises a rigid second gripping surface (121, 122) for gripping a surface of the elongated member, and the resilient element and the rigid second gripping surface allows the clip to be releasably secured at selected positions along the elongated member and allows said clip in a closed state to be movable along the elongated member, on which it is positioned by exerting a force in the axial direction.
