  • Patent number: 8864347
    Abstract: An illustrative modular light fixture apparatus may comprise a plurality of modules, each having a base component and a cover component. The base component has a split vertical male plug positioned within a cylindrical recess, and a cylindrical female receptacle formed at an opposite end thereof. The cylindrical female receptacle and split male plug are so configured such that the female receptacle of one module will snap fittingly or otherwise interconnect with the split male plug of another module. The cover component has respective pairs of rectangular openings on first and second sides thereof configured to snap fittingly engage respective tabs on the sides of the base component as the cover component is pushed downwardly over the base component to thereby attach the cover component to the base component.

  • Patent number: 8801237
    Abstract: Modular LED light fixture units are interconnected together in articulated fashion with each modular unit including a base component and a cover component. First and second of the base components each include a cylindrical recess formed at a first end with a vertical boss positioned therein, the vertical boss having a threaded opening therein and an extension member formed at a second, opposite end and positioned within first and second outer fingers. The hole in the extension member of the first base component and the boss of the second base component are so positioned, shaped, and dimensioned that a fastener is insertable through the hole in the extension member of the first base component and into the boss of the second base component to thereby pivotally interconnect the first and second base components.

  • Patent number: 8672508
    Abstract: An LED light fixture comprising a contoured light transmissive lens cover pivotally mounted between upper and lower end brackets so as to be movable between an open position and a closed position wherein in the closed position the upper and lower contoured edges of the lens cover mate flushly with the contoured surface of respective upper and lower end caps. A bank of LED carrying housing components are attached between the upper and lower mounting brackets so as to direct illumination toward the lens cover. Expansion brackets may be employed to facilitate addition of one or more additional banks of LED carrying housing components behind a lens cover of longer length to thereby created a sconce fixture of extended length.
