  • Patent number: 9914042
    Abstract: A sports glove such as those for hockey, lacrosse, cricket, baseball and the like is formed as a palm and a separate back with a continuous peripheral closure for attachment of the two parts. The fingers inside the finger stalls are protected from contact with the closure material which is typically a metallic or plastic zipper, wherein carefully proportioned padding inside the finger stalls insulates each finger side and distal end from contact with the closure thus offering adequate protection. Furthermore, a pivotable inside wrist cuff flap is provided which creates a smooth transition of inside glove liner material protecting the palm and inside wrist from contact with hook and loop closure materials in the area as the hand is inserted into the glove.

  • Patent number: 9839833
    Abstract: A method of protecting a participant user, participant player, players, referee, official, coach or spectator from skin contact with an exposed connector by isolating the connector of a sports glove, which includes a front palm portion having finger stalls for insertion of fingers therein, and a rear back joinable portion which is attachable to said front palm portion by a connector, such as a zipper. The method includes the step of removably covering the zipper connector with a friction fit fly cover having an attachment end and a free end, wherein further lifting of the free end of the fly cover exposes the zipper for participant user engagement therewith. The fly cover prevents any exposure of the metallic or plastic connector.

  • Patent number: 9364731
    Abstract: A hockey stick blade of a type having a puck-striking body of weight and an imparting construction material inclined at a selected angle for driving a struck puck a corresponding selected height during its trajectory, has spaced-apart top and bottom surfaces bounding a striking surface there between. A method of improving weight distribution includes removing construction material from the top surface, relocating at least part of said removed construction material or its weight from top surface to clearance positions below the top surface located toward the bottom surface. The removed construction material is from a location not used during puck-striking service of the hockey stick blade, and the removed construction material in the relocated positions contribute to increasing the height attained by the puck struck by the blade.

  • Patent number: 5486000
    Abstract: For weight distribution in a golf iron club head, the use of construction material from a location thereon never used in play, namely centrally along a top edge of the ball-striking face, advantageously relocated to the toe, sole, heel or combinations thereof, to contribute to sweet spot-enhancement in at least two respects, viz. first, that weight in the removal location is counterproductive to a good hit and removal is a benefit even if not relocated elsewhere, and second that said weight that is relocated being sourced from the club head itself, does not change the overall swing weight of the club head, which typically is selected according to the size and handicap of the golfer and should remain unchanged.
