  • Patent number: 5908244
    Abstract: A flaccid plastic film bag has opposed handle portions. Each handle has side elements upstanding from the bag body on either side of a hand-receiving aperture. Slits are provided in the edges of the side elements. The slits originate inward of the edge and extend downward and outward to cut through the edge. When one handle is passed through the aperture of the other handle to close the mouth of the bag, the slitted edges prevent the handles from slipping apart and spilling the contents of a loaded bag during transport.

  • Patent number: 5433622
    Abstract: A high voltage electrical connector has a mating pair of male and female contacts, each one soldered to an end of conductors that are to be joined to safely carry a high electrical voltage. One of the contacts is mounted in an insulating sleeve with a smooth outer cylindrical surface. The other contact is mounted in a resilient shroud. The shroud has a smooth bore coaxial with the contacts. At least one ring or ridge extends radially inward from the bore. The ring wipes clean the surface of the sleeve as the shroud is stretched over the sleeve during mating of the contacts. When mated, the ring is tightly compressed against the surface of the sleeve, excluding air and foreign matter from the surface. This prevents arcing and escape of current from the contacts to the surroundings. The shroud greatly increases the voltage that the connector can safely carry. Silicone rubber is a preferred material for the shroud.
