  • Patent number: 11145929
    Abstract: A battery pack including a housing having a longitudinal axis, a first surface, and a second surface, electrical terminals positioned within the housing and configured to engage and electrically couple with electrical terminals of a power tool, and a latch mechanism including an actuator that is movable within an aperture in the first surface and a latch member movable within an aperture in the second surface. The latch member includes a first latch portion having a first inclined surface and a second latch portion having a second inclined surface that intersects the first inclined surface. The actuator is depressible to retract the latch member within the housing.

  • Publication number: 20210043891
    Abstract: A battery pack including a housing having a first end, a second end, and a longitudinal axis that extends between the first end and the second end, electrical terminals positioned within the housing and configured to engage and electrically couple with electrical terminals of a power tool, and a latch mechanism including an actuator and a latch member that is spaced apart from the actuator. The actuator has a distal end that is positioned adjacent the first end of the housing, a proximal end that is spaced apart from the distal end, and an actuating surface that extends between the distal end and the proximal end. The actuating surface has a gradually decreasing slope between the distal end and the proximal end.

  • Patent number: 10837451
    Abstract: An inflator tool includes a handle portion extending between a battery receiving portion and a tool head portion. The handle portion defines a longitudinal axis. The tool head portion includes an air inlet, a compression chamber, and an air outlet. A motor is at least partially supported within the handle portion and includes an output shaft. The air inlet defines an inlet axis, and the air outlet defines an outlet axis. The longitudinal axis is disposed at an oblique angle relative to each of the inlet axis and the outlet axis.

  • Publication number: 20200130160
    Abstract: A fastener driver includes a housing, a magazine coupled to the housing containing fasteners therein, and a nosepiece at least partially defining a fastener driving track into which fasteners from the magazine are individually received. A driver blade is movable from a retracted position toward an extended position during which a fastener in the fastener driving track is discharged from an opening in the nosepiece. A work accessory including a guide portion is configured to align an article with the nosepiece opening prior to attaching the article to a workpiece during a fastener driving operation, and a separate puller portion configured to apply a tensile force to an article to be attached to a workpiece during a fastener driving operation. The work accessory is adjustable relative to the nosepiece to selectively position the guide portion or the puller portion proximate the nosepiece opening.

  • Patent number: 10388921
    Abstract: A power tool assembly includes a power tool having a battery support portion that defines a battery insertion axis and a battery operatively engageable with the power tool support portion along the battery insertion axis to provide power to the power tool. The power tool assembly also includes a battery latching mechanism having a latch pivotable about a pivot axis transverse to the battery insertion axis and engageable with one of the battery pack or the battery support portion for securing the battery pack to the battery support portion. The battery latching mechanism further includes a handle coupled for pivoting movement with the latch about the pivot axis.

  • Patent number: 10145547
    Abstract: A cable light includes a battery receptacle that is electrically coupled to a first light module and a second light module. The battery receptacle includes a battery port that receives and retains a battery, such as a power tool battery pack. The first light module and the second light module each include a housing supporting a lens, a light emitter such as an LED, a reflector, and a hanger to hang the light modules on a workpiece. The first light module is electrically coupled to the battery receptacle, and the second light module is electrically coupled to the battery receptacle via a connection with the first light module. The battery receptacle communicates electrical power from the battery pack to the light modules to power the light emitters.
