  • Patent number: 10288104
    Abstract: A blind rivet including a sleeve and a flange on one end of the sleeve, and a mandrel including a shaft and a head, the head having a cutting edge for cutting open the sleeve. The sleeve of the rivet body has a thick portion, and a thin which has an inner diameter larger than the thick portion. The shaft of the mandrel has a large diameter portion, a middle diameter portion, a small diameter portion having an outer diameter smaller than the middle diameter portion, and a securing and attaching groove which is between the middle diameter portion and the small diameter portion. When the blind rivet is fastened, the middle diameter portion of the mandrel causes the material of the thick portion to undergo metal flow and to flow into the securing and attaching groove, enabling the mandrel to be tightly secured to the rivet body.

  • Patent number: 7163365
    Abstract: A pivot shaft includes a shaft member having a male screw portion to be thread-connected to a vehicle body frame, and a nut member having a female screw portion to be thread-connected to part of a male screw portion of the shaft member corresponding to a projecting thread portion projecting from the vehicle body frame. The nut member as a locknut is attached so as to prevent the rotation of the adjusted shaft member. The locknut is a nut member formed into a cap-shape or a ball-head locknut shape. A tool engaging portion to which a multi-purpose tightening tool can be engaged is formed on the nut member. Since the multi-purpose tool can be engaged with the tool engaging portion on the nut member accurately, control of a tightening torque is facilitated, and the number of steps for controlling the tightening torque can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 7044489
    Abstract: To make steerability more satisfactory in conformity with actual operation, by correcting the regulation of a damping force based on a variable quantity which has a close relationship with the magnitude of kick-back and with which the steering conditions at the time of actual operation can be grasped appropriately, in contrast to the system in which the regulation of the damping force is controlled linearly in proportion to a variable quantity related to the magnitude of kick-back. In a steering damper system of the liquid pressure type in which a damping force is exerted on a front wheel steering system provided at a front portion of a vehicle body and which comprises a control valve for making the damping force variable, the damping force is controlled based on the steering speed.
