  • Patent number: 4796915
    Abstract: A seat belt extender for positioning a seat belt being unwound from a seat belt retractor includes two or more multiplastic sleeves telescopically slidable relative one another between retracted and extended positions and having belt passages through which the belt passes from the retractor toward the occupant. A detent mechanism acts between the belt and the endmost of the sleeves to releasably couple the belt and the endmost of the sleeves so that the unwinding and extension of the belt from the retractor causes the belt to carry the endmost sleeve therewith and thereby extend the other sleeve to their extended positions so that the sleeves support the belt at a lifted position relative to the occupant.

  • Patent number: 4586590
    Abstract: Two separate hydraulic master cylinders are connected with pressure lines to the front and rear brake cylinders. These two master cylinders are mechanically connected together by an articulating balance bar, all of which is mounted on a slidable mounting bracket. The mounting bracket is slidably movable by a reversible electric motor driving a worm gear that is connected to the mounting bracket. The relative position of the mounting bracket on its mounting plate in relation to the input point of a push rod determines the proportioning ratio of the two master cylinders. The assembly may be moved to obtain any proportioning ratio from 100% front brake to 100% rear braking.
