  • Publication number: 20060203441
    Abstract: Information handling system peripheral cables are managed with a cable clip guide that couples to and extends from the peripheral stand. The cable clip guide includes a support arm that extends substantially perpendicular from the support stand to maintain a ring in a substantially parallel alignment with the support stand. The ring inner circumference guides the cables from the support in a desired direction and is sized to allow movement of the cable through the ring in response to movement of the peripheral, such as the raising, lowering or rotating of a flat panel display. An opening formed from the inner to the outer circumference is sized to retain cables within the ring, however, flexing of the ring increases the opening to allow passage of cables into and out of the ring.

  • Patent number: 6595703
    Abstract: A camera is disclosed which has a housing and a carry strap attached to the housing. The strap has a first position and a second position wherein the first position permits the carry strap to be longitudinally extended from the housing as a closed loop to receive one's hand in said closed loop. The second position is created by drawing the carry strap laterally from the housing to create a positioning loop to permit a portion of the hand to pass through while in mechanical contact with the housing.

  • Patent number: 5630329
    Abstract: A wristwatch bracelet segment includes a core and decorative elements mounted thereon in longitudinally spaced relationship. The core comprises first and second flexible core elements. The first core element is elastically stretchable and includes longitudinally spaced enlargements that define recesses therebetween. The decorative elements are mounted in respective recesses. The second core element is somewhat stiffer than the first core element and is installed through a longitudinal passage formed in the first core element. The first core element is stretched longitudinally to reduce its cross-sectional shape in order to enable the decorative elements (preferably of tubular shape) to be slid onto the first core element. The ends of the second core element are configured to receive connecting pins for connecting a clasp to the bracelet segment, and connecting the bracelet segment to a wristwatch casing.
