  • Publication number: 20180126911
    Abstract: A step system, for a pickup truck having a tailgate movable between a closed position and an open position, includes a mounting bracket configured to couple to the pickup truck, and a link system pivotably coupled to the mounting bracket and configured to operably and mechanically couple to the tailgate such that movement of the tailgate from the closed position to the open position automatically pivots the link system from a stowed position beneath the pickup truck to a deployed position rear of the pickup truck. A step portion is coupled to the link system and configured to provide a step for an individual between the ground and the tailgate when the link system is in the deployed position.

  • Patent number: 7533376
    Abstract: A platform independent binary object (PIBO) operable on disparate computing environments that have a selected hardware architecture without requiring rebuilding or reloading is provided. The PIBO can be parsed to generate source-code stub file. The PIBO can be loaded and linked with a cooperating computing application by an exemplary linker/loader employing the stub file. Also, the PIBO can be used in various contexts, including but not limited to, as a mechanism for dynamically linking shared objects on platforms that do not offer such native facility; in utilizing pre-written code components on platforms that otherwise would be incompatible due to a violation of platform constraints within particular code; as a mechanism for loading non object-oriented code that circumvents restrictions of multiple execution instances and repeat execution inherent in the code; and as mechanism that allows for the use of a binary object to add on functionality on a closed platform.
