  • Patent number: 8544128
    Abstract: A hand-held tool for individuals who have diminished use of their hands or reduced gripping strength due to infirmity or medical condition that provides a number of shaped spaces for seating and manipulation of various items that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to manipulate. Among the multiple shaped spaces is a space for a writing instrument and a space for an eating utensil enabling a user to write and eat without for example, directly gripping a pencil or a fork.

  • Patent number: 7774967
    Abstract: A rectangular banner display assembly for the rapid installation and replacement of ad banners having a frame with two horizontal members both of which are built of extruded segments with channels along which a pre-rolled banner is slid into position during installation. The frame includes a member supportive of a spindle over which the pre-rolled banner is placed and from which the banner is drawn longitudinally. A vertical end-cap with a hinge-able flap partially occludes the member supportive of a spindle while in a closed position, but is opened to access the spindle. A second vertical end cap with a hinge-able flap is opened to expel a banner to be replaced. A method of quickly replacing a previously installed ad banner with a new ad banner by taping the leading end of a new banner with the trailing end of previously installed banner is disclosed. While expelling the previously installed ad banner out the end of the banner display assembly, the new ad banner is drawn along to take its place.

  • Patent number: 5060553
    Abstract: An armor material for use in protecting personnel and instrumentation from ball round, armor piercing bullets and shrapnel, comprises a glass-ceramic bonded to an energy absorptive backing comprising high tensile fibers embedded in a natural or synthetic polymer. The glass-ceramic is subjected to controlled crystallization by heat treatment to promote optimum ballistic properties which are equal to or better than those of alumina despite the lower density and hardness of the glass-ceramic material.

  • Patent number: 4602973
    Abstract: Apparatus for the manufacture of fabric, especially tire building fabric ply material, in which a pair of rotatable parallel spindles are each surrounded by a helical member rotatable in the opposite direction to the respective spindles. The opposite rotation of the spindles and the helical members helps to ensure a uniform winding as fabric is built up from filamentary material applied around the spindles from a feeding head rotating around the spindles.

  • Patent number: 3948475
    Abstract: A bracket for mounting a headlight assembly between the fork tubes of a motorcycle. The bracket includes an elongated central body member with integral adjustment bolts extending from both ends. Engagement sleeves are received over the adjustment bolts and positioned along the adjustment bolts by sleeve nuts. The headlight is secured to the central body member. The bracket is secured between the fork tubes by operation of the adjustment nuts forcing the engagement sleeves into frictional engagement with the fork tubes.
