  • Patent number: 10150520
    Abstract: A spare tire retainer includes a plurality of studs fixed to and extending from one surface of a supporting wall. A tire is assembled to a wheel that defines a plurality of holes that are adapted to receive the plurality of studs. A clamp is assembled to the plurality of studs to secure the wheel to the supporting wall. The plurality of studs may be weld studs that are welded to the supporting wall. The plurality of studs may each define a notch in one side and the clamp may be received in the notches when the clamp is assembled to the studs. A container for a set of tools used to replace a tire is disclosed that may be assembled to the wheel. A plurality of clips is disclosed for securing the container to the wheel. The clips engage a rim of the wheel radially inside the tire. The container may be assembled to the wheel after the clamp secures the wheel to the studs.

  • Patent number: 10065529
    Abstract: The problem of a front seat occupant moving the front seatback so far so as to interfere with the proper positioning of a rear-facing child safety seat or to touch a child's legs while sitting in a front-facing child safety seat is solved by transforming the lower anchor into a segment of an electrical circuit with a normally open switch that is forced to the closed position when a child safety seat attachment system has attached to the lower anchor and the vehicle prevents the front seat from moving beyond a present distance toward the rear seat. The closing of the electrical circuit can be used to supply an input signal to a controller in the vehicle programmed to notify the operator that a child safety seat has been attached to prevent the front seat from moving beyond a fixed distance from the rear seat.
