  • Patent number: 10951853
    Abstract: A connecting structure for attaching a wall-mount fixture to an external portion of a display device includes a fastening member. The fastening member is integrally formed as a one-piece, unitary member. The fastening member includes a receiving part, and first and second bent parts that extend from the receiving part, the first bent part having a first end plate with a threaded hole, the second bent part having a second end plate with a screw insertion hole, the first and second end plates overlapping with respect to each other and facing with the receiving part. The receiving part is configured and arranged to receive a distal end of a screw that extends through the insertion hole of the second end plate and is screwed into the threaded hole of the first end plate such that the screw is prevented from being screwed beyond the receiving part.

  • Patent number: 10335616
    Abstract: An ascender includes a pulley, an input shaft, a support member, a transmission mechanism, a rope guide, a cam, an energizing member, an operating member, and a closing member. A rope is removably wound on the pulley. An output shaft of a rotary electric tool is removably connected to the input shaft. The transmission mechanism transmit a rotational force of the input shaft to the pulley. The cam moves toward the pulley to bite into the rope so as to prevent a movement of the rope when the rope is going to move in a descending direction. The cam moves away from the pulley to allow the movement of the rope when the rope is going to move in an ascending direction.

  • Patent number: 8971027
    Abstract: In a display device cabinet, a fixing assembly to join a front panel and a rear panel include a first fixing mechanism that uses attachment screws and a second fixing mechanism that uses no attachment screws, which have a structure that prevents the application of excessive force to engaging openings and protrusions during the assembly process and disassembly process. The second fixing mechanism includes protrusions on an edge frame of the front panel, a mating piece provided on the rear panel, engaging openings provided in the mating piece, and rib-shaped plates defining stopper elements between the edge frame and the outer frame of the display module. The stopper elements prevent the protrusions from slipping out of the engaging openings by contacting the outer frame. The stopper elements are shaped to prevent interference between the stopper elements and the outer frame during cabinet assembly.
